The Eagles rolled past Miami behind an impressive defensive effort and a big night from A.J. Dillon in his return from injury, setting the stage for a pivotal stretch of games against tough conference opponents.
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 looked vulnerable for the first time as a starter, Anthony Brown threw four interceptions, and the entire BC team—both offense and defense—was given a reality check in West Lafayette, Ind.
The Eagles are ranked for the first time in a decade, but head coach Steve Addazio and his players aren’t drinking the Kool-Aid—right now, the focus is on Purdue.
Martin Jarmond added another Big Ten opponent to BC’s future schedule. The Eagles will face off against Michigan State in a home-and-home series during the 2024 and 2025 seasons.
The Eagles will fly to West Lafayette, Ind. on Sept. 22, 2018, before welcoming the Boilermakers on Sept. 26, 2020.
