On Nov. 23, 1984 Boston College Eagles quarterback Doug Flutie found himself in a very tough position. With his team down by two to the defending national champion Miami Hurricanes, Flutie was 73 yards from his own end zone and only six seconds left on the clock. But then, this happened:
To commemorate the 'Miracle in Miami,' Boston College Athletics unveiled new 30th anniversary uniforms to be worn on Nov. 21, when the Eagles take on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish at Fenway Park.
Made by Under Armour, the uniforms were inspired but what transpired back in 1985. The numbers on the front and back mimic the font used during that year and the gold-colored pants are the same color as what was worn in the late 80's.
The team will also do away with their signature maroon stripe down the middle of their helmet and go with an all-gold cap.
Boston College Athletics released a full graphic of all that Under Armour did to create the uniforms.
The replica jerseys, as well as other memoribilia, will be for sale in BC bookstores as well as online.
