The Boston College Eagles and No. 17-ranked Clemson Tigers will meet Saturday (3:30 p.m. ET on ESPN2) for an Atlantic Coast Conference showdown at Alumni Stadium. The Eagles (1-2, 0-1 ACC) are coming off a bye week looking to pull off an upset over the reeling Tigers (3-1, 0-1), who will be trying to bounce-back from last Saturday's 49-37 loss to No. 4 Florida St. Seminoles.
Clemson will enter as a 9-point favorite over the Eagles, who lost to the Northwestern Wildcats, 22-13, on Sept. 15. B.C.'s lone victory came against the Maine Black Bears, a Football Championship Subdivision program. The Tigers three victories came over the Auburn Tigers, Ball State Cardinals and Furman University.
The Tigers have lost two of their last three games at Chestnut Hill since the Eagles joined the conference in 2005.
