The Kansas Jayhawks and the Boston College Eagles will meet up on the college football circuit  on Friday.

Kansas comes into this one at 1-1 overall on the young season. The Jayhawks took out Indiana State 24-17 in their opener but then fell in a pretty shocking result 12-7 to Coastal Carolina in Week 2.

In the Chanticleers game, Jayhawks QB Carter Stanley posted 107 yards with a pair of interceptions, and Stephon Robinson led the way with 45 yards on four grabs. Pooka Williams was the top Kansas rusher with 99 yards.

Over on the Boston College side, they’ve started out at 2-0 so far. the Eagles took out Virginia Tech 35-28 in the opener and Richmond 45-13 last week.

Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown had 163 yards and three scores on just eight passes, and David Bailey led an effective rush on 97 yards. Jake Burt’s one TD catch for 55 yards led the receivers.

The Jayhawks are 4-0 ATS in their last four after a straight-up loss and 6-2 in their last eight after an ATS loss. Kansas is 16-36-1 ATS in their last 53 road games and 7-21-1 ATS in their last 29 in September.

Meanwhile, the Eagles are 11-4-1 ATS in their last 16 on turf and 10-4-1 ATS in their last 15 after a straight-up win. BC is 2-5 ATS in their last seven Friday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five overall.

Well, it goes without saying that this really isn’t the way the Jayhawks wanted to start things out, and their offense pretty much stalled out following seven points in the first quarter against the Chanticleers.

As for the Eagles, they’ve got a few things to clean up but so far they’re hitting the ground running in games they need to win. I like BC to stay hot here and manage a cover.

Pick:
Boston College Eagles -18.5
