Our Selection The Golden Eagle lost to Wake Forest on the road 28-14 last season so they will be looking for a little payback at home this week and start off the year 2-0. Boston College hasn’t won back to back games since their 5 game winning streak in 2010. Both teams have 16 starters returning from last season, 8 each on both sides of the ball. We have to side with the home team in this game, The Golden Eagles got off to a slow start last week before scoring 17 points in the 4 quarter and beating Villanova 24-14 under new head coach Steve Addazio. Wake Forest had a much easier home opener against a under matched Presbyterian squad that could only manage 2 first downs and gave up six turnovers in a 31-7 win for the Demon Deacons.
