College football preview: No. 8 Florida State at Boston College, 3:30 Saturday, Ch. 28, 820-AM

No. 8 FSU at Boston College, 3:30, Ch. 28, 820-AM

Reigning Atlantic Coast Conference champion Florida State (3-0, 1-0) begins a stretch of seven consecutive conference games that will determine if the Seminoles play in the title game for the third time in four years. Boston College (2-1, 1-0) aims to give coach Steve Addazio a signature win in his first year with the Eagles. The Seminoles have won three in a row against the Eagles.

Watch out for …: Boston College must establish its running game. RB Andre Williams leads the ACC at 118.7 yards rushing per game. The Eagles offense revolves around a physical ground game and veteran offensive line. That will be necessary to keep Florida State's No. 5-ranked scoring offense on the sideline. The Seminoles' No. 45-ranked run defense has allowed 135.3 yards per game. Seminoles LB Telvin Smith and the front seven have to win the line of scrimmage.
