True tests begin for BC Eagles

After a 2-0 start, that includes wins over unheralded opponents Kent State and Weber State, Boston College coach Frank Spaziani still isn’t quite sure what to make of his team.

“Tune in,” Spaziani said. “Minefields and potholes are showing up, but we’re working our way through them. We’re going to find out.”

Just how much is revealed on Saturday against a struggling Virginia Tech (1-2) team remains to be seen. The Hokies lost at home to James Madison, an FCS school, and were trailing in the third quarter before pulling ahead to beat East Carolina last weekend. Boston College is still searching for consistency at quarterback, the top returning receiver suffered a season-ending injury before the season began, and there are 22 freshmen and sophomores listed on the two-deep depth chart this week. The recent history between these two programs has made for an entertaining series, though, which is even at 4-4 in the past eight games.

“I like the way we’re working,” Spaziani said. “We’re working hard. We’re trying to get better. We’re not a good football team yet, but it’s a long season. We’re going to find out if we can sustain and work and get to where we need to go.”
