ACC football bowl predictions: Florida State will capture its first national title since 1999 (

Boston College vs. Arizona, Dec. 31, 12:30 p.m. (AdvoCare V100 Bowl, ESPN): Expect running. Lots of running. Boston College has Heisman finalist Andre Williams, while Arizona features Ka'Deem Carey. Those two running backs ranked 1-2 nationally in yards per game. Arizona 38-28.

Williams will get another chance to leave a final impression. The senior left the Eagles' regular-season finale at Syracuse, a game they ended up losing, with a shoulder injury, but he is expected to be fine by the time his team takes the field in Shreveport, La. The early exit -- nine carries for 29 yards -- likely cost him whatever extra votes he could have picked up in the Heisman Trophy race, but now he'll have a chance to further improve his draft stock.

Boston College (10-4-2, 6-1-1) Grade: B.

The Eagles are very young and also very talented. The biggest question mark going into the season was goaltending. Junior Brian Billett (right) and freshman Thatcher Demko have answered the bell, however. The young forwards and defensemen have contributed and no doubt will play a bigger role in the second half, although they will be short-staffed because of the World Junior Tournament. Johnny Gaudreau continues to dazzle.
