The Boston College Eagles are being rewarded for a perfect start to their season. The Eagles are now nationally ranked for the first time in ten years, earning the #23 spot in the most recent poll. The Eagles have not been ranked since Falcons quarterback and NFL MVP Matt Ryan was at B.C.
The Eagles have averaged over 52 points-per-game, opening the season with blowout wins over Umass and Holy Cross, then holding off ACC rival Wake Forest by a touchdown.
The Boston College offense is riding high. Quarterback Anthony Brown threw for five touchdowns in the win against Wake Forest and Heisman hopeful AJ Dillon is off to a fantastic start. Dillion is 5th in nation with 432 rushing yards in three games and has scored four touchdowns.
Boston College won’t face a ranked opponent until October 26th. It will mark the start of a tough three game stretch when they will face #21 Miami, 13th ranked Virginia Tech, and the 3rd ranked Clemson Tigers.
The Eagles look to remain a perfect 4-0 when they face the Boilermakers of Purdue on Saturday at noon.
