The last time Boston College football started the season with a game against an ACC opponent, the Eagles didn’t have a happy ending. BC lost a heartbreaker to Georgia Tech, 17-14, in Dublin, Ireland to start the 2016 season. This year, however, with its season opener against Virginia Tech, the story was different. The Eagles…
Behind an impressive offensive first half and a defense that forced four turnovers, BC came away with its biggest season-opening win in quite some time as it knocked off visiting Virginia Tech, 35-28.
There’s a new kicker from Temple, familiar faces in the backfield, and several intriguing pieces in the receiving game—including a dynamic freshman and pair of running backs that trained at a new position.
The last scrimmage of fall camp saw Steve Addazio’s side improve in their execution, but BC was hampered by penalties at times and has two weeks to clean up before the season opener.
