It’s safe to say it as the sample size has certainly been big enough: Boston College’s defense is having a fine season. Things may not be air-tight all the time, but the body of work has been more than adequate.

This week, the Eagles are to face the Syracuse offense, which has been anything but productive most of the time. Only twice have they broken 30 points, and eight times they have scored 20 or less. Up against the Boston College defense, will it be another slow day for the Orange?
