On one hand, you have an Eagles team that is trying to get back on track again, and attempting to get within one win of bowl eligibility for a second-straight season. Meanwhile, the home team has had some decent defensive efforts wasted by their completely listless offense, which at this point looks like it would have issues against a D-II school.

Boston College at Wake Forest: 5 Big Questions — #5
Is this game a must-win for Boston College?
Well of course it is.
This is the most winnable game Boston College has left and is one of the only two games in which they will be favored for the rest of the way. Save for a miracle, unless the Eagles pull an upset or two along the way, there will be no bowl game if they do not beat Wake Forest.
In fact, if they cannot beat Wake, they probably do not deserve to be at a bowl game, but that’s another matter.
Boston College is a double-digit favorite, despite being on the road. This one is on a tee for them. The Eagles need this win. Period.
