The Eagles emerged winners against Tennessee Chattanooga and Central Michigan, but also blew a lead against Penn State and fell to St. Johns and Georgia Southern at the Madeira Beach tournament in Florida.
The last time BC played Virginia Tech, the Eagles were held to 80 passing yards, 44 yards on the ground, and, worst of all, zero points.
On paper, the Eagles’ Week Four win was just what they needed: a 20-point blowout. But a subpar passing game, missed field goals, and two late-game turnovers raise some serious questions.
Michael Walker gave BC a short field on three huge punt returns versus the Chippewas on a rainy Saturday afternoon.
BC needs to establish its run game against the Chippewas in what looks to be a must-win contest on Saturday.
Fourth quarter aside, the Eagles’ defensive performance on Saturday was encouraging to say the least. Their offense, on the other hand, was hit with another injury in the trenches and failed to reach double-digits.
