What to Know

The Syracuse Orange and the Boston College Eagles are set to square off in an ACC matchup at 3:30 p.m. ET Oct. 30 at Carrier Dome. The Orange will be strutting in after a win while BC will be stumbling in from a loss.

'Cuse didn't have too much breathing room in their contest with the Virginia Tech Hokies last week, but they still walked away with a 41-36 victory. QB Garrett Shrader had a dynamite game for 'Cuse; he passed for two TDs and 236 yards on 34 attempts in addition to rushing for three TDs and 174 yards.

Meanwhile, BC was first on the board but had to settle for second at the end of their game against the Louisville Cardinals last week. BC fell to U of L 28-14. QB Dennis Grosel had a memorable game, but not in the way you want to be remembered: despite one touchdown, he threw two interceptions and fumbled the ball once with only 4.41 yards per passing attempt.

The Eagles' defense was a presence, as it collected two interceptions and two fumbles. The picks came courtesy of DB Jaiden Woodbey and DB Brandon Sebastian.

The Orange are the favorite in this one, with an expected 6.5-point margin of victory. Bettors make note: they are flawless against the spread this season.

'Cuse is now 4-4 while BC sits at 4-3. 'Cuse is 1-2 after wins this year, and BC is 0-2 after losses.
