Not only does BC stop the run well - they can fly! (Per OrangeandWhite.com)
And here we are – a week into January and just topping off the bowl season in San Francisco…
2010-11 ACC Pick’Em (73-31 so far on the season)
01/09/11 – Boston College Eagles vs. Nevada Wolfpack / ESPN/ 9 ET
Must-See Matchup, BC offense vs. Nevada Defense: Montel Harris vs. Nevada rush D
Thanks to the long layoff, Harris is back from the knee injury to give the Eagles a 1-2 punch with Williams against the 23rd ranked rushing D at Nevada.
Must-See Matchup, Nevada offense vs. BC Defense: Colin Kaepernick & Nevada run vs. BC’s no. 1 rush D
Nevada’s pistol rushing attack is ranked 3rd nationally – averaging over 300 yards per game…BC is just allowing 80 yards – something has to give.
Watch 4: Nevada’s dynamic offense to be just too much
Nevada has something to prove in front of a mostly partisan crowd in San Francisco – BC will probably be BC and hang tough…Wolfpack just grind it out in the fourth quarter.
The Pick: Wolfpack 28 Eagles 20
ATS Section (45-45-1 to date)
Over .500 all rides on the final ACC game of the season – here goes…
Nevada -7.5 vs. BC
Take to Bank %: 15%
BC allowed 10, 13, 16, 13, and 7 in their 5-game winning streak to the finish – Nevada scored 63, 35, 52, 34, and 35 in that stretch…so just what is the exchange rate from a top 15 team from the WAC to a 7-5 team from the ACC? Apparently, it’s just over a TD to Vegas and I think the Wolfpack just edge out the number.
Thoughts on the Fight Hunger – are actually watching it at 9 ET on a Sunday night?
