Georgia Tech 17 Boston College 14: By The Numbers

Here is the look at the numbers from yesterday’s loss to Georgia Tech

NCAA Football: Georgia Tech at Boston College Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

Numbers sometimes tell stories that emotion and frustration can’t. Other times they confirm exactly what we saw with our own eyes. Here are some of the numbers from yesterday’s game:

176: The numbers of yards passing, and the number of yards rushing. Addazio wanted to have a more balanced attack. He got just that.

15: First downs in the game by BC.

7: Penalties by the Eagles.

0: Kickoff return average for BC. (Every kickoff was a touchback)

6.0: Rushing average for Jonathan Hilliman, who returned to the Eagles with 103 yards in his first game back

2.8: Yards per carry Georgia Tech averaged against last year’s premier rushing defense

2.8: Taking out the Hilliman run, what BC averaged per run on all their other rushes.

64.7%: Patrick Towles Completion Percentage during his first game with the Eagles

92: Receiving yards by Charlie Callinan, the games leading receiver

83: Where our offense ranks nationally after week one (minus the Texas/ND game)

8: Tackles for Connor Strachan, leading the game. Along with 4 tackles for loss.

30:18 time of possession for Georgia Tech/29:42 time of possession for BC
