Boston College (0-0) vs Colgate (0-0) Game Preview


Why Colgate Will Win

Colgate struggled in its two games this spring – losing to Lafayette and Holy Cross – but there’s enough in place to be a whole lot better.

What’s Going To Happen

Boston College will get up 21-0 fast with the passing game rocking right out of the gate. Everything will be on cruise control from there as the Eagles try to test out the ground attack.

The defense might need a few games to get the right parts in the right spots, but that’s what this game is for, along with the date against UMass to follow. It’ll look great against the Raider O in a light scrimmage of a win.
