BOSTON COLLEGE RANKS FOR THE SECOND WEEK IN A ROW

BOSTON COLLEGE RANKS FOR THE SECOND WEEK IN A ROW

Boston College ranked No. 2 for the second week in a row for the third consecutive week in the College Football Playoff rankings, according to data compiled by the website BSN Stats.

The Eagles were also ranked No., for the sixth straight week, in the Associated Press Coaches Poll and No. 3 in the AP Top 25 poll.

Boston College’s 4-2 win over No. 11 Florida State on Saturday was the second consecutive win for the Eagles and tied for the longest active streak in the nation.

The last time Boston College had a win this long was in 2016 when it went 2-0 in conference play.

Boston University was ranked No, 7, on the AP’s Coaches’ Poll, while Stanford was No. 9.

Boston College has won 11 consecutive games dating back to its 2010 season.

The Bruins won their first six games and beat No. 14 Michigan State on Friday night.

The win snapped a three-game losing streak to the Spartans.

The victory over the Wolverines extended Boston College to its longest win streak of the season and tied the program record for longest streak at home.

The longest win streaks at BC are: 0-0, 0-2, 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8.

Stanford was ranked as high as No. 7 in the coaches poll.

The Cardinal (10-0) is now 3-1 in Pac-12 play, including a 10-0 record at home, with the win over Miami.

Stanford has won at least three games in a season twice this season.

It has won four consecutive games in the Pac-10 Conference and three of the past four, including its past four road games, with three of those wins coming in conference games.

The Stanford offense has scored more than 200 points for the first time since its start of the 2015 season, and has surpassed the 200-point mark in all seven games.

The Cardinal, however, has struggled to score against ranked opponents this season, averaging just 69.7 points per game in the last three games.

That has been partly due to injuries to starting quarterback Garrett Gilbert and safety Matt Leinart.

The team has allowed a total of 12 touchdowns to opponents this year, including six interceptions, and four have come in the Cardinal’s last five games.

Stanford’s last loss was a 28-17 defeat to Arizona on Nov. 5.

The Bruins’ last loss to a ranked opponent was to Oregon State on Oct. 31.

The Beavers (11-1) have won five straight games, including the last five by a combined eight points.

The two losses came against Michigan State and Colorado.
