Boston College Football: How Our Remaining Opponents Did


Do bye weeks bore you? Me too.

At least there was football to watch. The Eagles have nine remaining opponents to face in 2013, and here’s how they did in Week 4.

Clemson 26, NC State 14

Degenerate gamblers will be upset that NC State clearly played for the cover in the fourth quarter. There are no degenerate gamblers here, however, and all that we noticed is that Clemson managed just 26 points.

Georgia Tech 28, North Carolina 20

Future opponent North Carolina scored in the second quarter to go ahead, 20-7, and then did not score again. The Heels offense got the week off with less than 20 minutes of time of possession.

Virginia Tech 29, Marshall 21 (3OT)

Virginia Tech did basically everything possible to lose this game late, with the problem being that Marshall did, too. The Hokies will take the 3-1 record, but admittedly they’re not a great 3-1.

Wake Forest 25, Army 11

If Wake Forest can beat Army at Michie Stadium, what excuse do the Eagles have this year at Alumni Stadium?

Syracuse 52, Tulane 17

The Orange putting up big points with their new quarterback no es bueno. Many thanks to Syracuse for distantly avoiding a #goacc moment by annihilating Tulane, though.

Maryland 37, West Virginia 0

Yeah, Maryland looking much better is going to be a problem for us. This West Virginia team isn’t good, but last year’s West Virginia was also blah and they beat the Terps. They’re a team to watch.

Florida State 54, Bethune-Cookman 6

It was closer than I thought it was going to be.

UCLA A lot, New Mexico State not much

Hardly unexpected, and who cares.
