Stanford announced Monday the addition of a future football series with Boston College.
The Cardinal face the Eagles in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, on Sept. 2, 2028. Boston College will travel to Stanford Stadium on Sept. 15, 2029.
Stanford and Boston College have met four times, most recently in 2002. The series is tied at 2-2. The Cardinal is 9-10 all-time against current Atlantic Coast Conference teams.
Stanford's 2016 season opener will be Sept. 2 at Stanford Stadium against Kansas State, the first meeting between the programs.
In 2002, Buddy Teevens made his Stanford coaching debut in a 34-27 loss at Boston College. The Cardinal took a 27-17 lead into the fourth quarter but couldn't maintain the momentum.
Quarterback Kyle Matter made his collegiate debut against the Eagles and fared well. He completed 17 of 27 passes for 244 yards and a seven-yard touchdown pass to Teyo Johnson. He also ran 10 yards for another score.
