Opponent Preview: Howard Bison

In the second installment of the BC Opponent Preview, Eagles Insider takes a look at the Howard Bison, a FCS opponent that should be a breeze for the Eagles.

In their first ever meeting between the two schools, the Boston College Eagles will host the Howard Bison. In their second game of the season and second against an FCS opponent, the Eagles have another game to break in their new players before a long stretch of in-conference games.

The Bison hail from the MEAC, where they finished eighth last season going 3-5 in the conference and 5-7 on the season.

Like their previous FCS opponent, the Maine Black Bears, the Eagles have a 95.7 percent chance of winning, according to ESPN FPI.

Hopefully playing in two gimme games will help build confidence for the Eagles, as their next opponent is Florida State University. The Eagles have some talent on both sides of the ball. Playing two FCS schools before having to play a tough ACC schedule will help boost the Eagles confidence.

Insider Prediction: BC 42, Howard 10
