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

5 of 7

9.) vs. Wake Forest
October 1, 2011 | Week 5 | Chestnut Hill, MA

Wake is another one of those three-win teams that spooked BC a little bit last year but the Eagles went on to win in their building. Now, they play in Alumni Stadium and the Eagles will probably be a favorite here as well. I’m not sure it’s possible for the Deacs to be any worse than they were last year, and let’s face it, they were utterly abysmal in two major sports, but they can probably give the Eagles a run for their money like they did at home in 2010. The probability of an Eagles win here is good, at least relative to some of the other teams they’re going to play. Wake will probably not be very good this year, either.
