The Boston College Eagles will try to break a two-game losing streak in Week 6 against Army. After falling at home in conference play, Frank Spaziani's team will now hit the road for a non-conference game at Michie Stadium. The BC offense has been much improved through the first month of the season, with Chase Rettig holding a 134.8 quarterback rating. The BC passing game is averaging 330 yard per game, which is 11th best in all of FBS. It's a stark contrast from the turmoil last year, but the rushing attack is currently one of the worst in the country.
Sapziani's defense was also gashed in the month of September, surrendering 45 points to a Clemson offense last week. It translated to a 1-3 record, with the only victory coming against FCS Maine. If Spaziani and the Eagles want to hold out any hope, however slight, of a bowl appearance, they have to pick up a win over Army. BC is favored by 9.5 points on the road. It's a must-win before they head to Tallahassee next week.
Kickoff is scheduled for Noon ET and CBS Sports Network will carry the broadcast.
