Eagles hoping for better result at home
From unhappy Clemson fans to BC's return home to North Carolina's challenge against Louisville, the ACC is covered here.
The Eagles return home this weekend to seek their first league win in Chestnut Hill, Mass., facing a Virginia team that is battling injuries and inconsistency on defense. The Eagles lead the league in rushing defense and are well-suited to stop what the Cavaliers do best, which is running the ball.
Both teams need to win to remain in realistic contention for a division championship, but the Eagles have more reason to have a sense of urgency. Their loss to the Seminoles cost them the head-to-head tiebreaker if both teams end up with one league loss.
