BOSTON COLLEGE HASN’T BEATEN AN FBS TEAM THIS YEAR, AND NO. 16 VIRGINIA TECH WILL TRY TO KEEP THIS SKID INTACT WHEN IT HOSTS THE EAGLES ON SATURDAY.

BOSTON COLLEGE EAGLES (1-5)
at VIRGINIA TECH HOKIES (6-1)

Kickoff: Saturday, 3:00 p.m. EDT
Line: Virginia Tech -20.5, Total: 43.5

Boston College hasn’t beaten an FBS team this year, and No. 16 Virginia Tech will try to keep this skid intact when it hosts the Eagles on Saturday. Las Vegas odds.

BC has very little chance at keeping this game close, ranking 105th in the country in offense (318 YPG) and 95th in defense (419 YPG). The Eagles are 0-5 against FBS schools this year, getting outscored 66-17 in two road defeats. Their top RB Montel Harris is done for the season (knee), and they’re going up against No. 8 run defense in the land (84 YPG). Virginia Tech QB Logan Thomas has lit up his past two ACC foes for 658 total yards and 9 TD, while RB David Wilson has four straight 120-yard rushing games. This will be over by the first quarter. The pick here is VIRGINIA TECH to win and cover.

This pair of FoxSheets trends also supports the Hokies:

Frank Beamer is 42-21 ATS (66.7%, +18.9 Units) off a road win as the coach of VIRGINIA TECH. The average score was VIRGINIA TECH 34.2, OPPONENT 12.8 – (Rating = 2*).

Play On – A home team (VIRGINIA TECH) – good offensive team (390 to 440 YPG) against a team with a poor defense (390 to 440 YPG), after outgaining opponent by 125 or more total yards in their previous game. (26-7 over the last 5 seasons.) (78.8%, +18.3 units. Rating = 2*). Vegas odds.

The Eagles are averaging 14.4 PPG in their five FBS defeats this year, failing to reach 20 points in any of these games. However, the hopeful return of RB Andre Williams (ankle) would certainly improve this offense. The sophomore rushed for 324 yards and three touchdowns in his four full games this season. QB Chase Rettig has seen his yardage totals drop in each of the past four weeks (247, 196, 188 and 129), but he has 6 TD and only 2 INT in these four contests. Sophomore WR Bobby Swigert gained a season-high 93 receiving yards and scored his first touchdown of the season in the last game against Clemson.

The BC defense has just been dreadful, ranking 105th in the country in sacks (1.0 per game) and 101st in passing defense (262 YPG). In three ACC games, the Eagles have surrendered 992 yards through the air (331 YPG). Although they forced four turnovers against FCS opponent UMass, BC has only three takeaways in five matchups with BCS teams.

Virginia Tech has crushed Boston College in each of the past three seasons, outscoring the Eagles 97 to 26. The Hokies ended last week’s game versus Wake Forest (which had won four straight games) on a 30-3 run. In addition to his strong performance throwing the football, Thomas has also scored four rushing touchdowns in the past two games. He’s the reason Wilson only has three rushing TD in his past six contests. Wilson leads the ACC and ranks fifth in the nation in rushing yardage (129 YPG), but has been limited to 101 yards on 29 carries (3.5 YPC) in two career games versus Boston College. Betting lines.

VT’s defense ranks 14th in scoring defense (16.4 PPG) and 15th in yardage (298 YPG), and these numbers would be even greater if the team wasn’t ravaged by injuries. DE James Gayle (ankle) missed last week’s game against Wake Forest and star CB Jayron Holsey injured his hamstring in the first quarter of the win over the Demon Deacons. Both Gayle (3.5 sacks) and Holsey (team-high 3 INT) are questionable for Saturday’s game. DT Antoine Hopkins (knee) and LB Jeron Gouveia-Winslow (foot) are already out for the year.
