For the last six years, a flawed offensive strategy and inattention to special teams has made it much more difficult than it should be for BC to win games.
As soon as Clemson won the 2017 National Championship, the ACC was pronounced the best conference in college football. Since then, the league has been on the decline—and it might have just hit rock bottom this past weekend.
A.J. Dillon can put up Heisman-like numbers, and BC’s defense can rank among the best in the ACC, but, at the end of the day, the team’s season rests in the hands of redshirt sophomore Anthony Brown.
Clemson, Miami, and Virginia Tech all lost their starting quarterbacks to the NFL last year. Most expected the programs to regress. But after three weeks of play, it’s safe to say they’re the ones standing atop the ACC.
Harold Landry had a big night, but the rest of the BC defense struggled against Heisman contender Deshaun Watson in a 56-10 blowout loss.

Penalties aside, the Eagles were simply outmatched, outmanned, and outsmarted by the one of the country’s top teams, the No. 5 (and rising) Clemson Tigers.
