Weber State. Win. Not only do we win, but we get so far ahead that we get to play walk-ons.
Kent State. Win. Another dominant performance which includes the WRs looking much better than we could have anticipated.
Virginia Tech. Loss. A tough loss as the Hokies are determined to stop our running game and we cannot contain Taylor on defense.
Notre Dame. Win. I like Brian Kelly and think the Irish will be good this year. We will just be better. (Their defense will be their Achilles all year.)
At NC State. Win. We've had some weird games in Raleigh. I still have nightmares about the Hail Mary in 2006 and in 2008 Chris Crane put together the game of his life. I don't predict any strange occurrences this year...just a BC win.
At Florida State. Loss. Florida State played spoiler in 2005 and 2007. I think they add another blemish to an otherwise great year.
Maryland. Win. Even though we have controlled the series, I am always a little fearful of Maryland. Most of the games have been close and despite the slide to the basement of the ACC, I still respect Fridge. This season is more of the same as BC wins a close one.
Clemson. Win. Spaz makes up for one of the most embarrassing games of his first season with a decisive win here.
At Wake Forest. Win. I think Wake will have a down year which makes this a real trap game. But we hold on for the win.
At Duke. Win. Duke is headed in the right direction but we still control the game for the win.
Virginia. Win. This victory clinches the division and another chance at the ACC Championship game.
At Syracuse. Win. We rest many of our key players yet still win.
This scenario has us at 10-2 and 6-2 in conference. Like my "best case" predictions, I still have us winning the division and facing Virginia Tech in the ACC Championship game. I think we beat the Hokies to go to the Orange Bowl. Like my "best case" I will say we play Texas but lose finishing a very respectable 11-3 and just outside the Top 10.
