ACC Football Week 13: Tantalizing
Imagery of Lucy taking the football away from Charlie Brown comes to mind, except Charlie Brown made the kick, and it went wide right.
Boston College started their final real drive of the game at their own eight and marched deep into Florida State territory, only for the Eagles to botch their final series and miss what would have been the go-ahead field goal off of the foot of Alex Howell.
Then, predictably, Florida State drove for the game winning score minutes later.
The Eagles gave Florida State a good game, but no moral victories here. Boston College could have won but they let it slip away. This team is on the rise, but they are not there yet.
As for Florida State, their black magic juju will eventually run out, but give them props for their 27th win in a row.
