A revamped front seven for the Blue Devils looks to stuff the run and take care of the Eagles in Durham.
Despite a multitude of injuries, Boston College head coach Steve Addazio’s team has enough offense to hang with the Blue Devils.
After an injury to Jon Hilliman, BC’s offense is crippled. But with the best defense in the country, the offense has to do just enough to win four games.
Despite a win, Boston College nearly gift-wrapped the game to Northern Illinois with poor clock management and a predictable play-calling strategy.
A patchwork offense, led by Jonathan Hilliman’s resurgence and a two-QB system, lifted the Eagles over Northern Illinois.
Coming off a near upset of Ohio State, Northern Illinois poses a threat to BC with it’s strong secondary and dynamic offensive schemes.
Quarterback issues aside, BC football needs to revive its power run game, which struggled last week.
With quarterback Darius Wade out for the season with a broken ankle, Troy Flutie—not Jeff Smith, should start at quarterback for Steve Addazio’s team.
One week after putting up 76 points against Howard, Jon Hilliman and the Eagles disappeared on the offensive side of the ball in a 14-0 shutout by the Seminoles. To make matters worse for BC, Darius Wade will miss the remainder of the season with a broken left ankle.
