Entering his fourth year at Boston College, head coach Frank Spaziani will try to improve upon a 4-8 record from 2011. Last season was a rough one for the Eagles and left them without a bowl appearance for the first time in 12 years. Despite this, linebacker Luke Kuechly’s dominating presence on the Eagles defense won him the Lombardi Award, the Butkus Award, the Lott Trophy, and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy. This season Coach Spaz’s offense will need to improve drastically, as they ranked 100th in passing and 112th overall last season. Despite losing Kuechly, the Eagles’ defense is still among the ACC’s best, so it will likely be up to the offense to see how far the team will fly in 2012. The Eagles schedule looks tough, but still easier than last season. Get your tickets today with Gold Coast Tickets and cheer the Eagles on!
