It took 972 days, but the Eagles finally delivered their fanbase an ACC victory at home on Friday night against FSU.
A.J. Dillon and the linebackers were bright spots in the Eagles’ blowout win over Florida State, but BC was still plagued by dropped passes and an uneven passing game rhythm.
A.J. Dillon rushed for 149 yards, and Anthony Brown added two more touchdowns to his career total, as BC racked up 35 points—its most ever against FSU—in the fourth annual Welles Crowther Red Bandana game.
Earlier this month, people were starting to speculate whether or not the Eagles would win a single conference game this season. Now, there’s no telling when they’ll lose one.
The Seminoles are on pace to miss their first bowl game since 1982. But as far as Eagles head coach Steve Addazio is concerned, FSU is still one of the most talented teams in the nation.
The Eagles have scored 40 or more points in back-to-back games for the first time since 2002. Their scoring average has jumped 6.7 points, and their entertainment value has skyrocketed.
Anthony Brown completed close to 80 percent of his passes and tossed three touchdowns in what was the Eagles’ largest margin of victory against an ACC opponent in the Steve Addazio era.
The Eagles will likely lean on freshman stud A.J. Dillon as it tries for its first two-game ACC winning streak since 2014.
