101 Days of BC Football: Ranking 2012 Schedule By Difficulty, 6-1

2 of 6

NC State is another one of those teams that will be hard to take down on their home field. The last time BC played there, they got throttled, though the Eagles managed a close, low-scoring victory at Alumni Stadium last season. The Pack had many, many opportunities to steal that one away, but the Eagles made just enough plays to pull it out of the fire.

Unless these two teams go in directions that are the complete opposites of their current trajectory, BC will probably not be the favorite in this season-finale contest. They’re playing an 8-win team from last season that may very well finish in the top half of the ACC Atlantic this year. Mike Glennon will probably have another big year, and that will help make them tough to beat, especially with the crowd behind them.
