Boston College can play spoiler this week against Wake Forest. The Demon Deacons need a win in order to clinch the ACC Atlantic title and get a berth in next weekend’s ACC Championship Game.
If Boston College is able to pull off the upset, then it will be NC State who faces ACC Coastal champion Pittsburgh in Charlotte next week.
Boston College is already bowl eligible and has looked like a much more competitive team since Phil Jurkovec returned to action against Virginia Tech in October. The Eagles have won two of their last three games, and their loss was a 3-point defeat to Florida State last weekend.
Kickoff vs. Wake Forest is at 12 p.m. ET.
