The Boston College Eagles will look to shock the deflated Florida State Seminoles as they head to Tallahassee for a Saturday night clash.
The Seminoles, coming off a crushing loss to North Carolina State last Saturday night that likely removed them from the national championship conversation, will have to regroup against an in-conference foe hungry to get their first ACC victory of the season.
Boston College is also looking to rebound after a disappointing loss a weekend ago, when they were downed by Army, 34-31. The week before, they were embarrassed at home by Clemson, 45-31.
While the Seminoles are heavy favorites to win, it may be more about how Jimbo Fisher's team responds one week after a season-shifting loss. Do they plod along against an inferior opponent, or step on the gas early and refuse to let up?
At the very least, their secondary will need to keep the Eagles' Chase Rettig honest, as the quarterback leads the ACC with 305.2 passing yards per game with 10 touchdown passes thrown.
