BC's defense: given up one sustained TD drive this year

For a 3-3 team, their defense is incredibly good. The problem is that they've played some pretty bad teams, so it's hard to see exactly how good they are. But here are the number points that their DEFENSE has given up, and the number of yards they've allowed in their six games this year. I'm emphasizing "defense" because they've given up two other TDs that weren't against their defense.


Maine:
3 points, 91 yards

Howard:
0 points, 11 yards

FSU:
7 points (FSU also got a defensive score), 217 yards

NIU:
7 points (NIU also got a kick return for TD), 153 yards
NIU's one touchdown was a 4-yard drive

Duke:
9 points, 228 yards

Wake:
3 points, 142 yards
The FG drive went -2 yards


So they have actually given up four TDs this year, but one was on defense, one was on special teams, and one was a four-yard drive after a big interception return. FSU is the only team that put together any kind of drive against them. Duke's 228 yards is actually the most they've given up all year, which is unbelievably good.

Now let's tell the whole story. Howard might be the worst team...in FCS. Maine is also FCS. Wake and Duke both struggle on offense, and FSU hasn't been all that impressive on offense either. NIU is down from where they've been.

This will be a great test for the BC defense, because Clemson's offense is on a completely different level than anything they've seen this year except for FSU. It seems like we're better on offense than FSU at this point, but I wouldn't say that it's an order of magnitude difference. I expect us to struggle on offense and would be impressed if we broke 20 against them. Their defense hasn't given up double digits to anyone (though they gave up 14 to two teams because of a fumble return and a KO return).

BC's offense is a train wreck. They're not going to enjoy Dodd, Lawson, Alexander, Kearse, et al. I see that Clemson is favored by 17. The oddsmakers might want to put the over/under at 17. :)

I think it'll be about 20-3 good guys. Not a lot of stress, but no big blowout.

Exactly. I'm in the group saying a 30-0 shutout is possible. Don't need anyone who DOESNT know football to tell me that. BC will face the most balanced offense they will face this year. We ain't WF.

FSU is the ONLY O they faced this year. Ours is better...***

Five of BCs first 6 games have been at home including FSU

They have played a lightweight schedule overall and they have only had to travel once ... down to Duke.

Clemson wins this one by a score of at least 27-0.

Weather will be in our offense's favor for a change

Clear, 0% chance of rain, high around 70 degrees. I believe we break 30 as well.

I believe it will be 61 degrees at kick off. It's a night game?

I for one am glad you are stopping. You are one of the most ignorant posters ever. You obviously think very highly of your own opinion, unlike the rest of us - RockHillTiger

They have only played one team with a pulse. This game will not be close. Clemson by 25+.

And that team only scored 1 offensive TD


Posted: Oct 12, 2015, 12:12 PM
 

No idea why you'd think we would score enough to win by 25 when this if the best defense we've played all year and we've yet to win by 25. The only reason that might happen is if BC's offense puts their defense in bad field position.

Can we pay this guy instead of Mackey? He has the smarts.

Good work. It will be a great test for our offense. I feel like we've gone up against some very good defenses early in the season. That will pay dividends once we get into the back half of our schedule, which has some marshmallowy defenses. Including one in cootlumbia.

Scott has come close to breaking a few kickoff returns.

I think this will be the game where he takes it to the house, though I hope he doesn't have many opportunities.

I also think we will get a defensive score because we are due.

BC will try ball control and always plays us tough(remember the last two years)so I think the scoring will be low as suggested.

Final score: 28-6.

Its a night game in death valley. Bc defense may stop the run early. But watson and our recievers will go airforce. It wont be close.

Clemson 45
Bc 0

Hows that for my first post on tigernet

link

That's about what I expect, too

However, if our defense plays up to their ability, you could see the offense coming up with some extra points because of field position and a tired BC defense. If that happens, we could finish with less than 400 yards but still have 30-ish points.
