BC hosted College GameDay last Saturday for the first time since 2009, and—despite the loss to No. 2 Clemson—the excitement surrounding the program rivaled that of decade’s past.
During his Monday weekly press conference, head coach Steve Addazio told reporters that both Anthony Brown and A.J. Dillon are day-to-day, heading into Week 12.
Michael Walker returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Eagles managed just 113 total yards of offense and eight first downs in a dismal performance against the Tigers and their excellent defensive line.
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.
Anthony Brown was ruled out with an undisclosed injury after taking a hard fall on BC’s opening drive of its Saturday night game against No. 2 Clemson.
According to head coach Steve Addazio, the 2018 Tigers—currently ranked No. 2 in the nation—might just be the best team he’s ever seen in his coaching career, at the very least since he’s taken over at BC.
The Eagles are playing their best football at the right time, and their last two wins over traditional ACC powerhouses show that they deserve the spotlight of College GameDay
Despite missing opportunities in the first half, BC used a breakout game from Travis Levy and a strong second-half defensive effort to score 21 unanswered points and down the Hokies on the road.
Trailing by a touchdown at the break, the Eagles’ defense responded by only allowing 147 yards and seven points in the second half, setting the stage for BC’s first win over Virginia Tech in four years.
BC has lost eight of its last 10 meetings with Virginia Tech, including three straight. Now ranked No. 24 in the nation, the Eagles will need to beat their Coastal Division foe on the road to keep their ACC title hopes alive.
