    This was never a game. Wake Forest started with the ball and from the very first series it was apparent they were in for a rough day. A quick 3 and out gave B.C. the ball and an opportunity to strike first. QB Josh Bordner, in his 3rd game replacing an injured Chase Rettig, showed that he may be the best fit at QB for this team. He took the Eagles down the field and scored TD's on his first 3 possessions. It is not out of the question that by the time Rettig returns from his broken ribs that Bordner will have taken away the starting job.

    While Bordner displayed his arm, the Eagles also showed that to beat them, you need to stop their two headed rushing attack. With 42 rushing attempts in the game, the Eagles were able to keep the chains moving and keep their defense fresh.

    And man were they fresh, picking off Wake Forest QB Brendan Cross four times, and recovering another fumble. The defense dominated this game. While the end yardage totals for Wake Forest stand at 228, more than half of those yards came late in the game.

    Boston College continues to improve, and have put together a nice winning streak. The team is feeling confident and are excited as their next two opponents are in the top 25, with Michigan St. and Va. Tech.
