According to SI’s Pete Thamel, Boston College running back AJ Dillon will not be in today’s game at NC State.

If in fact Dillon didn’t make the trip to Raleigh, the Pack should still expect the Eagles to establish their running game. The gameplan likely doesn’t change, but maybe some of the risk for giving up huge runs is reduced. Hopefully they don’t let their guard down given this news, although it would have been nice to see just how much the State defense has improved as Dillon would have given them their biggest test of the year.
