Boston College football floundered offensively in the first half, and allowed too many big plays on defense to prevent No. 3 Clemson from running away with a victory.
Connor Strachan piled up 2.5 sacks against the Minutemen, including a strip sack and a fumble recovery, in a 26-7 win.
Aggressive, disciplined, together, unselfish, confident. That’s how Boston College’s defense is staying on top.
Quarterback issues aside, BC football needs to revive its power run game, which struggled last week.
One week after putting up 76 points against Howard, Jon Hilliman and the Eagles disappeared on the offensive side of the ball in a 14-0 shutout by the Seminoles. To make matters worse for BC, Darius Wade will miss the remainder of the season with a broken left ankle.
Whether it was missing a tackle in the end zone or failing to recover a muffed punt, BC failed to capitalize on its chances in a shutout loss to Florida State.
