Freese, a Lou Groza Award candidate who ranks fifth in the nation with an active career field goal percentage of .836 (56 of 67), embraced the challenge off handling both duties this season after the departure of last year’s starting punter, Gerald Levano.

Now it's your turn, BC! Not to take away from the Eagles' nice win over Army, but it's time for them to face the buzzsaw that is the Clemson offense. For as well as Boston College has run the ball of late, I don't see how they can keep up with the Tigers for very long in this one, especially down in Death Valley.
