Weber State Wildcats (0-0) vs. Boston College Eagles (0-0)
Series: First meeting between BC and Weber State
Trends: BC is 2-1 all time against teams from Utah (Brigham Young three times). The Eagles also played the USS Utah in a scintillating 22-0 victory back in 1919. BC has won 18 straight games against teams from college football's lower division, a streak that dates back to 1978.
BC won 6 of 7 games at home last season, with the lone loss coming at the hands of the UNC Tar Heels. Since joining the ACC in 2005, the Eagles own a 29-5 record while playing at Alumni Stadium. BC is also 45-7 in non-conference play since 2000.
A new season of college football is finally upon us. After what seems like an excruciatingly long offseason, the Boston College Eagles football team will run out of the tunnel and onto the Alumni Stadium turf for the first time since a disappointing 31-13 loss to North Carolina in the 2009 regular season home finale. All eyes will be on Mark Herzlich as he returns to the field for the first time since the 2008 Music City Bowl.
Dave Shinskie has been named the starting QB for the Eagles, but expect to see a healthy dose of both Shinskie and fellow sophomore Mike Marscovetra under center. Another thing to keep an eye on is the performance of the Eagles underclassmen. Twelve of the 47 players on the Eagles' two-deep roster are either freshmen or redshirt freshmen. True freshman WLB Kevin Pierre-Louis is the only frosh starting for the Eagles.
