Boston College vs. Northern Illinois Game Thread (9:30, CBSN)

NCAA Football: North Carolina State at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

Football is finally back as the Eagles head to DeKalb, Illinois for some serious Friday night #MACtion. The biggest two questions for Boston College going into this season will be the play of the quarterback (Darius Wade or Anthony Brown) and the new offensive system that has been installed by Steve Addazio and Scot Loeffler. Will it work? Or will it be more of the same. Either way, we are in for a treat, as we get another season of stud defensive end Harold Landry, who will be appearing in NFL games in 12 months. If you want to watch a player performing at the highest level, Landry is a joy to watch.
