Bronx, NY (SportsNetwork.com) - Old rivals square off at Yankee Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the Boston College Eagles take on the Penn State Nittany Lions in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Boston College logged a 7-5 record this season, the second under head coach Steve Addazio, and the team went an even 4-4 in Atlantic Coast Conference play to finish fourth in the Atlantic Division. The Eagles, took down another long-time rival in Syracuse in their regular-season finale, 28-7, to stop a two-game losing streak and bring a little bit of momentum into this matchup. BC is appearing in its 24th bowl game (13-10), and this is the second straight year in which the Eagles have participated in the postseason following a three-year drought. Addazio, who led Boston College to a 7-6 record in 2013, was recently given a contract extension through the 2020 season. We are honored to be headed to New York City to play Penn State in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. This is the perfect bowl destination for us as so many of our players, their families, our alumni and fans are from the New York metropolitan area, said Brad Bates, Boston College Director of Athletics. Penn State has one of the greatest traditions in college football and there is quite a history between our two programs. New York is within driving distance of our students and supporters, so we expect a great crowd of fans cheering on the Eagles. This is a wonderful reward for our student-athletes and we could not be more excited. The fact that Penn State is even in a bowl game this year is a major accomplishment, as the NCAA decided earlier in the season to lift its postseason ban on the school after lauding the Nittany Lions for their compliance to penalties imposed as a result of the Jerry Sandusky sex abuse scandal. The 2014 campaign, the first under head coach James Franklin, started off positively enough as the team won its first four games. However, Penn State was brought back to reality as it promptly lost four in a row before stopping the bleeding with a 13-7 win at Indiana. That was followed by a 30-13 triumph over Temple, which ironically enough was coached by Addazio prior to him taking the BC job, but that was followed by consecutive defeats against Illinois and Michigan State to close things out. Still, at 6-6 (2-6 Big Ten), the Lions were offered the opportunity to play in the postseason for the 45th time (ninth-most in the FBS), winning 24 of them (fourth-best). Penn State, which last appeared in the 2012 TicketCity Bowl (a 30-14 loss to Houston) and is making its first trip to New York City since 1947, had all wins from 1998-2011 vacated by the NCAA. We are very excited and appreciative to be going to New York City to play in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl, Franklin said. Penn State has a long and storied bowl history and we look forward to another opportunity to keep our family together. I am so happy for our players, especially the seniors, for this chance to play together one more time. The thing that makes Penn State special is the people, and we cant wait to see our alumni and fans storming New York and filling Yankee Stadium on December 27. The series between these two northeastern schools dates back to 1949, and features 23 meetings. Penn State won 19 of the first 20, but Boston College has won the last three, the most recent of which taking place on the Eagles home field on Sept. 11, 2004 (21-7). This game features one of the nations top rushing teams (BC, 215.8 ypg) against the No. 1 rushing defense (PSU, 84.8 ypg). The tandem of QB Tyler Murphy and RB Jon Hilliman spearhead the Boston College attack, with the former not only throwing for more than 1,500 and 11 TDs, but also leading the rushing effort with 1,079 yards and 10 scores. Hilliman has churned out 712 yards and found the end zone 12 times for a team that puts up 25.9 ppg behind a typical output of 383.8 ypg. No pass catcher has more than the 26 grabs for 342 yards and three TDs belonging to Josh Bordner. The Boston College defense has had its ups and downs this season, but the units overall yield of 20.5 points and 313.5 yards per game is certainly respectable. The Eagles gave up at least 30 points three times, but held several opponents in check, including defending national champion Florida State in the penultimate game of the regular season, as the Seminoles managed just 20 points in a three-point victory. Like Penn State, BC has also stood strong against the run, permitting 95.5 ypg and only 3.1 ypc. Its effort against the pass hasnt been terrible, with foes generating 218 ypg that way, and the Eagles have logged 31 sacks while coming up with a dozen takeaways. Justin Simmons leads the club with 70 tackles and two INTs, and while no player had more than four sacks, Josh Keys was credited with 11.5 of the teams 84 stops behind the line of scrimmage. Despite throwing for a Penn State sophomore record 2,606 yards, QB Christian Hackenberg had a down year with only eight touchdowns and 15 interceptions. Despite his signal callers relative ineffectiveness, DaeSean Hamilton had a tremendous rookie campaign in reeling in 75 balls for 848 yards. He did only have one TD catch though. Eugene Lewis tallied 48 receptions for 669 yards and a score, while Jesse James found the end three times on his 35 grabs. Sophomore Akeel Lynch ran for 603 yards and four TDs, but really came on in the last three games, logging more than half of those yards (318) with three scores. Bill Belton scored six rushing TDs in amassing 518 yards for the Lions. Penn State put up just 19.8 ppg during the regular season, but allowed only 17.7 ppg. As mentioned, the teams stance against the run is the primary reason it was even competitive most times out, although the effort against the pass was certainly nothing to complain about as foes generated just 185 ypg and only eight TDs through the air. Senior Mike Hull logged a Big Ten-best 134 tackles this year, and he is just four shy of cracking the top-5 in school history for a single season. Nyeem Wartman was the closest player to Hull, but he is well off the pace set by the All-American linebacker, having logged 64 stops. Anthony Zettel and Deion Barnes have combined for 14 of the teams 30 sacks, while Zettel and Adrian Amos each have three picks. <a href="http://www.yeezy350v2italia.it/">Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Italia</a>. Heck, we might just miss the BCS. Maybe? It sort of worked out this season. Top-ranked Florida State (13-0) was the only team to get through the regular season unbeaten, and the Seminoles did it in dominating fashion. <a href="http://www.yeezy350v2italia.it/yeezy-boost-350-v2-yeezreel-offerte.html">Yeezy Boost 350 V2 Yeezreel</a>.Y. -- It was as if Matt Moulson never left the New York Islanders. <a href="http://www.yeezy350v2italia.it/yeezy-boost-350-offerte.html">http://www.yeezy350v2italia.it/yeezy-boost-350-offerte.html</a>.

