How will jurkovec impact BC’s game against ECU?
Prediction: There are a few factors that could impact this game. First and foremost is the health of Jurkovec. If his hand is healed, and say he is 90%, the Eagles should feast on the ECU defense, that has had troubles with coverage and broken tackles. But if BC’s offensive line is filled with new names, that could be a challenge as well.

When ECU Has the Ball
Holton Ahlers has been ECU’s starting quarterback the last few seasons as the Pirates had one of the better aerial attacks in the AAC. Ahlers passed for 3,129 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions this season.
When Boston College Has the Ball
Boston College quarterback Phil Jurkovec missed most of the 2021 season due to a wrist injury, which led the Eagles ranking 106th in the nation with 184.8 passing yards per game. However, Jurkovec is expected to start the Military Bowl, which should improve the Eagles’ offense in a major way.
The Eagles’ pass defense ranked fourth in the country this season as they only gave up 173.5 yards per game. Boston College should neutralize the Pirates’ aerial attack, although trying to stop Mitchell could present a significant issue.
Why Boston College can cover
The Eagles have been formidable when at full strength, but much of their struggles can be attributed to myriad injury issues at key positions throughout the season. Notably, quarterback Phil Jurkovec has seen action in just six games while dealing with various ailments.
Why East Carolina can cover
The Pirates have an explosive and varied offense led by a veteran quarterback, and they can be difficult to stop when they get rolling. East Carolina scored at least 29 points in each of its last four victories, only coming up short of that mark in a 35-13 loss to playoff-bound Cincinnati in the regular-season finale.

Opening Odds Analysis
This line drifted as high as Boston College -3.5 before settling in with the Eagles as field-goal favorites at the time of writing. BC hasn’t been favored by more than 3 points since mid-September, while ECU has covered five of its last six as an underdog of 3 points or more.
Boston College News & Notes
It’s been an up-and-down season for Boston College, beginning with an early injury to star quarterback Phil Jurkovec that caused him to miss six games. The Eagles won their first two games after he returned, but then closed the regular season with home losses to Florida State and Wake Forest that killed any hopes of playing in a bigger bowl game.
East Carolina News & Notes
This season has already been a huge success for ECU, which hadn’t been to a bowl game since 2014 and hadn’t won more than four games since 2015. The Pirates finished the regular season by winning four of their last five games, including a dramatic 38-35 win at Navy on a last-second 54-yard field goal by Owen Daffer.
How Boston College Will Cover
The Eagles won four of Jurkovec’s six starts this season and are 10-6 SU in his two years under center. If the Eagles embrace the opportunity to build some momentum going into next year, their offense should be too much for the Pirates to overcome.
How East Carolina Will Cover
ECU has defied the odds all year, going 3-3 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six games as an underdog. The Pirates should also be the hungrier of these two programs as they make their first bowl appearance in seven years, compared to a BC squad that had much higher hopes coming into the campaign.
