History means little for BC’s gridiron cause

The facts that Boston College has beat Florida State two years running and is 2-0 in Tallahassee since joining the ACC won’t help the Eagles snap a three-game skid this weekend.

The No. 16 Seminoles come into Saturday’s contest (noon, ESPN) with a four-game winning streak and their highest ranking in two seasons.

“They just line up and say ‘We’re better than anyone we’re playing,’” freshman BC quarterback Chase Rettig said. “That’s how they play.”

BC (2-3) is below .500 through as many as five games for the first time since 1998, which was also the last time the Eagles lost three in a row.

FSU (5-1) has a good shot at making it four straight losses. But Rettig hopes to have a say in the matter.

The ankle he injured during his first career start against Notre Dame two weeks ago is just about 100 percent healthy. He missed last week’s 44-17 loss at N.C. State, but could start Saturday.
