In 2010, the Eagles rattled off five straight wins to end the regular season (Clemson, @ Wake, @ Duke, Virginia, @ Syracuse). Last year BC won four straight November games (Virginia Tech, @ N.M. State, N.C. State, @ Maryland). Addazio is 5-1 as Eagles head coach in the month of November. Since the start of ACC play, BC is 22-16 in conference home games.
