Bostoncollege_medium vs. Uva_medium

Boston College Eagles (6-3, 3-2 ACC) at Virginia Cavaliers (3-6, 2-3 ACC)

Time: 3:30 EDT
Date: Saturday, Nov. 14, 2009
Place: David A. Harrison Field at Scott Stadium (capacity 61,500), Charlottesville, Va.
TV: Nope. Only the internets.
Spread: Boston College -4
Weather: Mostly cloudly, light winds, chance of rain 20%. High 66 degrees

Series: Boston College leads 3-0
Last Meeting: Boston College 31, Central Michigan 24 (Oct. 8, 2005)
Last Meeting at Virginia: First ever meeting between the two teams in Charlottesville

Trends: Since the beginning of the 2007 season, the Eagles are only 9-8 in their last 17 road/neutral games. Over that same time period, Virginia is only 10-8 at home. The Cavs are 1-4 at home this season including losses to William & Mary and Duke.

The Eagles travel to Charlottesville for their first ever trip to Scott Stadium to take on the 3-6 Virginia Cavaliers. BC needs a win to keep pace with Clemson in the Atlantic Division standings. Montel Harris looks to have a big day on the ground as the Virginia defense ranks 10th in the ACC in rushing defense. BC is favored in this one despite being winless on the road this season.

Use this post to discuss the game, heckle Clemson (at NC State) and the rest of the weekend's college football action.

Go Eagles!
