Boston College's ACC Road Woes Continue At Littlejohn Coliseum

First, let me say I'm not sure how much weight I put into these stats. It's incredibly difficult to win on the road in the ACC, small sample sizes due to ACC expansion, coaching changes and all that...

But with Boston College's 77-69 loss to Clemson, the Eagles fall to 0-5 all-time at Littlejohn (and the Eastside Boyz) Coliseum. Littlejohn has been a bit of a house of horrors for BC, with the Eagles' suffering four double-digit losses. Two of those five games were 20+ point Eagle BEAT DOWNS.

The only other venue where the Eagles have had less success in the ACC is Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium. BC is 0-6 all-time at Cameron, averaging just 70 points to the Blue Devils' 87.5. No game has been decided by less than 10 points.

BC has played in only three other ACC road venues five or more times -- N.C. State's RBC Center, Virginia Tech's Cassell Coliseum and Miami's BankUnited Center. Unlike Littlejohn and Cameron, BC has had a good amount of success in the RBC Center. The Eagles are 3-2 all-time at the RBC Center, outscoring the Pack by an average 2.6 points.

The Eagles have also played their former Big East dancing partners about as close as one can on the road. BC has averaged 71.0 points to Virginia Tech's 70.9 all-time at Cassell, and been outscored 69.0-69.9 at Miami's BankUnited Center. BC is 3-5 all-time at the Cassell and 5-3 at the BankUnited nee UM Convocation Center.

For BC's remaining three ACC road games, the Eagles are surprisingly 2-1 all-time at the Dean E. Smith Center (North Carolina), 1-1 at John Paul Jones Arena (Virginia) and 5-3 at Cassell Coliseum.
