The Boston College defense’s journey through the last several weeks has been a harrowing ordeal. First, they were overwhelmed by the USC Trojans, a team which needed a solid offensive performance in the worst way. Then, following a bye week, they were dumptrucked by the Florida State Seminoles, a team that is flambéing everyone in their path. Most recently, the defense had two breakdowns which led to 14 points, en route to 27 allowed.
This week, they go back on the road and face a Clemson Tigers offense which, much like Florida State, is crushing its opposition. Can the Eagles keep it together or will Saturday be a long afternoon?
