It's not every week that an Ivy League school is considered a road favorite against an ACC school, but that's probably what will happen when Harvard plays Boston College
There aren't a whole lot of super interesting games in the ACC this week, but No. 23 Harvard will be paying Boston College a visit on Thursday. It's a rare instance when an Ivy League school is a prohibitive road favorite over an ACC team, but this appears to be one of those times.
Harvard is off to a 10-1 start that includes wins over such schools as Florida State (who was ranked No. 20 at the time), Utah and the University of Central Florida. Those aren't exactly powerhouses, but they are definitely decent teams that normally have their way with smaller-conference schools. Harvard's only loss was to No. 9 UConn, and they were down by just two at the half in that one.
Boston College (5-7) has not looked so good this year and that's even after three straight wins. Those wins have come against Stony Brook, Bryant University and Sacred Heart.
