Prediction & Game Preview To Come

Ford Field, Detroit, MI, 2:30 ET, ESPN

Boston College, ACC, 6-6

The Eagles had to wait until late October to get their first ACC win in two seasons, but the victory over NC State turned into the catalyst for a good-enough finishing kick winning three of their last five games to go bowling. They’re all D, no O, and very, very sound. Get up fast, and it’s over. The Eagles have the nation’s second-worst offense averaging 288 yards per game. They play a conservative style, relying on the nasty run D and field position to get in spots to score.

Maryland, Big Ten, 6-6

The Terps are in a bowl game. Don’t get any further into it than that. This isn’t a good team – at least over the second half of the year – with too many mistakes after limiting the turnovers over the first part of the season. It’s all gravy at this point in the first year of the D.J. Durkin era – getting to a bowl was a great step.
