This article is another in a series of articles in which the Confidential opines regarding the over/under for football wins in 2015. We’ll take a cursory look at the schedule and determine what we think is the point where folks will struggle to select “over” or “under.” We hope people will share their comments as to “why” they are going over/under. If you disagree with our over/under choice, of course, feel free to let us know too. The next team up: Boston College. We are going with an over/under of 7.5 regular season wins.
- September 5 vs Maine
- September 12 vs Howard
- September 18 vs Florida State
- September 26 vs Northern Illinois
- October 3 @ Duke
- October 10 vs Wake Forest
- October 17 @ Clemson
- October 24 @ Louisville
- October 31 vs Virginia Tech
- November 7 vs NC State
- November 21 @ Notre Dame (Fenway Park)
- November 28 @ Syracuse
Likely losses: Florida State, Clemson and Louisville
Likely wins: Maine, Howard, Wake Forest and NC State
Summary: With 8 games in Massachusetts, including that “road game” against Notre Dame at Fenway Park, Boston College has one good thing going for it. The scheduling of Maine and Howard should equal two more wins. Hosting Florida State, as well as trips to Clemson and Louisville, should be three losses. However, Boston College has played everyone close the past two years–nothing should be taken for granted. One wonders about health and attrition, as the only bye week comes on November 14–late in the season. But we see good things for the Eagles overall. Ultimately, the Confidential goes with an over-under of 7.5 wins.
What do you think? Over or under? Let us know.
