The Miami Hurricanes and Boston College Eagles open the season with an ACC game Saturday, with the 'Canes visiting BC at Chestnut Hill in a major test for both teams right from the start.
These are two middle-of-the-road ACC teams, at least as it appears now, and Stephen Morris gets his chance to lead Miami at quarterback. He could be the player to watch in this game.
BC hopes to get some improved play from its defense, which lost its best player to the NFL Draft, and score enough points at home to pick up the win.
Miami will have revenge on its mind after losing to BC at home last November, 24-17. Chase Rettig, who was at the helm for the Eagles in that game, is back as a junior for Boston College. He has thrown 18 TDs and 18 interceptions in his college career.
The game is set for 3:30 p.m. ET on ABC/ESPN2 regionally. Miami is a 2.5-point favorite.
