Boston College has possibly their most favorable matchup this weekend against old "friend" Doug Martin and his New Mexico State Aggies. Down in the gorgeous city of Las Cruces, Boston College will face arguably the worst team in all of FBS. Think of that, a team worse than UMass. But it is important for the Eagles not to look past this game, they just need to go down there and take care of business. What will BC see on Saturday afternoon? Let's take a look.
How many touchdowns can Andre Williams run for against the nation's worst run defense? Will BC let Chase Rettig throw for more, or will they just pound the ball down the Aggies throats? Can Kasim Edebali continue to build on his impressive senior year? Are three Aggie defenders enough to actually cover Alex Amidon? Will BC play a little Josh Bordner if the game gets out of hand? Does Myles Willis have a big play in him on offense or even on special teams? Will the BC secondary recover after a rough game against Virginia Tech? BC's offensive line outweighs New Mexico State by quite a bit, will Matt Patchan and Ian White be able to open bus sized holes for the running game? Steven Daniels, will he again make some big plays? Which BC wide receiver will have the biggest game on Saturday?
Can Boston College make it through this game without an injury? Will the Eagles give some of the younger kids some experience if BC starts to romp? How long will Andre Williams play for? How will New Mexico State react to BC's blitzkrieg attack on defense? How many points will BC's offense put up against a terrible defense? Can BC prevent a let down game? Can Steve Addazio use a game against New Mexico State to practice running an effective two minute drill? Without cheating can anyone on this site name a player on New Mexico State? How much will ESPN3 lag on my IPad this weekend?
What To Drink While Wasting Away In The Deserts Of New Mexico
Schraderbrau: There is nothing redeeeming about the actual state of New Mexico, and there is no beer that I've actually tried from the state I figured I would go with what has to be the best fictional beer of all time (next to Duff). Without spoiling Breaking Bad for you, this is the beer that Hank Schrader homebrews while recovering from...plot line redacted....As a huge fan of home and microbrews I have to imagine Hank's beer would be pretty delicious, even if he had trouble with the carbonation process at one point. He just gains points because his beer label is possibly the best beer label of all time and may be the best thing to come out of New Mexico real or fiction. Budweiser could package Bud Lights with this label and I would buy it just to have that happy bald Hawaiian shirt wearing DEA agent smiling at me while I get loaded on crappy beer.
Grant's Non Alcoholic Beverage Choice: Horchata. We're playing Mexico right?

Gametime Song of the Week - Method Man- Bring the Pain
A song title dedicated to what I hope Boston College unleashes on the Aggies of New Mexico State. THEY NEED TO BRING THE PAIN. Method Man first came on the scene with his Wu Tang hit C.R.E.A.M, which should be the anthem of the University of Miami football program. Hi-yo! One of the most well known members of the Wu Tang Clan, Method's music continues to sell records. One of his best albums, and one you must check out if you haven't heard it yet, was his collaboration with Redman. Just on a sidenote, I saw Wu Tang in concert a few years back during the Rock the Bells tour and they were terrible. Method Man didn't do much to win over the crowd when he got the rest of the Clan chanting "Go Yankees, Red Sox suck" and stormed off the stage. But I can't hate Method Man that much, his music just that good.
Other Music Options: Why can't we be friends? (Dan) - It's pretty much what Doug Martin should be singing when this one is over.

The BC Interruption Prediction Game:
A rough week for the editors last week as 4 out of 6 writers picked Virginia Tech. Only Jeff and Grant were able to get the pick correct, however Grant's selection of 6-2 didn't get him much love. Jeff scored big time picking a relatively safe score of 15-14, and bagging 8 points. Joe had the closest score, but selected Virginia Tech which was good for 6 points and put him in second place overall. All of the BC writers are selecting an Eagles romp this weekend, so it will all go down to how much BC can destroy the Aggies.