The reason were here: its nearly time for Torontos Honda Indy and Honda Canada is gearing up for the big race with this event featuring Indy racing rock star James Hinchcliffe. The event features track time in three different cars: a Formula F race car; a 2014 Honda Civic Coupe Si, a zippy street monster whose 2.4L 4-cylinder engine emits 205hp and 174lb.-ft. torque; and some dangerous-looking go karts that speed up to 70 km/h mere centimeters from the ground. Hinchcliffe is just the big draw for our editors. Its driving the cars that were here for! To be fair, Hinchcliffe is a draw. Not only are his racing credentials impeccable—Hinch managed three Indy victories last year and took home 2011s ‘Rookie of the Year title—but hes a rare Canadian who has made a name for himself as a professional racer. Calling my own experience on the track “racing” is something akin to sitting in a 25-cent grocery store ride-on space-ship and calling that a trip to the moon. But, let me try to explain what it felt like anyway, because its about as close as most of us normals will get to the moon—or to being a professional race car driver. 9:00am Appropriately Lightening Crashes and rains falls until just minutes ago. So, despite the rising heat, the three tracks are patchily damp and puddled. My group is driving the go karts first. 24 year-old Daniel Morad, already a Canadian racing legend (he won the 2007 American Formula BMW championship and 2010 World Championship in the Rotax Max Challenge Grand Finals in La Conca, Italy), warns us of oversteer. We have rear brakes only on this wet, yet wonderfully challenging track. In spite of Morads warnings, for a half hour, we all spin 360 degrees in turns tighter than LIVE performing a third encore after a four-month tour. 10:30am ‘Use the whole track. The peppy Civic Si is my flying classroom. Voice crackling instructions via walkie-talkie, pro driver Jeff Boyce coaches us. We take turns flying through the circuit behind Boyce, observing where he floats, brakes, begins and completes turning. Pylons at corner apexes beckon the eye (briefly) into turns. Other series of cones, grouped into threes, twos and ones inform when to brake, then turn. Theres a lot to know and years of poor habits to overcome. It occurs to me how fortunate my group is. We began with fun go karting to quell nerves, then this technically challenging and massively educational hands-on schooling in Civics to heighten awareness — saving the best for last. Then we see the Formula F racer up close. ‘Will we eeven fit in that? 11:20am Im a sausage, zipped inside a Honda suit that restricts breathing, shimmying into the Formula F ‘casing.dddddddddddd They remove the steering wheel for driver access. My small Caucasian keister and broadish shoulders barely fit. Its uncomfortably tiny, like the suit. Then they say, “Go!” Suddenly, this restrictive cylinder magically expands to an angelic extension of my consciousness — a roaring vengeful angel! The steering is too precise; it feels unreal. Marking then finding apex and braking cones becomes almost second nature. The shifter is the width of a pencil and tempting to shift with pinky extended as though drinking tea. Power? The uninitiated may scoff at the 2013 Honda Fit engine, outputting 110 hp. But this speedster weighs just 1,125 lbs with driver (keep in mind that a driverless Smart car weighs 1,650). Then theres the speed sensation. Consider: why does sliding prone on a skateboard, face near the ground, trump 900 km/h at 20,000 ft? Perspective. The VanDiemens view is about as high as the go kart — but 17 times more powerful. Imagine driving a really fast and stiff sleeping bag. And the feeling? Like a sunny Friday June afternoon when you got a raise and your boss was fired. 11:40am Im shotgun as Hinchcliffe rips out a hot lap. Weirdly, its nothing compared to the crack hit I was riding just minutes back. The car is so much higher up, it feels more normal, and when youre just a passenger youre not the one with all that power at your disposal. For Hinch doing these hot laps must be about as thrilling as an unintended afternoon nap. Leading up to lunch, I poll the events professional drivers for tips on driving better. * James Hinchcliffe: “Safety is the most important thing for people who want to drive better. For young people interested in racing, theres a whole other side to your career — the marketing.” * Chris Bye: Three-day racing courses re-teach important basics. They cost thousands but nobody ever told him it wasnt worth it, even if they never raced afterwards. * Jeff Boyce: Take his race-school training. * Daniel Morad: Using a different language, he said the same. What acute irony that Hinch emphasized marketings importance just before his colleagues shilled for their driving schools. Yet they werent wrong. If dangerous idiots were forced to buy track lessons and learn the essentials of speed and motion, our roads would be far safer. Noon Aglow from driving the light speed Formula F, I spy a pretty woman grilling meat and accept the rawest steak she has.
