Checking in on select Boston College player and team statistics through the first three weeks of the season.
Amidon is having a great statistical year already this season, averaging 122 yards per game. He ranks 4th nationally in receiving yards per game, tied for no. 8 for receptions per game (8.33) and 59th nationally in All-Purpose yards with 121.67 yards per game.
The junior QB is 18th nationally in Total Offense and 63rd in Passing Efficiency (minimum 15 attempts / game).
Picking up where Luke Kuechly left off, Nick Clancy leads the nation in both total (43) and solo tackles (28). He's averaging 14.33 a game. This is what happens when your defense is on the field for 100 plays in a single game.
Like Clancy, KPL has also managed to rack up the tackles, averaging 12 a game. That's tied for 7th nationally. Pierre-Louis has 21 solo, 15 assists and 36 in total.
Was the #Freese4Groza campaign one year too early? Perhaps. Did I just jinx this for the rest of the year? Probably. Freese is tied for 4th nationally in field goals, averaging 2.33 FGM a game over the first three games. He's a perfect 7-for-7 on the year.
Freese also ranks tied for 39th nationally in Scoring, averaging 9.67 points a game.
Levano is ranked 18th in the nation in punting with a minimum of 3.6 punts per game. His 5.0 punts per game have averaged 45.33 yards per attempt.

Boston College is no. 15 in Passing Offense, but no. 109 in Rushing Offense.
Boston College is no. 17 in the nation in Pass Efficiency Defense.
