Virginia Tech will go on the road to take on the Boston College Eagles.
Boston College has now lost 4 games in a row after losing 17-14 to the Louisville Cardinals.

Running back Myles Willis carried the ball 12 times for 22 yards and no touchdowns. Wide Receiver Thadd Smith led the Eagles with 4 catches for 40 yards. Myles Willis also added a catch for 36 yards. Boston College offense was non-existent once again. Their defense has been able to keep them in games but without an offense they wont win many games. They will host Virginia Tech this weekend.

Virginia Tech is 5-1 against the spread in their last 6 games after allowing more than 40 points in their previous game. The Hokies are 1-4 against the spread in their last 5 games overall. Boston College is 6-0-1 against the spread in their last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record. Boston College is 4-1-1 against the spread in their last 6 games following a loss.
This should be a low scoring game with the lack of offenses and the good defenses they have. I will give the sight edge on offense to Virginia Tech with the return of their starting quarterback Michael Brewer. Im going to take the Hokies here in a low scoring game.
