BC UPSETS FSU IN TALLAHASSEE
ESPN seems to be blaming the suspension of 5 Seminole receivers for their 27-17 loss to Boston College. There's no doubt that their absence was a detriment to Bobby Bowden's squad, and the incident was a distraction to their teammates. However, that's what happens when you recruit players based on athleticism alone.
Boston College seems to have found their ground game. Jacksonville native and true freshman Montel Harris ran for 121 yards and a score against the team he wanted to play for growing up. He's averaging 5.4 yards per carry this season, and the future looks bright for him and for the Eagles.
Believe it or not, BC still controls their own destiny. They travel to Winston-Salem and play Wake Forest next Saturday. If they win there, and beat Maryland at home on the 29th, they go to the ACC Championship Game.
At the very least, their victory over Florida State has saved the Eagles from a bowl game in Boise.
