Louisville vs. Boston College Prediction:
Louisville has far too much firepower for Boston College and this one could turn ugly in a hurry. Boston College's defense does rank seventh in the country allowing just 299 yards per game, but nobody has been able to shut down Jackson and the Cardinals' offense this season.
Boston College will have trouble getting anything going offensively and the Cardinals take this one on the road.
