Broadcast, TV, Game Time
Date: Saturday, Sept. 23rd
Game Time: 3:30 pm ET
Venue: Memorial Stadium, Clemson, SC
Alright, Boston College. If you have any bright ideas, now is the time to bust them out.
The Eagles should probably be 0-3 right now, escaping Northern Illinois by the skin of their teeth before getting blown away by Wake Forest and Notre Dame.
The new offensive style isn’t working, the running game has died, and the once-amazing defense hasn’t shown up yet.
But everything else is fine.
Clemson keeps rolling right along, dominating an overrated Louisville team carried by one magnificent player, but the tests just keep on coming with a trip to Virginia Tech and date with Wake Forest after this.
Keep the machine going. The Tigers can do that.
One Reason Why Clemson Will Win
Boston College has forgotten how to be Boston College.
The run defense that used to be a brick wall is getting destroyed, giving up 279 yards per game.
The offense that wasn’t potent, but was at least careful, can’t stop screwing up with eight turnovers, and without a passing game to pick up the slack when there’s a problem.
There’s absolutely no downfield passing game for Clemson to worry about. The defensive front can load up, keep everything short, and not deal with anything going over the top.
One Reason Why Boston College Will Win
Okay, Boston College. What do you have on this ship that works?
The offensive line might not be plowing away for big rushing yards, but the pass protection has been stellar so far.
The secondary hasn’t been too bad, the special teams have been fine, and there haven’t been a whole slew of dumb penalties.
It’s going to take a few big kick and punt returns, and an unfocused effort by a Tiger team that’s due for a bit of a letdown – Clemson will have to beat itself.
What’s Going To Happen
Clemson will finally be a wee bit sluggish, and Boston College will finally be a wee bit okay.
For a quarter.
Eventually, the Tigers will wake up and start getting the offense rolling like it’s supposed to, helped by a dominant two series from the defensive front that’ll flip the momentum of the game.
The Eagles won’t move the ball a lick in the second half.
