Final: UCF 30, Boston College 3
By Heather Dinich
The Eagle has landed. Face first.
Boston College had more turnovers (2) than third-down conversions (1).
BC was outgained by 281 total yards.
And UCF quarterback Jeff Godfrey only threw five incomplete passes.
This isn't an offensive problem, or a defensive problem. It's a team problem. And right now, Boston College simply isn't very good. The Eagles are off to an 0-2 start, and while it's still early, the reality of the situation is that their bowl chances have already taken a big hit. This is supposed to be the easy part of the schedule. Virginia Tech, Florida State, Notre Dame, Miami ... that's the second half of the season.
Boston College has a reputation for being underrated. This might be a first -- so far they're falling below expectations.
