Saturday will be a big moment for Boston College football, as Jeff Hafley, Phil Jurkovec and others will play in front of the home town crowd for the first time. This is also's BC first home crowd since 2019, meaning that the crowd could be energized, even if this is an FCS squad. This game has some extra meaning for BC defensive coordinator Tem Lukabu, who played linebacker for Colgate in college.
Colgate is a team in transition, after moving on from their head coach back in May. Stan Dakotsky, a young up and comer replaces Dan Hunt, and will look to make his mark against a dangerous ACC squad on Saturday. The Raiders are led by quarterback Grant Breneman who threw for 419 yards (0 touchdowns and 5 ints), and rushed for 90 yards and 1 touchdown.
The key to this game for the Eagles will be to keep the plan as vanilla as possible, to avoid putting anything on tape for future opponents, while keeping their starters healthy.
