BC's real schedule opens up on Friday, who will be playing

Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The Eagles got the luxury of sitting most of their starters for most of the game against Howard. Not much has changed since last week, but let's take a look:

LT

74 Dave Bowen 6-7 289 Sr.
73 Sam Schmal 6-6 294 R-Fr.

LG

77 Jon Baker 6-3 293 So.
54 Joel Rich 6-3 282 So

C

50 Frank Taylor 6-3 289 Jr.
69 Austin Stevens 6-3 270 R-Fr.

RG

64 Harris Williams 6-3 296 Sr.
75 Chris Lindstrom 6-4 260 Fr.

RT

72 Jim Cashman 6-7 302 Jr.
58 James Hendren 6-7 293 R-Fr.

The front five again remains the same for Boston College. They are going to have their hands full with the Seminoles, who bring the 36th ranked defense in the country. Florida State is 51st in the country in sacks, racking up 4 through their first two games.

Y Back

81 Louie Addazio 6-3 252 Sr. 
89 Tommy Sweeney 6-5 246 R-Fr.
87 Austin Chapman 6-3 232 So.

Tommy Sweeney got some solid playing time last Saturday and looked pretty decent with his hands, which could give BC a threat at this position. However, if the offensive line struggles, or if Addazio wants to run the ball efficiently, he probably will stick with his son Louie through most of the game.

QB

4 Darius Wade 6-0 204 So.
Jeff Smith 6-1 182 Fr.
or 16 Troy Flutie 6-0 182 R-Fr.

All three quarterbacks got a chance to play against Howard, and all three looked good. Flutie spun some nice passes around the field, Jeff Smith looked really elusive, and Wade made good reads and good passes. I have to wonder if Jeff Smith is going to play a role in this game. If Addazio wants to pull all the stops out against FSU and give the Noles something else to account for, I wonder if he will use Smith on a few drives. Not saying it's going to happen, but I certainly wouldn't rule it out.

RB

32 Jon Hilliman 6-0 224 So. or
23 Myles Willis 5-9 194 Jr.
35 Tyler Rouse 5-8 194 Jr. or
7 Marcus Outlow 5-10 203 So.

36 Bobby Wolford 6-2 248 Sr.
38 Richard Wilson 5-10 224 R-Fr.

Jon Hilliman didn't really have to do much of anything on Saturday, and Tyler Rouse again was the primary back for most of the game. Richard Wilson had a nice game as well, and certainly will be part of the game plan in the future. He looks like a multi-faceted full back. Marcus Outlow will continue to be that X-Factor, a player that can catch plays. He had a big game against FSU last year, when he rushed 12 times for 61 yards.

WR1

18 Thadd Smith 5-9 175 So. 
83 Charlie Callinan 6-4 220 So. or
84 Elijah Robinson 6-2 185 Fr.

WR2

6 Sherman Alston 5-6 163 So. 
80 Drew Barksdale 5-11 195 So.
37 Michael Walker 6-0 195 Fr.

WR3
26 David Dudeck 5-11 194 Sr.
10 Bobby Swigert 6-0 199 Sr.

Loads of Eagles got involved on Saturday against Howard. Harrison Jackson, fresh off a knee injury, made a fantastic catch, and could give BC a reliable target if he can stay healthy. Bobby Swigert sat out against the Bison, but should be ready to go on Friday night.

DE

8 Harold Landry 6-3 245 So. or
45 Mehdi Abdesmad 6-7 286 Sr. 
Zach Allen 6-5 265 Fr.

T

97 Truman Gutapfel 6-3 281 Jr.
96 Ray Smith 6-1 264 Fr. or
94 Noa Merritt 6-0 268 So.

N

90 Connor Wujciak 6-3 304 Sr.
99 Evan Kelly 6-1 285 Gr.

DE

93 Kevin Kavalec 6-2 256 So or
45 Mehdi Abdesmad 6-7 286 Sr. 
87 Malachi Moore 6-4 274 Jr. or
11 Wyatt Ray 6-3 230 Fr

The interior of this defense was electric against Howard, but their work will be cut out for them against the Seminoles, who are clearly a whole different beast than the previous FCS squads. However, FSU has struggled to keep Everett Golson upright, as he has been sacked 5 times over the past two games.

SLB

28 Matt Milano 6-1 218 Jr.
49 Kevin Bletzer 6-2 217 R-Fr.
43 Sherriff Grice 6-1 201 Fr.

MLB

52 Steven Daniels 6-0 257 Sr.
13 Connor Strachan 6-2 230 So.

WLB

44 Ty Schwab 6-1 222 So.
30 Mike Strizak 6-2 239

Connor Strachan set the pace for the Eagles on Saturday when he returned an interception to the house. He looks like he's going to be the real deal. Steven Daniels is going to be the key against Dalvin Cook, one of the nation's best running backs. This matchup is going to be fun: FSU has the 17th ranked rushing offense, and BC's rushing defense has put up absurd numbers—albeit it against FCS squads.

LC
5 Kamrin Moore 5-11 192 So.
29 Atem Ntantang 5-11 193 So.
15 Taj-Amir Torres 5-10 170 Fr.

SS 
9 John Johnson 6-0 198 Jr.
41 William Harris 6-2 193 So.

FS 
27 Justin Simmons 6-3 198 Sr.
17 Christian Lezzer 6-0 215 So.

RC 
20 Isaac Yiadom 6-1 184 So.
14 Gabriel McClary 6-3 204 So.
21 Lukas Denis 5-11 170

This crew did not have much on their plate last weekend as Howard only attempted seven passes. They will face their first test on Friday, as the 44th ranked FSU passing offense, along comes to the Heights.


42 Alex Howell 6-5 214 Sr.
99 Colton Lichtenberg 5-10 175 Fr. or
98 Mike Knoll 6-0 207 So.


42 Alex Howell 6-5 214 Sr.
98 Mike Knoll 6-0 207 So.


53 Leonard Skubal 5-10 193 Jr.
46 Jimmy Martin 5-11 220 Fr.

H
10 Bobby Swigert 6-0 199 Sr.

PR 
6 Sherman Alston 5-6 163 So.
85 Thadd Smith 5-9 175 So.

KR
23 Myles Willis 5-9 194 Jr
6 Sherman Alston 5-6 163 So

BC had 11 touchdowns on Saturday, and BC kickers went 10-10 on XP's, so that was a positive. Also Addazio put an emphasis on not allowing punts to hit the ground, and there was solid progress there as both Sherm Alston and Michael Walker had big returns.
