Fenway Bowl free live stream (12/28): How to watch SMU-Boston College online, TV, time


No. 17 SMU gets an Atlantic Coast Conference prequel when it plays Boston College in the Fenway Bowl on Thursday, Dec. 28. The game will be live streamed on DirecTV Stream (free trial) and fuboTV (free trial and $20 off the first two months).

After winning the American Athletic Conference championship in their final season there, the Mustangs get a head start on their ACC membership when they face BC at the home of the Boston Red Sox in a preview of a new league rivalry set to begin next season.

Conference realignment has shaken up college football, and perhaps nowhere is the shuffling weirder than in SMU’s jump to the ACC. The decidedly not Atlantic coast Dallas school is joining along with California and Stanford to create a — for now — 17-team league beginning in 2024. (To garner the invite, SMU agreed to give up its share of the ACC’s television revenues for years.)

No one is suggesting that the Mustangs (11-2) won’t be able to compete when they step up to the Power Five.

SMU has won nine straight games, including a 26-14 victory over then 17th-ranked Tulane in the AAC title game to reach a bowl game for the second time in as many seasons under Lashlee. A 12th victory would be the most since the 1935 team won the national championship.

The Mustangs were hoping for a spot in a New Year’s Six bowl game. But with starting quarterback Preston Stone out — he broke his leg in the Nov. 25 regular-season finale against Navy — they were relegated to the Fenway Bowl against BC, the 10th-best team in the ACC.

When is SMU-Boston College?

Boston College and SMU play at 10 a.m. (11 a.m. ET) on Thursday, Dec. 28.
