It may have taken overtime to finish the job, but BC ultimately got the result they were hoping for last week with a 31-30 victory over the Pittsburgh Panthers. WR Zay Flowers had a stellar game for BC as he caught six passes for three TDs and 162 yards. Near the top of the highlight reel was Phil Jurkovec’s 77-yard TD bomb to Flowers in the third quarter.
Meanwhile, Virginia Tech came up short against the North Carolina Tar Heels last week, falling 56-45. Virginia Tech’s defeat came about despite a quality game from RB Khalil Herbert, who rushed for two TDs and 138 yards on 18 carries. One of the most memorable plays of the game was Herbert’s 52-yard touchdown rush in the third quarter.
The Eagles are now 3-1 while the Hokies sit at 2-1. A pair of defensive stats to keep an eye on: BC comes into the matchup boasting the ninth most sacks in the nation at 11. But Virginia Tech is even better: they enter the contest with 13 sacks, good for third best in the nation. With that kind of ball pressure, don’t be surprised if there are a lot of short passes in this one.
