CHAPEL HILL– The 3-3 Boston College Eagles present the next challenge for a Tar Heel team hungry to get back in the win column.

Coach Addazio says he thinks the bye week came at the right time for the Eagles.

“We had come off a tough road game and a physical stretch of playing some pretty good opponents. We felt like we needed a chance to gather ourselves a little bit,” Coach Addazio says.

Boston College stayed competitive with both Florida State and Clemson earlier in the season; two of the top teams in the ACC. Coach Addazio says his team is learning how to play tough and physical through four quarters.

“We’re learning how to be a physical, tough team that plays with a lot of energy and a lot of passion. And that’s the footprint that we want here. I think that to this point we’ve been a scrappy hard-playing football team,” Coach Addazio says.

And with the ACC’s leading rusher, Andre Williams, in their backfield, the Eagles will be confident in their chances Saturday.

“He’s got a good offensive line in front of him. He’s a big, fast, physical guy. He’s 230 pound guy who runs a 4.5. He’s got speed and power, and he’s got a good front in front of him. So those combinations usually work pretty well,” Coach Addazio says.
