Record edge goes to the Eagles, mainly for some really good victories against VA Tech & Clemson. The Spartans have to count losses to Iowa and Northwestern, two games that they lost by a TD.

BC was in the #2 spot before their slide, dropping 3 games in the last 5 weeks of the season - that doesn't bode well. Michigan State had a rough October but rebounded nicely to finish the season.

The Line: Michigan State +5.5

The Story: Another showcase game for Matt Ryan - how many of those does he get? Jeez. Both of these teams will have some rebuilding to do next year.

The Call: Boston College by 10

The Result: Boston College 24-21 = Not the prettiest game, but another close one. The Eagles take their bowl win streak to 8.
