After an unconvincing 34-26 win over Duke, Virginia Tech's players and coaches said the Blue Devils were much improved. Whether that is the case is yet to be determined, but the Hokies next opponent, Boston College, has already proven that it is a surprise team. The Eagles are 4-1 and 2-1 in the ACC. Who would have guessed that?

Boston College is in the mix for the up-for-grabs ACC Atlantic Division. The Eagles were picked to finish last in the division, but they have looked, well, good. "The players have something special brewing," Coach Frank Spaziani said.

Boston College's only loss came on the road, an ugly 25-7 defeat to Clemson on Sept. 19. The Hokies should provide a tough challenge for the Eagles.

And, in a nod to Tyrod Taylor's career performance Saturday, below is a video of his highlights. Against Duke, Taylor had a career passing performance, throwing for 327 yards and two touchdowns and completing 17 of 22 passes. In the video, you will notice that most of the highlights are of Taylor making plays with his legs. But this season, Taylor has seemed to make a more concerted effort to throw the ball. He has thrown six touchdowns and only one interception.

(Warning: There are explicit lyrics in the video.)

Correction: An earlier version of this post misstated Boston College's conference record.

how can BC be 2-0 in the Acc and come off a bad loss to Clemson?

I would have guessed that. Last couple years they seem to loose everybody then end up contending. A Matty Ice shows up, then he's gone and BC still gets to the title game beating VT regular season. This year their coach leaves, Disaster right? Nah... they always seem to put something together. BC-VT has been the only storyline in the ACC worthy of national interest (eg, Matty Ice "The throw") Never count them out, they've got some big O guys this year.
