The Boston College Eagles defeated the Central Michigan Chippewas 28-8 last saturday, earning the Eagles their 2nd win of the season. Coming off 3 consecutive losses it was crucial that BC turned their season around fast. Here are some interesting statistics from the contest.

 

  • 309 – 296: Yardage totals for BC and CMU respectively, although the score wasn’t close the Chippewas pretty much kept pace with the Eagles
  • 120: Total yards for freshman running back AJ Dillon, the most in the young backs career, his stock appears to be taking off
  • 53: Rushing attempts for the BC offense, although this year’s unit has been more focused on the pass, ground and pound Addazio made his return his week
  • 5: Interceptions for Lukas Denis on the season, his pick last game tied him for first in the country
  • 3: Sacks by the BC defense, although the unit has struggled at times and been hammered by injuries, they got back on track
  • 85: Passing yards for QB Anthony Brown, he did a good job managing the game but was unable to move the ball downfield or use his legs, to beat better teams Tony Football must be better
  • 3.5: Yards per carry for the CMU backs, the BC D has been susceptible to the run this season, giving up 515 yards to Notre Dame, but were stout on saturday
  • 1, 2: Sacks and tackles for loss for Harold Landry, playing at outside linebacker because of depth issues
  • 2: Points given to on a safety CMU when RB Jon Hillman was stuffed on an inside run on the 2nd drive of the game
  • 20: Margin of victory for the Eagles, highest his season
  • 0: ACC opponents BC has beaten, they face a tough test this week at home versus Virginia Tech
  • 2-3: Current record of the Boston College Eagles
