An easy week against Central Florida gives way to a much tougher task on the road against the defectors from Boston. Which of our predictors will be able to hit the mark?

The third and final stop on the Big East Traitor Farewell Tour takes the Mountaineers into Beantown to meet the BC Eagles. West Virginia is on a roll, but losing Rasheed Marshall could hurt. "Chachi" has all of the tools, but there are bound to be some mistakes in any quarterback's starting debut. Luckily, all Hales will have to do early is hand Quincy and Kay Jay the ball and stay out of the way. Early ground success will lead to more than one big play through the air, and the Mountaineers will have their own tea party, throwing bags full of ACC logos into the harbor. WVU

Charles Hales will make his first start for the Mountaineers. Boston College is worried more about biased Big East officiating. Neither will matter as WVU will run the ball 58 times for 311 yards and throw it 15 times for 175. WVU has executed a pass play of 75 yards or longer in five straight games. BC will stack nine men in the box, and Chachi will hit enough deep balls to give the running game room. WVU

The deck is stacked against the Gold and Blue for Saturday's tilt against the Eagles. Rasheed Marshall is on the bench, the Eagles have not lost a home game to WVU since 1995, the Mountaineers are 6-21-0 as a road underdog and the Eagles are 27-4-1 as a home favorite. The Mountaineers' only ace in the hole, according the BC coach Tom O'Brien, will be the Big East officiating crew. But even without the new sound system at Mountaineer Field, or the supposed help of the refs, WVU will find a way to win this one. WVU

For the first time in a long time, Mountaineers come into Boston without Rasheed Marshall at the wheel. Charles Hales has tasted some limited success this season, but has yet to carry the offensive leadership role for an entire game. WVU would like nothing more than to hand the Eagles another home field lose. Look for WVU to be the team to come up short .... BC

Few things make me happier than watching WVU run the ball down the throats of a team that's supposed to have a good run defense. Someone ask Frank Beamer how that works. And there's no reason to be worried about starting Charles Hales. We could start Charles Schwab at QB for this one, and we'd be OK. There are forces at work in the universe that are more powerful than any mortals, and they are not happy with Boston College. They won't allow a just and good West Virginia team to lose this game.

Quincy and friends are rolling, and BC has rarely defeated a good WVU club. Of the Eagles' five recent wins over WVU, four came against Mountaineer squads with losing records. If this WVU squad is good, it wins at BC. WVU
