FSU Vs. Boston College Game Time, TV Schedule, Spread And More

Florida State will be looking for their fourth straight win against the Boston College Eagles on Thursday night.

After a 2-3 start to the season, the Florida St. Seminoles will be seeking their fourth straight win on Thursday night against the Boston College Eagles at Alumni Stadium on Thursday night.

The Seminoles opened the season 2-0, but lost to then-No.1 ranked Oklahoma on September 17 and had a pair of 35-30 road losses to ACC rivals Clemson and Wake Forest before rebounding with convincing wins over Duke, Maryland and North Carolina State. Junior quarterback E.J. Manuel has played well during the Seminoles' three-game winning streak, completing 52-of-74 pass attempts for 824 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions. Florida State's defense is allowing just 77 yards per game, which ranks fourth in the nation.

Injuries have derailed Boston College's season, but the Eagles are coming off a 28-17 win over Maryland, ending their second three-game losing streak of the season. Without senior running back Montel Harris, who is out with a knee injury that has the team seeking a medical redshirt waiver, running backs Andre Williams and Rolandan Finch have carried the offensive load, combining for 914 yards and seven touchdowns. Finch had 243 yards and two touchdowns in last week's win over the Terrapins, earning ACC Offensive Back of the Week.

All-American junior linebacker Luke Kuechly continues to be a tackling machine, leading the nation with 130 tackles, including 8.5 for a loss and adding a team-high two interceptions.
