BC's Football Fairytale

By any measurement, this is a Golden Age for New England sports. The Boston Red Sox play game 2 of the World Series tonight at Fenway. The Celtics are early favorites for the NBA finals, and sports pundits are already speculating that the New England Patriots could be the first team in 35 years to go through undefeated.

So, it's no wonder that that "other" local football team with a perfect record is under the radar right now. The Boston College Eagles are 7 and 0 this year, fielding a Heisman Trophy candidate and looking at a possible spot in the national championship. WBUR's Kevin Donovan, a BC alumnus, checks in on the team's fairytale season.
