The MAC will go head to head with the ACC this Saturday when the Buffalo Bulls square of against the Boston College Eagles in Boston. Buffalo is coming off of an overtime victory against Army last week that they were able to win 23-20.
The Boston College Eagles are at .500 for the season and beat up on Wagner last week 42-10. These two teams have not played one another since 2006 when the Eagles handed a loss to the Bulls 41-0.
They are favored to win by 17.5 points this weekend and look to build some momentum on the offensive side of the ball.
Boston College Eagles
Boston College only managed to win a total of 3 games last year.
They haven’t exactly looked sharp so far in 2016, despite the fact that they had 15 starters return from last season.
They lost their opening game of the season by three points to Georgia Tech, but were able to rough up UMASS 26-7 in week 2.
They were shut out 49-0 against Virginia Tech, but were able to bounce back and get a much needed win against Wagner last week.
While offense has been a struggle so far this season for the Eagles, they come into this weeks game ranked 6th in the country for total yards allowed on defense, only giving up 235.8 yards per game.
Their defense will be their strength again this season while their offense tries to do enough to give them a shot to win some games.
They are 35th in the country allowing 20.8 points per contest.
After just a 5-7 record last season, the Bulls were expected to be much better in 2016. Things didn’t start the way Buffalo had planned and they got off to a record of 0-2.
They were finally able to get their first win of the season last week against Army and will look to keep the streak going this week in Boston.
Buffalo will be led this season by their defense and they currently have the second ranked pass defense in the country, only giving up 110 yards per game through the air.
Their running defense is another story.
This week could be a struggle for Buffalo with the ground attack of Boston College. The Bulls are only averaging 17.7 points per game and will have their hands full this week looking to improve their record to 2-2.

Free Week 5 NCAA Football Prediction
The Eagles running attack against a struggling Bulls run defense will be the key to this week’s game.
Both teams are having difficulties on offense and the game could come down to a touchdown being scored on eiher defense or special teams.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Buffalo +17
Both teams will look to move the ball on the ground in this game and it should be a defensive battle all the way through.
Boston College should have no problem winning the game, but I don’t see them doing enough with the ball on offense to be able to cover the spread.
