Boston College football picked up its first win against Maine last week, but it was far from perfect. Fortunately for the Eagles, they’ll get another shot against an FCS team in Howard.
Howard University will have to learn how to embrace the moral victories if it wants to come away with any successes against BC this weekend.
BC football was forced to schedule two FCS opponents in 2015 because of a broken contract with New Mexico State. Although many look down on the weak schedule, it will be best for the youthful Eagles in the end.
Darius Wade and the Eagles will excite a lot of people with their dynamic passing game. If only we all stay a little patient.
Though the offense didn’t look sharp in BC’s season opener, Bobby Swigert’s triumphant return after being sidelined for three years with various knee injuries inspired the Eagles to a 24-3 win over Maine.
FCS teams who upset FBS opponents have excellent clock management, stout defenses, and the ability to make big plays. Fortunately for BC, Maine has none of these.
