By Kevin Kelley -

The Boston College Eagles have added the New Hampshire Wildcats to their 2028 football schedule, has learned.

A copy of the football game agreement with Boston College was obtained from the University of New Hampshire via a state public records request.

Boston College will host New Hampshire at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, Mass., on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2028. The Eagles will pay the Wildcats a $400,000 guarantee for playing the game, according to the copy of the contract.

The 2028 Boston College-New Hampshire contest will mark the 12th overall meeting between the two schools on the gridiron. The two schools first met in 1899 and last played in 1936, which resulted in a 12-0 win for the Eagles to give them a 6-5 advantage in the series.

New Hampshire is a member of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Wildcats finished the 2021 season 3-8 overall and 2-6 in CAA action.

With the addition of New Hampshire, Boston College has  tentatively completed its non-conference schedule for the 2028 season. Other opponents for Boston College in 2028 include the Stanford Cardinal (Sept. 2) and the Army Black Knights (Sept. 23) at home and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish on the road (date to be announced).

New Hampshire now has two non-conference opponents set for their 2028 schedule. The Wildcats are also slated to play at the Dartmouth Big Green on Sept. 23 that season.
