Boston College vs Wake Forest Game Preview

Why Boston College Will Win

Do what you do, Boston College.

There isn’t any running game to speak of, but that means the passing attack has to work. So far it’s been this simple for the Eagles – throw for 300 and win, throw for fewer than that and lose.

Wake Forest’s pass defense has only allowed over 300 yards once – the loss to Clemson – but it hasn’t faced anyone else who can throw other than Florida State.

Why Wake Forest Will Win

The Wake Forest pass rush should work.

Again, Boston College doesn’t have a rushing offense, and it’s not going to start this week. The Demon Deacons don’t have a problem against teams that can throw because they can 1) get to the quarterback and 2) throw better.

They haven’t needed to bomb away for over 300 yards to win, but they’ve been effective and efficient with Sam Hartman settling in, spreading the ball around well, and hitting on the deep shots.

It won’t take too many points to get this done – Boston College doesn’t have the firepower to keep up in any sort of a shootout.

What’s Going To Happen

Boston College will have its moments.

It’ll be a bit more of a back-and-forth fight than Wake Forest might like for three quarters, and then Hartman will get hot on the way to a quick burst to put this out of reach.

Being +3 in turnover margin will make it easier.
