at Nothern Illinois. Win. The D looks tremendous and creates all sorts of turnovers. BC's QB situation still seems a bit unsettled, but the OLine creates big holes for the running backs.
Wake Forest. Win. This is a good matchup for BC. BC gets to the QB all day. The passing game looks okay, but BC's deep and talented RBs remain the stars.
Notre Dame. Win. Needless to say, this is a big game and a big win for Addazio. The 3-0 start earns BC some votes in the polls.
at Clemson. Loss. Both teams are undefeated and it gets a primetime slot on ESPN. The game is low scoring, but BC cannot move the ball against an elite D.
Central Michigan. Win. Another relatively easy game. BC's OL and DL control the game.
Virginia Tech. Win. A huge confidence builder. This proves the hot start was legit. With the win, BC is ranked.
at Louisville. Loss. The Cardinals tear up BC's top D. This is the worst we look all year.
at Virginia. Win. I just don't expect much from UVA this year. I think BC controls throughout.
Florida State. Loss. A real letdown in front of a solid Friday night crowd.
NC State. Win. As I have mentioned, I don't get the NC State hype. I think we win this game with ease.
UConn (at Fenway). Win. We just run on UConn all day. This is fun to watch.
at Syracuse. Win. This is very close, but BC holds on in the end.
This would leave BC 9-3 (5-3 in the ACC). Clearly not among the elite of the ACC, but it would show that Addazio can compete when he has his players. Because we still don't sell tickets, I think we end up in the Sun Bowl against Oregon. BC wins that to finish 10-3 and just outside the top 10.
