VCU will face Boston College in the 2024 Veterans Classic on Nov. 8, with both games televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.

VCU will face off against Boston College in a nationally televised non-conference match-up as part of the 2024 Veterans Classic, hosted by the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

The annual doubleheader will return for an 11th edition on Friday, Nov. 8, 2024 when the Rams and Eagles meet at 6 p.m. at Navy's Alumni Hall. Navy will host Harvard at 8:30 p.m. in the nightcap. Both contests will be televised nationally on CBS Sports Network.

VCU and Boston College have met just once previously, when the Rams scored a 69-50 victory over the Eagles on Dec. 28, 2014 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. Led by fourth-year Head Coach Earl Grant, Boston College is coming off a 20-16 campaign that saw BC reach the second round of the NIT.

This will be VCU's second all-time appearance at the Veterans Classic. The Rams scored an 85-69 win over Tennessee at the event to kick off the 2014-15 season.

The Veterans Classic, held annually around Veterans Day, honors our nation's veterans and showcases the U.S. Naval Academy. Each of the visiting teams immerse themselves in the inner workings of the U.S. Naval Academy through guided tours followed by lunch with the Brigade of Midshipmen on the day before the games. Veterans from all service branches are honored during the course of the Friday night doubleheader.

Tickets for the doubleheader are now on sale through the Navy Ticket Office by either calling or texting 1-800-US4-NAVY or by clicking on the TICKETS tab in the masthead of and then selecting BASKETBALL. Reserved tickets for the doubleheader in the lower level of Alumni Hall are $40 and upper level general admission seats can be purchased for $25.
