The Eagles travel to Morgantown to take on the Mountaineers in a matchup that could ultimately decide the Big East championship. Boston College currently trails West Virginia by a game in the conference standings, but a win on Saturday would give the Eagles the all-important head-to-head tiebreaker. Don't expect West Virginia to make it easy.

Who: Boston College (21) at West Virginia (10)
When: Sat., 3:30 ET (CBS)
Where: Mountaineer Field, Morgantown, WV
West Virginia is undefeated in the conference and controls its own destiny. With two more victories, West Virginia will earn its second consecutive Big East title, as well as its first ever BCS berth. Saturday's game should be decided when the Mountaineers' stellar offense takes the field against Boson College's stout defense.

With Boston College set to depart for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season, this is the Eagles' last chance to compete for that title. Will the locals give the Eagles a raucous send off, or can Boston College play its way into a New Year's Day bowl?
