2014 Top 6 Most Difficult Boston College Football Games
2. vs. USC (September 13)
It looked like a hard game to win last season out in Los Angeles, and it looks like a hard game now in Chestnut Hill.
Last year’s Trojans were a shell of themselves, underachieving under Lane Kiffin (and Boston College had the dubious honor of giving him his final win as Trojans head coach). Now, Steve Sarkisian is running the show, and though the coach still has a few non-believers who think USC could have done better, there is no questioning that this team has talent.
The Trojans usually do, as it is an elite program in one of the easiest places imaginable to recruit players. All of them will descend upon Alumni Stadium, and if their defensive line plays anywhere near the way it did in 2013 against Boston College, it could be a long night. More than in any other game the rest of the season, the Eagles were dominated and completely overpowered at the point of attack. These Boston College players are going to have their work cut out for them trying to turn the tables and beat USC at home.
