BOSTON (AP) - It doesn't get any easier for Boston College.
After a humbling 35-7 loss to Southern California in their previous game, the Eagles return from their bye week to play No. 8 Florida State on Saturday. It will be the first ranked opponent for new BC coach Steve Addazio since arriving in Chestnut Hill, and the Seminoles (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) are the defending conference champions.
BC defensive lineman Kasim Edibali called it a perfect opportunity.
But the Eagles (2-1, 1-0) are still trying to rebuild a program that won just two games last season and posted double-digit losses for just the second time in school history. Now they face a Florida State team that won its first three games by a combined score of 157-26. Freshman quarterback Jameis Winston has eight touchdown passes and only 14 incompletions.
