After a bounceback win over N.C. State, BC has the unenviable task of heading to South Carolina to face a Tigers squad that has won 22 straight games.
Anthony Brown left the game in the first quarter with an internal body injury, and the Eagles never really found an on offensive rhythm, recording just 113 total yards against Clemson hours after hosting College GameDay.
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.
The Eagles entered the fourth quarter of Saturday’s game with a chance to pull off one of the biggest upsets in program history. Judging by the final score, you’d never know.
Kelly Bryant and the Tigers pose a tough challenge to a BC defense that got torched for over 500 rushing yards in last week’s loss to Notre Dame.
Head coach Steve Addazio said that his team’s defensive meltdown against Notre Dame was a result of missed assignments and tackles. The unit will give it another go against Kelly Bryant and No. 2 Clemson on Saturday.
Sorry, Jim Harbaugh: BC has the best defense in the country and it isn’t close. Now they have to prove it against Dabo Swinney and the No. 5 Clemson Tigers.
