The Boston College Eagles fell to 1-6 on the season after getting dominated by Georgia Tech 37-17 on Saturday. The Eagles had no answer for the Yellow Jackets offense, giving up 563 yards, 391 of which were on the ground. Boston College only held the ball for 16 minutes on offense, as they went 1 for 9 on 3rd down conversions. Meanwhile, QB Washington and RB Laskey combined for 164 yards rushing and two touchdowns against the Eagle defense. The defense has had trouble stopping the run all year and this was a terrible match-up as Georgia Tech lives off their option attack. Offensively, the Eagles couldn’t get in any type of a rhythm and they also turned the ball over twice. QB Chase Rettig didn’t get going until late in the game, finishing with 264 yards and two touchdowns. Rettig has thrown for 1,917 yards and 13 touchdowns this year and is averaging over 273 yards per game. The biggest receiving threat was WR Amidon, who finished with 7 catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. The offense only managed 32 yards rushing and RB Williams carried the ball 11 times for 51 yards. It won’t get any easier for the Boston College offense as they welcome a strong Terps defense into to town this weekend. This was the Eagles fifth loss in a row, and they have yet to earn a win over an FBS school this season. If Coach Spaziani wasn’t on the hot seat yet, he definitely is now, and it may be inevitable that Spaziani is gone at the end of the year.
Maryland has played well this year, led by a stingy defense. The loss of their starting quarterback may hurt a little, but they have a capable backup and some great playmakers on offense. Boston College is a disaster, the defense can’t stop the run and the offense looks stagnant at times. I have to go with Maryland in this one.
