Led by the Mountain West Offensive Player of the Year in quarterback Brett Rypien and star linebacker Curtis Weaver, the Broncos will pose quite the challenge for BC.
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.
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.
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.
Virginia Tech suffered one of the worst losses in school history, BC dropped the ball against Purdue, and Louisville reached a new low at UVA, practically making everyone rethink the conference’s power structure.
Virginia Tech embarrassed the Seminoles in Tallahassee, and BC shelled Massachusetts—meanwhile, teams like Miami and Louisville found themselves on the other side of things, limping out of the gates to a shaky start.
