1. Boston College – No, Boston College won’t win many fashion contests. But go ahead and doubt the Eagles and watch them prove everyone wrong. Again. BC should be strong up front – especially on the offensive line – and the Eagles can run the ball. They’re tough defensively, too. That’s a good combination for winning football.Andrew Carter's pre-season ACC projections. Boston College is legitimately good and has been so for about a decade now. Whether casual fans realize it is another issue. The best argument for BC, however, is the schedule. BC draws UVA & Duke from the Coastal division and gets Virginia Tech at home. There's a definite scenario in which BC could win the division even if FSU beats the Eagles, solely because of the schedule. FSU fans won't like that. But you can't seriously disagree with a pick of BC, FSU or Clemson to win the division. It is just too tight and all three teams have excellent arguments that they will take the division.
