Balance Is The Key To BC's Offense (via ESPN)


Last season, 43.4 percent of Boston College's first-down runs came against an eight-man front. Only Wisconsin faced eight defenders in the box more often on first down among Power 5 schools. As a result, Hilliman averaged just 3.75 yards per carry on first down -- 101st out of 118 Power 5 runners with at least 75 attempts. His 93 rushes against an eight-man front were the fourth-most among Power 5 backs.
