(An outsiders musings about happenings at Boston College, AKA The Heights)

CHESTNUT HILL, Ma.–The better team won the game at Alumni Stadium on Friday night.  It did it with style and enthusiasm.

So what’s the big deal, you say?

Well, this was a Friday Night Lights show in the Atlantic Coast Conference between Boston College and Florida State, a series which has gone FSU’s way since BC joined the ACC in 2005, which had  translated  into a 10-3 edge for the Seminoles.

But these aren’t the Bobby Bowden coached Seminoles who were one of the more dominant teams in the ACC. Nor are they were even the Jimbo Fisher coached team which has been an ACC elite force for the last six seasons and started this season ranked No. 2—in THE COUNTRY

Who knows what they were on Friday night when they crept into town with a 2-4 record, a three game losing streak in Tallahassee and staggered out of town with a 2-5 record following a a 35-3 pounding by a Boston College team that played better, was coached better and now must be considered one of the hotter teams in the ACC with a three game winning streak which has put the Eagles a game above .500 with a 5-4 record (3-3) in the ACC.

It was BC’s first win over the Seminoles since 2009.

The last time any FSU football team was three games under .500 was 41 years ago.

The last time that a BC team scored 35 points on an FSU team?  Well, never. The rest of this article is available to subscribers only – to become a subscriber click here.
