Boston College Head Coach Steve Addazio called Clemson “the greatest team he’s ever seen” but he hopes the group he brings into Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill Saturday night can be helped by their home crowd.
Addazio neglected to provide a clear update on running back AJ Dillon, who has been hampered by a nagging ankle injury over the course of the season. Dillon has missed all or parts of four games as a result of the injury, and Addazio said that his status won’t change dramatically over the course of the week.
The BC Head Coach says he wants to play “fast and physical” with a scheme that emphasizes the ground game and their tight ends, but may add some new wrinkles this week. Addazio believes that you can’t ultimately change your identity to win a game against a talented team like Clemson.
After hearing the praise heaped upon his team by Addazio, Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney said he appreciated the compliments, but urged his team to “not take the cheese” and buy into their own hype.
