The 2015 Florida State Seminoles have one of the best running backs in College Football with sophomore Dalvin Cook. Florida State head coach Jimbo Fisher must get his team to understand that they will be in for a fight. Florida State beat Boston College 20-17 in Tallahassee, Florida last season, but it took a 66-yards drive which led to a game-winning field goal. Notre Dame transfer Everett Golson is now running the Florida State offense had has been impressive out of the gate. Golson threw for 163 yards with a touchdown in the 34-14 home victory against South Florida last Saturday. Cook is off to a great start with 422 rushing yards and five touchdowns in the first two games of the season. The Seminoles have one of the more experienced offensive lines in the ACC and they will be ready for a gritty Boston College defense. The FSU coaching staff knows they are inexperienced at the wideout position and a compensating by running the football. The Florida State defense has a ball-hawking secondary which features the best player in the ACC. FSU safety Jalen Ramsey is dominant in the passing game and just as good against the run. Boston College must recognize where he lines up on every play. Florida State better not take the Eagles lightly, especially on the road.
The Boston College Eagles have confidence coming into the ESPN showcase football game for Friday Night. Boston College beat Howard 76-0 and Maine 24-3 in the opener. Friday Night’s contest makes it three in a row at Alumni Stadium this season. The implications are huge and students have already started to tailgate. The atmosphere is going to be electric and head coach Steve Addazio will find out what his team is all about. Clearly, Boston College comes in as a lesser talented team. Addazio doesn’t mind it at all, in fact, the hard-nosed coach feeds off of hard-nosed football players. Junior quarterback Darius Wade gets his first real test of the 2015 football season. Addazio is fine with attacking the Florida State defense downhill and he has plenty of running backs to keep fresh legs on the field. The Boston College defense lacks speed but makes it up with aggressiveness. Defensive Tackle Connor Wujciak must get penetration against a stout FSU o-line. The key to a Boston College win is for the defense to contain Cook on and the running game.
The Betting Odds over the total are 4-1 the last five between the team in Chestnut Hill.
Boston College is 5-2 ATS the last seven meetings between the ACC foes.
