After Further Review: TomRob's updated Boston College preview (Chant Rant)
"As for this particular game, unless FSU is simply looking past BC, I can't see this being a very competitive game. The Eagles are fairly awful on offense and I just don't see them putting up many points. If they can run the ball and shorten the game, that helps their chances, but I just don't see BC scoring more than 10-20 points at best. As solid as the BC defense is, I can't imagine them holding the FSU offense to less than 24 points. I'm thinking a 31-10 type score in FSU's favor is probably in the cards."

It's a mad, mad season so far (ESPN's Pat Forde)
Pat Forde going out on a limb here. He's not a believer in BC. "Streak in Jeopardy: Eleven straight winning seasons by Boston College (34). The Eagles are 2-3, with both wins over tomato cans and all three losses by at least 18 points. Even in a lackluster ACC, it's hard to find five more victories."

Picks at the Wire: Week 7 (D1scourse)
"In the recent past, this would have been a perfect opportunity for Florida State to stumble. But with three conference victories in a row and the chance to head into the bye week halfway to the ACC's first 8-0 league record, look for the Seminoles to dispatch the offensively challenged Eagles."
