Boston College Eagles (2000)

In 2000, Boston College celebrated the new millennium by introducing a new logo and word marks, used by the school to this day. The school also changed its uniforms across the board, but the football unis used a peculiar number font -- something sorta-kinda-but-not-quite-impact -- that lasted only one year before the Eagles switched to the slanted font that was more in line with their word mark and was used until 2011.

While the uniforms changed, the helmets, thankfully, remained the same.

The season was also notable for the beginning of BC's fabled eight-year bowl winning streak, starting with a 31-17 win over Arizona State in the Aloha Bowl on Christmas Day (there are worse places to spend the holidays, I suppose). If there's one downer, it's that none of the bowls were of the BCS variety.
