ACC Top Letdown Games for Every Team: 2022 College Football Season

Boston College Eagles

Duke, November 4: The Eagles are in for several tough games over the first half of the season, but they get a bit of a break in the second half. They can’t let up their guard against Duke with showdowns against NC State and at Notre Dame to follow.
