Quick Lane Bowl Matchup

The Eagles recorded straight-up wins in their final two regular season contests to claim bowl game eligibility and return to the postseason after a one-year absence. Boston College covered in wins over Connecticut and Wake Forest, surrendering just 14 total points in the final two games.

Boston College has relied on strong defense on the road back to the postseason. The Eagles gave up a mere eight points per game in their six victories, compensating for dismal offensive production, which ranked 123rd in the nation this year with just 19.1 ppg.

Not surprisingly, the point total went UNDER in five of Boston College's six wins. But when the Eagles lost, they lost big, giving up 45 or more points in four of their six defeats, and covering just once, while the total finished OVER on four occasions.

The Terrapins also return to the postseason following a one-year absence, locking up their eligibility with a 31-13 win over Rutgers as 15-point home chalk in their regular season finale. That halted a four-game slide during which Maryland failed to cover, including a pair of ATS losses as a 30-point underdog.

Maryland has also struggled in recent postseason contests, losing by double-digit margins in its past two bowl game appearances, both as a betting underdog. The Terrapins own a respectable bowl game record otherwise, going 5-3 SU and ATS in eight, including three outright wins as underdogs.

This marks the first meeting between these squads since 2013. The two teams had met annually for nine years, dating back to 2005, with Boston College winning SU and ATS in their past three, and going 7-2 SU and 6-3 ATS overall during that span.
