The 2018 Red Sox have a chance to equal a forgotten Boston baseball juggernaut

2018 Wake Forest Football Preseason Opponent Preview: Boston College

Coach Steve Addazio embarks on his sixth season as the Boston College Eagles Head Coach. If there’s a word to describe Addazio, some would say consistent, as BC has finished with a 7-6 record in four of the five seasons with him at the helm.
