Losing your starting quarterback in the first game of the season is never good but it is surprising how poorly Florida State has managed this season.
Boston College has surprised on the other hand. They get to host FSU and have a real chance of beating them this week in an odd Friday evening slot.
Florida State Seminoles
Even with the injuries they have had this season it is hard to see that record in front of the FSU brand. With games against Clemson and Florida still this team might not be bowl eligible.
I know the injury to Deondre Francois was critical but I think it might be as much on the offensive line. Against opponents that were not Alabama they should have been able to run the ball keep things simple and have more success.
The defense has not been great either, certainly nowhere near the standards that have been set bu this group over the past 30 years. And they don’t cause a lot of turnovers.
Boston College Eagles
The Eagles have been very impressive over the last couple of weeks. They kind of shocked the conference when they won at Louisville and then followed that by dominating at Virginia.
The cool thing is that they did it in too different ways. Against Louisville AJ Dillon rushed for nearly 300 yards, against Virginia QB Anthony Brown had his best game of the season. Both are freshmen.
It has been a points explosion the last two weeks. They have scored over 40 in back to back games maybe for the first time since Matt Ryan was on campus. The defense is not what is used to be unfortunately.

This one seems like a setup with the Noles being such small favourites on the road. Yes it is reflective of recent performance and the last time BC was considered this close in level they beat FSU outright at home in 2009 (they were +3.5)
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Florida State -3
This pick may not feel right but it does feel smart. I know a lot has changed from the beginning of the season til now but this looks like a gift.
The BC offene may be better than expected and I like their future a lot but assuming Florida State hasn’t completely derailed they will get the road win to calm the noise.
