Boston College looks to start 2017 2-0, plus win its home and ACC opener against Wake Forest. The Eagles held on late last week in Dekalb against Northern Illinois, and open things up at Alumni Stadium with a bit of momentum.
Redshirt freshman Anthony Brown will make his second career start at quarterback, but will have to do it without the services of senior center Jon Baker, who is out with a knee injury. In Baker's place, look for true freshman Alec Lindstrom, who enrolled early last spring, to start at center. That will give the Eagles two Lindstroms on their starting offensive line, as Alec will start next to his older brother, junior guard/tackle Chris Lindstrom.
After defeating the Demon Deacons in last season's finale to secure bowl eligibility, can Boston College start off its ACC season on the right foot against Wake this year?
