Ranking the 2011 BC football schedule by difficulty, 12th-7th

4 of 7

10.) vs. Duke
September 17, 2011 | Week 3 | Chestnut Hill, MA

The Eagles had a big scare against the Blue Devils last year, but that was then and this is now. Duke is coming off of a three-win season and this is a road game for them. BC usually defends their home turf (though last year they dropped a few clunkers), and the last time they played the Blue Devils at home, they beat them handily (but that was then and this is now, huh). It’s way too early to forecast these kinds of things, and a month in advance, I can’t guarantee any level of accuracy, but the Eagles will probably be favorites on the order of a touchdown (-7) or something to that effect.
