BC is on a four-game winning streak and has already set the program’s single-season record for ACC wins, but the question is whether it’s too late for a tournament push.
Dennis Grosel and AJ Dillon impressed, but BC’s defense once again struggled to tackle in a loss to Florida State on Saturday.
To reach six wins and bowl eligibility, BC will have to navigate the sixth-toughest rest of season schedule—which features four of five games away from home.
After one week of ACC action, one thing is clear: No. 1 Clemson is heads and shoulders above the rest of the conference, while the likes of Syracuse, Virginia, and North Carolina follow.
The Eagles struggled mightily against No. 1 Florida State, as the Seminoles held BC scoreless the entire weekend and swept BC in Tallahassee.
After winning their first conference game of the season against Virginia Tech, BC was unable to replicate its success against No. 15 FSU in a dramatic 4-3 setback.
Last season, BC went 7-11 in ACC play. A finish similar to that in 2018—which an 0-4 start was less than promising—would be a letdown for head coach Jim Christian’s bunch.
