Florida State (4-5) vs. Boston College (5-4) Game Preview

Why Florida State Will Win

Is the team going to have a new energy and a new look? It’s not like Willie Taggart was unpopular, but somehow, FSU was way too flat against Miami in an ugly loss last week. Fair or not, Taggart getting fired might have just rallied the troops.

Now there appears to be a bit of a motivational factor in place.

More than that, Florida State’s defense should be able to swarm around AJ Dillon and the Boston College running game. There’s a wee bit of a passing game in place for the Eagles without Anthony Brown, but it’s Dillon or bust.

The Seminole secondary is the problem. The run D couldn’t haven Clemson and Travis Etienne, but overall it’s only allowing 3.7 yards per carry. This defensive front is still getting into the backfield, the pass rush is there, and there’s just enough pop on offense – in surges – to break out against an Eagle defense that’s the worst in the ACC.

Why Boston College Will Win

The BC D might be having a whole slew of problems, but it’s able to generate tackles for loss, and the offense is crushing everyone on the ground.

Yeah, Florida State is going to focus on Dillon, but everyone else is trying to do that, too. Other than Clemson, no one has come close to slowing thing thing down.

NC State loaded up to stop Dillon and company – and the Eagles rumbled for 429 yards and five scores.

Syracuse was at home last week with a defense that’s great at getting behind the line – and BC ran for close to 500 yards and five touchdowns.

Dillon has been incredible – running for over 220 yards in three of the last four games – but freshman QB Dennis Grosel is having his moments, too. He took advantage of the Syracuse D and hit 8-of-10 passes averaging close to 20 yards per pass with three scores in the blowout.

He’ll get his chances against the leaky FSU secondary.

What’s Going To Happen

Florida State is going to come out and start playing great, the offense will go on a few early scoring drives, and then the Boston College offense will start hammering away.

0-3 on the road so far, FSU will start to wear down as the Eagle running game keeps on blasting away. It’ll break through in the second half to take over, but the Noles will make it interesting.

It’s desperation time for both teams in the bowl hunt – BC goes to Notre Dame and Pitt after this – with the Eagles pulling off the win on Senior Day.
