Boston College put itself in the driver's seat of the Atlantic Division by scoring an impressive victory against Florida State in Tallahassee.
BC, which plays nonconference foe Buffalo on Saturday, would clinch a berth in the ACC championship game if it wins its final four ACC games. The 18th-ranked Eagles (6-1, 3-1 Atlantic) will win the division even if they finish tied with Clemson at the end of the season. BC beat the Tigers in double overtime earlier this season.
"It's really a big win for our program," said BC quarterback Matt Ryan. "Obviously, Florida State is a storied program and someone who is always in the national picture. Ultimately, we move forward and they move back, and if we take care of business, I think we have a good shot."
