After taking measure of Florida State’s high-powered offense, Boston College coach Steve Addazio saw no sense in trying to engage the Seminoles in a track meet in their Atlantic Coast Conference contest Saturday at 3:30 p.m. at Alumni Stadium.

The Eagles hope to achieve that through a ball-controlled offense featuring senior running back Andre Williams, a bruising 6-foot, 227-pounder who is averaging a league-leading 118.7 yards per game, to set the tone against the Seminoles’ defense, which ranks seventh in the nation.
