COLLEGE FOOTBALL DAILY REPORT : AROUND THE NATION

Boston College Probes Alleged Gambling

November 04, 1996|Associated Press

Boston College officials were mum while meeting with investigators most of the day about possible illegal gambling activity involving members of the school's football team. WHDH-TV in Boston, however, reported that "the school was looking into five players that gambled on games and may have bet on BC to lose.". . . . The Big East made a small move in The Associated Press' Top 25 college football poll, with Syracuse and Virginia Tech moving back into the rankings and West Virginia falling out. Florida remained No. 1 for the seventh straight week, and the Top 10 was unchanged in balloting by the 67 sports writers and broadcasters. The Orangemen (5-2), off a 30-7 victory over West Virginia, returned to the rankings at No. 24, while the Hokies are back in at No. 25 after a 47-16 win over Southwestern Louisiana. West Virginia (7-2) dropped out after being ranked 18th.
