BC football to host Miami in 2012 opener

Boston College will open its 2012 football season at home against Miami on Labor Day weekend, according to sources at Boston College.

The likely dates are Sunday or Monday, although the entire weekend remains in play.

The Eagles will likely play at home against Maine the next weekend.

BC will have only six home games next season because a game against Army was moved to to West Point.

The Cadets will play at BC in 2013.
