Game Thread: Boston College vs. Virginia Tech (8:00PM, ACCN)

A.J. Black

Boston College is set to battle with the Virginia Tech Hokies, tonight at 8pm on the ACC Network. The Hokies have one of the best rushing attacks in the country, averaging over 300 yards a game. But on the other hand, their defense has suffered this year, due partially to missing players, and have allowed 37.0 points per game.  

This is where you will get all the latest updates and analysis of the game. Throughout the game I will update this article to include any notes, injury updates and analysis of the game as it happens. I will also be in the comment section to talk about the game.

This was definitely a TD - it really should be overturned

On 4th and 7, BC coverts with Galloway coming up big!

Alright, can Hafley make an adjustment to stop this VT offense?

And at least we did better than UNC’s first half - getting absolutely demolished by running joke FSU right now 31-7 at the half.

This halftime gives me a chance to order my TacShaver. Man it really does a nice job on all these guys who've already shaved with a razor.

If this were last year, I’d be switching to Alabama and Georgia, but I have faith!

The only good things going for us right now are that the first half is over and that we’re only down 10 considering 3 turnovers

BC elected to run down the clock to end the first half. Hooker and Herbert were too much for our defense. Turnovers were brutal.

Honestly it could be a lot worse. Let’s hope second half magic continues this time. But man, Dave OB sucks at commentating football.

BC can't stop VT, especially on the ground, Fuente is playing SUPER conservatively. Second drive he's done it. Tech to punt.

Finally, an offensive holding on VT

3 bed turnovers in the first half crippled us, fortunate we have a fighting chance to come back

I have a bad feeling about this game. That second VT score was way to easy

Game plan is going according to plan . Shutting down that back and the overall run. If it where not for the turnovers BC winning by 1 or 2 scores.

That was a quick answer from VT. Hooker just ran that ball down BC's throat.

Defense is making stops. 42 yard FG 3-0 advantage is a blessing. We should have had two TDs in Q1

Welcome folks! Who is ready for a battle tonight? Thanks for stopping by, and please leave your thoughts and comments below!

Levy is playing. Don’t know about DeBerry or Elijah Jones. My guess is DeBerry and Maitre are good to go, not sure about Jones because his injury seemed the most severe of the secondary last week if I remember correctly .
