BC’s Best Chance to Win

BC scores 30 points or more.

Last week, the Eagles played the type of game that they need to have this Saturday. BC showed that they can still beat the teams they’re supposed to. But it may be a different story this week. Wake Forest is not Rutgers, nor are they even Kansas, and they may be better than Virginia Tech. The Demon Deacons have 533.8 yards of offense on the season and have only given up 358.3. The Eagles allowed 304 passing yards last game and while they only gave up sixteen points, they were playing Rutgers. Wake Forest will test the BC defense because they can run and throw ball effectively. This gives the BC defense an opportunity to show improvement, but if they don’t, the offense, it would appear, will have the sole responsibility of winning the game. How they will do that…running the ball is probably is their best option.

Anthony Brown is only completing 53.5% of his throws; his inconsistency likely means the running game will bear most of the offensive burden, as usual, which means the Eagles offense will be seeing a lot of eight man fronts…as usual. No matter how the Eagles do it, BC’s offense needs to get into the endzone on a regular basis until the defense proves it can make stops.
