No. 20 Clemson Visits Boston College Looking for Another Road Win

No. 20 Clemson faces the second leg of back-to-back road games today when it plays at Boston College at 7 p.m.

The Tigers jumped four spots in the AP Top 25 this week after wins over Georgia Tech and Florida State. The latter was an 82-81 victory in Tallahassee, Fla., that notched double-digit ACC wins for first-place Clemson. 

Brad Brownell’s squad is 18-4 overall and 10-1 in the conference. 

The Eagles, led by former Clemson assistant coach Earl Grant, is 10-12 overall and 4-7 in ACC play. Boston College is coming off a 76-57 loss at No. 6 Virginia last Saturday.
