Syracuse and Boston College. A rival we've seen before. But this year has a lot of interesting back stories going on. Steve Addazio is up against the wall. This is basically a must win game for him. For Syracuse to remain in Bowl contention, the Orange need this one too. So who can win this one?
A mere two weeks ago, I think a lot of the Orange faithful thought the year was dead. We packed it in, and we were waiting for basketball. Some really ridiculous fans had even written off Babers, despite the fact that Syracuse, like all programs, need time to adjust to a new HBC. But then things changed. Syracuse beat #17 Virginia Tech, and not in a way that would have you say Syracuse got lucky or VTech just didn't show up. It was a convincing win where Syracuse played above their pay grade in all 3 phases of the game. It was awesome. And then for some dumb reason, Vegas has SU a dog against BC today (BC lost to VTech 49-0, just saying). Odd. Either way, Boston College is struggling for wins in ACC play. Last year they had zero. Currently they have zero. But they do have 3 wins and a schedule with little margin for error, still having to face NC State, Louisville, and Florida State. But let's face it... I can't pick against Eric Dungey and company after last weeks win. I can't pick against Syracuse after that locker room speech for Babers. I can't pick against Syracuse because... they're playing Boston College. And, as you may already know, BC SUCKS AND ALWAYS WILL. So here's to the Outhouse on the hill. Orange over the Eagles 31 to 24.
