As improbable as it may seem, the BC football team (“Why Not Them”?) owns the local headlines today with a big 36-17 win at Morgantown over West Virginia. West Virginia was set to clinch a BCS bid before their home fans on Senior Day. But that was not about to happen yesterday. In his game story, Michael Vega explains that BC’s special teams were just that, special. They included two punt returns for touchdowns, three for three on field goals and a 76-yard punt. Bob Ryan says BC put it all together on offense, defense, and special teams for 60 minutes. Mike Shalin explains that BC was up to Tim Bulman
