Boston College Eagles
With three wins and four losses in the conference, this has been a successful season for Boston College. The Eagles have big wins at Louisville and against Florida State. They won big at UVA in between those two so by the time they rolled into NC State last weekend, the nationally-ranked Wolfpack knew it had a big game at its place.
It was close, but NC State escaped by a field goal. Boston College proved just a little more that it is indeed a formidable opponent. But some bad injury news has put a damper on the end of the season.
Anthony Brown had a fine first season at quarterback as a redshirt freshman. Unfortunately, that season is over. Brown suffered a non contact leg injury and will be out for the rest of the year. He should be back for the start of next season, according to Head Coach Steve Addazio.
Darius Wade has thrown 40 passes this season and will make his first start on Saturday. So the Eagles will lean even a little heavier on a running game that has already surpassed 2000 yards as a unit with two games to play.
UConn has been hit hard in its last three games. First, came a 40-point loss to the SEC Mizzou Tigers; after that, a 17-point loss to South Florida; and then a 25-point shellacking at Central Florida.
The Huskies have finished up their home schedule. This game is at a neutral site, Fenway Park, that will only give BC a small advantage, if any. It will be a fun atmosphere with both sides well represented.
Senior quarterback Bryant Shirreffs has set a new career-high with over 2200 yards passing. He will almost surely exceed 2500 when this season is all over.
Shirreffs’ season has been his best all across the board. But it hasn’t translated into wins for the 3–7 Huskies. UConn has been beaten up in the American Athletic, it’s only two wins coming against Temple and Tulsa. Cincinnati is a winnable game in the final week of the season but UConn comes into Fenway Park a big underdog against the Eagles.

I’m concerned about BC losing some mojo without its quarterback. The oddsmakers don’t think so, as the Eagles are comfortable three-touchdown favorites but that seems like a big number to set for a team with some questions ahead of this one.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Connecticut +21.5
I’m not going to call for an upset but I’m partial to taking the points here in a skeptical situation.
