The Eagles walked out with a huge upset win.

Boston College entered Chestnut Hill Saturday afternoon as a 15-point underdog to the No. 1 team in the country: Duke.

However, when all was said and done, the Eagles left Silvio Conte Forum with an 89-84 win over Coach K and company.

The Blue Devils entered the game with an undefeated record, but fell at the hands of their ACC opponent who came into the game with three blemishes on its record.

Although their first ACC game didn't go as planned the Blue Devils still have a long season ahead. Duke also has arguably the best player in the county in Marvin Bagley, so there's no reason to panic.

It's a huge win for Boston College in front of its home fans.
