Note: bookmakers' policies on voided matches changes so we always recommend players to check the specific terms of bookmakers they bet with to ensure they understand under what circumstances they void bets. This happens when a match is suspended, posponed, or cancelled e.g.

As we know, last week BC got blown out at home by Kansas, and is likely extra motivated to come into Jersey and return the favor at Rutgers. Fred Gaudios: It feels like the Rutgers Football-related news since the Iowa game has been a downward trickle of depression. Im not so sure we can, but I hope I am wrong. Last night, we learned Carter is definitively out, and Sitkowski is in at QB. BC can run the ball very well, which, in doing the math, is one measure of competent offensive production above what we can likely provide. I hope Art does well, but I just dont see enough here to predict a Rutgers victory. Im surprised to see an over/under line in the mid-to-upper-50s for this game, this usually means odds makers think both teams can score points. Boston College 27, Rutgers 10.

I dont want to look at BCs loss to Kansas last week and say hey, they look beatable!. The Knights strength is the running game. Rutgers 16, Boston College 14. but Im gonna do it anyway. I dont want to get my hopes dashed again... Our defense should be able to hold its own again a bottom-tier ACC team. Adam Ross: I dont want to be optimistic about this team. Let the running game keep the offense on the field, if nothing else to give the defense a breather for more than 90 seconds. BC is giving up 214 yards per game on the ground. Heck, this is going to be the last chance to do that for a while.

Over / Under Prediction: The match between Rutgers Scarlet Knights and Boston College Eagles will end with under 58.50 points in full event at odds 1.85

I think the Scarlet Knights will give a good effort and play well. In what is likelythe last realistic chance for the ``signature win AD Pat Hobbs called for. Against a Boston College team that got humiliated at home last week by Kansas. Playing a program they directly compete with for recruits. Their season-opening win over UMass was tarnished when the Minutemen got clobbered by FCS-foe Southern Illinois a week later. But will it be good enough to win? At home in SHI Stadium. This is the last stand for Chris Ash. If the Rutgers head coach cant get the most out of his team here, then whats the point?

That includes quarterback Anthony Brown out of St. But the quarterback Ash's staff recruited in that class, Tylin Odin, wound up getting booted from the program. It's 248 miles from Boston to Piscataway but the Eagles have poached some of the Garden State's top gridiron talent. That's on Ash, and so is the Scarlet Knights'chronic, painfulinability to get a first down over four seasons. Can't blame that one on Chris Ash; Brown committed during the waning months of Kyle Flood's regime. John Vianney High School.

I think these kids work hard, and they deserve to get a morale booster. Boston College: 24, Rutgers 13. I do think, they will come out with something to prove, so it will be a bit closer than some of my colleagues are predicting. Cara Sanfilippo: I wish I could say I think Rutgers will win, especially because I have season tickets and will be at the game Saturday. I will be there to support either way, but at least make it interesting. Same old story. Prove me wrong, Rutgers, please. With Artur Sitkowski starting, he still has not shown any presence in the pocket or chemistry with his receivers, so I fear the offense will be mostly stagnant and the defense will tire out.

For yards through the air allowed per game, the Scarlet Knights currently sit at 4th in the Big Ten Conference. As a team, they have compiled a total of 290 yards rushing through 2 games, so they'll need to look to improve on these numbers if they want to compete with the better teams in the nation. When talking about rushing yards, they are giving up 188.5 yards per game which puts them at 109th in the country and 14th in the conference. The Scarlet Knights average 339.5 yards per contest overall putting them 105th in college football and 13th in the Big Ten. This year, they have allowed 377 rushing yards and 2 rushing TDs. The Scarlet Knights head into this matchup 1-1. They are conceding 182.5 passing yards per contest. In discussing points allowed, they have given up 51 points in total. Rutgers is having a year to forget in the ground game by averaging 145 yards on the ground per contest, putting them 86th in Division 1. Their passing defense is one of the elite units in D-1. The Scarlet Knights are giving up 25.5 points per contest ranking them 12th in the Big Ten Conference and 73rd in Division 1.

Boston College vs. Rutgers Free Picks & Predictions

BC will set too fast a pace that Rutgers without QB McLane Carter will be able to handle. The Eagle offense will get off to a hot start, the defense will do a far better job in the linebacking corps keeping the big runs to a minimum. The Scarlet Knight offense will be far, far better than it was against Iowa, and it still wont be enough.

And we're going to see it on Saturday. The defense has improved from "bad" to "not terrible" but until the offense starts scoring points, they're going to get stuck on the field and, eventually, start giving up the points. This is a make-or-break game for Head Coach Chris Ash. The boo birds will be out in full force -- and who can blame them? The offense is bad. Every recruit in the Northeast is going to be sitting at SHI Stadium and I just don't think they're going to get it done. Boston College is a real team -- but not one that (at least under previous regimes) Rutgers can't beat. We saw it last season. We saw it last week.

In addition to Brown's strong play at quarterback, the Eagles have gotten excellent play from running back AJ Dillion who has gained 318 yards on 67 carries with four touchdowns. Boston College's offense has been clicking along throughout the early part of the season, averaging 34.7 points and 465.7 yards of total offense. Fortunately for Boston College, its defense has allowed a lot of yards but kept the points under control. Dillon was one of the lone brights spots against Kansas, rushing 27 times for 151 yards and a TD.

So, as much as I want to pick a Rutgers win, I cant, until they show me otherwise. I expect them to come out fired up and hand the ball off as much as possible to control the game and keep it close. Rutgers cant. There are too many weapons. Dave White: I have a weird, weird feeling about this game. Its the most important game in the Chris Ash era and despite Ashs coachs talk, he knows it and the team knows it. Boston College 42 Rutgers 10. That said, its Rutgers and its Chris Ash. This gameto the Scarlet Knightsis going to be all about field position and holding on to the ball to keep the defense fresh and the score down to a manageable deficit. Seven days ago I had this as a blowout and now my mind is trying to play tricks on me. They might even be a quick strike team. This isnt an Al Skinner BC teamthey can score. Boston College can put up points for sure.
