BC’s Best Chance to Win

Eagles need to find some way to get their passing game going.

Due to their defensive woes this season, BC has had to lean on their offense to outscore their opponents. They’ve done through the ground game, rushing for 268.2 yards a game this season. Running the football will be very difficult against a Pitt defense that is only allowing 92.6 rushing yards per game.

Yet, the Eagles will still have to find a way to score points. Especially given that Pitt’s offensive runs through quarterback Kenny Pickett and newly healthy, wide receiver Taysir Mack. The Panthers average 247.1 passing yards while the Eagles are giving up 297.5 yards through the air. That puts the pressure on Dennis Grosel and the offense to find some way to get their passing attack going if they want to keep pace with Pitt. The Eagles have the weapons in the form of Kobay White and Zay Flowers, but they have struggled to establish a consistent pass game. Doing that may be BC’s best and only chance to knock off the Panthers.
