Winning the Atlantic Division of the ACC is out of reach, but the Boston College Eagles still have plenty to play for in 2018.
Sunnier days are hopefully awaiting the Boston College Eagles this weekend when they travel to Tallahassee, Florida to take on the Florida State Seminoles.
The Eagles gave a hard-fought effort last week against the second-ranked Clemson Tigers before ultimately falling in their first home loss of the season, 27-7.
A punt return by Michael Walker for a touchdown had the fans and team ecstatic early in the game, but the offense never really got going.

Quarterback Anthony Brown was injured in the first half and did not return and without the experience of Brown in the passing game, Clemson was able to key in on AJ Dillon and the running attack as the Eagles were limited to 113 total yards.
A valiant effort by the defense was not enough to power the team to victory.
Boston College is looking for its second straight victory over Florida State. The Eagles won last year 35-3 in Chestnut Hill and are hoping to win in Tallahassee for the first time since 2008.
A victory by the Eagles would give the program its first eight-win season since 2009 (8-5).
Florida State, meanwhile, is struggling in 2018. They need a victory to stay alive in hopes of achieving bowl eligibility. The Seminoles have made a bowl game in 36 straight seasons.
The season has certainly been a trying one for the Seminoles. They are coming off a 42-13 loss at Notre Dame.
