Doug Flutie isn’t going to run onto the field for the Eagles in their home opener against the Canes, but the aura of this game is still quite important. Boston College has been able to win two in a row in this series, including last year in South Beach by a 24-17 score. The Hurricanes weren’t able to do all that much offensively last year, and with QB Jacory Harris and several other starters on offense gone, we have to think that that won’t improve this week. These two teams have combined to play six straight ‘under’ contests dating back to 2001, and that might be the right way to go again on Saturday. It’s just going to be so hard picturing either of these teams getting into the mid-20s. Both should cap out in the high-teens or so, keeping this one beneath the number.
Miami @ Boston College Pick: Under 44
Miami @ Boston College Score Prediction: Boston College 20 – Miami 17
