A look around the Big East
The seat on which Orangemen coach Paul Pasqualoni sits has gone from warm to red-hot
Some might suggest that it was foolhardy for Boston College to agree to a Thursday night opener in Muncie, Ind., against Ball State, particularly since the game was not televised and the Eagles barely escaped with a 19-11 victory. But there was a method to the madness. The Eagles gave themselves extra time to prepare for a home game against a rejuvenated Penn State team, which is coming off a 48-10 win over Akron last Saturday. The added rest and prep time could be the difference in this game of evenly matched teams. It might even allow the Eagles to concoct a scheme to stop Nittany Lions quarterback Zack Mills, who scored three different ways Saturday.
