Boston College's font is custom-made for the athletic department. It's used for all sport-specific logos, names and numbers on all uniforms, regardless of manufacturers (except for hockey, which has "Boston College" set in the font Compacta.)

SF Archery is very close to it, and is probably the closest font found for it.

Anyone know what this font is?

I know it was used for Mission: Impossible 2, and I've seen it's now being used in some of the promotional material for Fantastic 4. I've also seen it used in other various places. I knew the name of it at one point, but now I can't remember it for the life of me.

I promise I'll write it down this time. :D

Pretty much any font you see for a pro-teams wordmark, 99 times out of 100, its a custom font.

For this year? Not sure yet. For the past 5 years it's been Aurora. With a little bit of Bank Gothic thrown in.
