"We shot ourselves in the foot,’’ said Spaziani, who had to reconfigure his defense on the fly when starting cornerback C.J. Jones went down with an injury to his left foot on the opening kickoff. "We didn’t run enough plays. Not being able to do anything on offense had us back on our heels. They wore us out on defense.’’

"I’m not going to disparage what Central Florida did. They played well," Eagles coach Frank Spaziani said. "But you have to do better than 1-for-12 (on third downs)."

This isn't an offensive problem, or a defensive problem. It's a team problem. And right now, Boston College simply isn't very good. The Eagles are off to an 0-2 start, and while it's still early, the reality of the situation is that their bowl chances have already taken a big hit. This is supposed to be the easy part of the schedule. Virginia Tech, Florida State, Notre Dame, Miami ... that's the second half of the season.

"I think they played very well as a team," UCF coach George O'Leary said of his players, noting he complimented them after the victory for beating the Eagles in every phase of the game. "Complemented each other very well. Good, very good team win and a great win for UCF."

"Did you see that, Big East? Did you see what UCF just did to the school that used to be one of your marquee teams? Did you see what UCF did to the program that abandoned you six years ago to go to the ACC? Did you see what UCF did to Boston College Saturday night? The program that can't wait to get into the Big East physically beat up and bullied the program that couldn't wait to get out of the Big East."

6. Boston College (0-2) - That defense can only do so much when the offense struggles like they have been this season. From Montel Harris to losing their top receiver for the season, injuries will unfortunately be the story of the 2011 Eagles.

"There’s not a day that goes by that we don’t think about Welles in one way or another. But each year as we approach 9/11, it just becomes more public," said Paige, who was a guest, along with Honor, of BC athletic director Gene DeFilippo. "The outpouring of respect for Welles means a lot to us and I think it really helps us get through it."
