Boston College vs. Georgia Tech 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Bob DeChiara-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Boston College heads to Georgia Tech still looking for its first FBS win of the season.

The Boston College Eagles are still looking for their first win against an FBS school this season and after a 51-7 drubbing at Florida State. They'll stay on the road in the ACC for a Week 8 game against Georgia Tech.

The Eagles have one of the worst defenses in the country, and they've struggled stopping the run this year. Army racked up more than 500 yards on the ground utilizing a triple-option attack, one comparable to the offense that Frank Spaziani's defense will see against the Yellow Jackets.

Paul Johnson's option-heavy offense has given BC fits at times and, with the defense struggling already, it could be another high-scoring game that will force Chase Rettig and the offense to try to keep up.

The Jackets are No. 3 in the nation with an average of 331 yards per game on the ground, but they enter the week on an ugly three-game losing streak. Despite their inconsistent play recently, Georgia Tech is still a double-digit favorite.

Kickoff is set for 3 p.m. ET at Bobby Dodd Stadium, and the game will be available on ESPN3 as well as GamePlan
