Take 2: Best True Frosh: Boyd or Facyson (ESPN’s ACC Blog)

The fact Pitt is playing at Virginia Tech this week is the perfect time for us to debate who is the ACC’s best true freshman: Virginia Tech CB Brandon Facyson, or Pitt WR Tyler Boyd?

Dabo Swinney and his Tigers know who’s coming. Boston College’s offensive game plan is just about as straightforward as it comes: hand the ball to the nation’s rushing leader, Andre Williams, and keep handing it off until the opposition caves. Despite the fact that he has one of the ACC’s better receivers at his disposal, Chase Rettig, the Eagles’ fourth-year starting quarterback, put the ball in the air just 13 times in his team’s victory over Army…
