It's rivalry week for the Eagles, as Boston College has the chance to knock out the #3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Can the Eagles pull off another miracle this weekend against their hated Catholic brothers?
Rettig is going to need to turn it around after five turnovers last weekend against a weak Wake Forest team. Notre Dame's defense is no joke, and he will need to be on his A game if he wants to succeed.
Andre Williams is out this week, apparently because of the abdominal injury from last weekend's game. However Deuce Finch has finally emerged from whatever purgatory Frank Spaziani sentenced him to after the Northwestern game. Dudeck is slotted as one, but if Spaz wants to win he needs to get Finch into the game. Dudeck is going to get killed against a physical team like the Irish.
Again the same as last week. I don't understand how Colin Larmond Jr. hasn't emerged back on the depth chart especially after Spaz announced that his three game suspension was over. I don't care what A Jersey Guy says, Larmond is a better player than most of these guys. Spaz says he wants to put the best team out there to win, but it's hard to believe with Larmond on the bench

Horrible news last week when Ian White went down with a lower leg injury. White was easily one of the best lineman on the team, and having him gone against a dominating defense like Notre Dame is a major blow. Seth Betancourt will get his chance to start.
Same as last week. No changes.
Borcich had a solid game last week, definitely better than what we have seen for the first part of the season. No Malachi Moore listed this week, which makes Spaz's move to burn his redshirt even more surprising.
- Bryan Murray - SR
- Dominic Appiah- SO
Bryan Murray has played very well at DT, and has made a few good plays. Like Wujciak as well.
Kevin Pierre-Louis is out again, battling yet another injury. Feel bad for the kid, he's a good player when he is healthy but he gets knocked around a lot. Steven Daniels, who has played admirably as a freshman will get the start. Like the play out of Tim Joy so far, he's a very physical linebacker who never gives up on a play. Hopefully Spaz cycles him in, he deserves the playing time.
Same as the previous three weeks. Not overly impressed with Notre Dame's passing game so they could step up this week. Then again, I haven't been overly impressed by BC's passing defense all season.
- Justin Simmons - FR
- C.J. Jones - SO
Simmons gets the nod this week over Jones, and he deserves it. Simmons has been possibly the best in the secondary the past few weeks. He's made good plays and lays a good hit, which is what you want out of your safety.
