Boston College may have "played" five games this season, but the real sample size of what this team is all about constitutes just three. Pittsburgh, USC and Colorado State make up what we should be reviewing and right now, there are still major questions around not what the identity of this team is, but what we should expect in terms of execution and results for the rest of the season.
We know a few things without issue:
- BC is 3-2 on the season and 0-1 in the ACC.
- BC is run first, run second and run third team and when they have been forced to throw, the results have been less than optimal.
- The Boston College special teams across the board have been far below average and that might be kind. The missed FG at the end of the first half vs CSU was costly in re-establishing the momentum of this game, with the Eagles ultimately losing by just that three point margin.
- BC has been unable to force turnovers, now with just four on the season.
