A pair of 2-0 teams meet in their ACC conference opener as the #9 Florida State Seminoles travel to Boston to take on the Boston College Eagles.
#9 Florida State need a giant 2nd half to pull away from South Florida for a 20 point win in Week 2.
Boston College rushed out of the gates against the Howard Bison and never looked back as they absolutely destroyed them 76-0.
With major ACC implications on the line this early in the season, the matchup is deemed a marquee one on Friday night on ESPN.
The Seminoles had a very difficult game in their Week 2 game against the South Florida Bulls. After being tied 7-7 at the half, the Seminoles rushed out of the locker room to outscore the Bulls 17-0 in the 3rd quarter.
Eventually, the Seminoles finished off a 34-14 win.
RB Devin Cook had 30 carries for 266 yards to go along with three touchdowns. Cook’s rushing attack was the 2nd best single performance in school history and the first 200 yard game since back in 1988.
Cook has rushed for at least 100 yards in 5 straight games and has 422 yards along with 5 touchdowns on the season.
Florida State has won their last 5 games against Boston College.
The Eagles made a little history of their own as their 76-0 win was their biggest win since 1949. Boston College racked up 483 total yards in the game and had production from both sides of the ball.
In the run game, Tyler Rouse rushed for 3 touchdowns and Jeff Smith added in 3 touchdowns of his own. As a team they rushed for 347 yards.
Not that they needed it, but the pass game got every QB some action. Troy Flutie threw for 88 yards and a touchdown as he went 7 of 8, Darius Wade contributed 30 yards and a touchdown of his own.
The Boston College Eagles defense was something else. They held Howard to just 11 yards of total offense and nearly held them in the negatives.
