Yeah, against Stony Brook last week Army had 8 offensive possessions; four ended with lost fumbles, twice they turned it over on downs, they punted once, and kicked one field goal.  That's the type of performance that will kill the over for sure.  Army will need to score a minimum of 3 TDs for this to go over.

My prediction is a 45-21 ish game but still wont play bc again watched a few games and basically these teams are going to have to stop themselves for this not to go over

I think it'll be more like 40ish to 30ish, but your prediction works to.

I think it all comes down to the number of possessions Army gets.  Stony Brook is a very run-heavy team, so both teams really ground the clock down in that game.  Stony Brook rushed 59 times and only threw 15 passes.  That resulted in only 8 possessions for Army.

In the NIU and Wake Forest games Army had 11 possessions in each game, and scored TDs on about half of those possessions.  BC runs a more balanced offense, so hopefully the increased number of passes will give Army double digit possessions.  If so, and Army continues to score TDs on almost 50% of their possessions, this game should go over.

Correct packers, and thanks.  Best of luck to you this week as well.

C'mon people.  BC is a 1-3 team!! If anything, playing Florida State next week means Boston College will be *more* focused on Army this week.  They probably think of FSU as a likely loss so there's added pressure to beat the sh*t out of Army.

Jimmy-

Not sure about the over because of Army rolling the clock with the running game- Boston College is a total mismatch for Army and I look for them to take out their frustrations on a team they know they can beat- They are not looking ahead to a beatdown by Florida St. They are looking foward to beating Army and getting as many victories as possible. I think the B.C. team total might be worth a shot as well. 

Good Luck!
