Boston College Scouting Report: Quarterback Trouble

It’s a Beantown bash as Virginia Tech travels to play Boston College. The Hokies are on a 1-0 streak, while BC’s reeled off four straight losses in ACC play. 


OC Frank Cignetti still has a pro-style approach, and I worry the most about the BC offense when it’s in under-center formations. One play that caught my eye was this little Toss Power:

Between the toss, and the QB wrapping on a counter step to make the toss, and the cross-action with the H-back, there’s a lot to digest on this call. The Hokies haven’t seen many under-the-center runs this year, and a quick-hitter UTC run with a little bit of deception could be problematic.
