Boston College Opens as Double Digit Dog Hosting Virginia Tech

NCAA Football: Central Michigan at Boston College Brian Fluharty-USA TODAY Sports

Boston College has opened as a 16.5 point underdog against Virginia Tech this weekend. It is the largest that BC has been a dog at home since being a 25 point underdog against Lamar Jackson and Louisville last year.

The 16.5 point line is quite a jump from the line against the Hokies in the last five meetings which was 6, 2, 3, 4 and 9. This is the largest spread of this series 2011, when BC was a 21 point dog at Virginia Tech. It also represents the largest underdog that BC has been while playing the game at home.

BC is just 1-9 in its last 10 games at home against the ACC at Alumni Stadium.
