The Boston College Eagles need a bounce back victory after a rough 1-2 start to the season. Patrick Towles is completing 47.8 percent of his passes for 415 yards, two touchdowns and three interceptions. Towles has thrown at least one pick in his last 10 games. Jeff Smith and Charlie Callinan have combined for 230 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Michael Walker has six receptions. The Boston College Eagles ground game is averaging 124.3 yards per contest, and Jon Hilliman leads the way with 158 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, Boston College is allowing 24.3 points and 278.7 yards per game. Matt Milano leads the Eagles with 22 tackles, Connor Strachan has 2.5 sacks and John Johnson has one interception.
Boston College hasn't looked good out of the gate and is still struggling offensively. However, this should be the game where the Eagles and their overall talent overwhelms a team like Wagner. BC should be able to move the ball a bit and put points on the board, while the Seahawks have shown they can score as well, putting up 38 points in each of their first two games.
Give me the over with this low line.
