The Eagles had a chance to clinch their first eight-win season since 2009, but Steve Addazio elected to punt the game away to Florida State, which kept its 36-year bowl streak alive with a 74-yard game-winning touchdown.
During his Monday weekly press conference, head coach Steve Addazio told reporters that both Anthony Brown and A.J. Dillon are day-to-day, heading into Week 12.
Michael Walker returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Eagles managed just 113 total yards of offense and eight first downs in a dismal performance against the Tigers and their excellent defensive line.
According to head coach Steve Addazio, the 2018 Tigers—currently ranked No. 2 in the nation—might just be the best team he’s ever seen in his coaching career, at the very least since he’s taken over at BC.
Trailing by a touchdown at the break, the Eagles’ defense responded by only allowing 147 yards and seven points in the second half, setting the stage for BC’s first win over Virginia Tech in four years.
A pair of trick plays jumpstarted the Eagles’ offense—a unit that scored on its first three possessions and made Miami, the second-ranked defensive team in the country, look, quite frankly, overrated.
