Andre Williams aims to carry big load for Boston College (Boston Herald)

Boston College senior tailback Andre Williams performed light duty during yesterday's intensive practice at Alumni Stadium. Williams was the Eagles' featured ball carrier in Saturday's 24-14 win over Villanova.

Williams intends to resume that role when the Eagles host Wake Forest on Friday (8 p.m.) in their Atlantic Coast Conference opener.

"The defense that leads the nation in first downs allowed, yards allowed and passing yards allowed won't know until Friday just how good it is." Umm... what? Our offense is a "real test" now? We've grown up so fast! Next thing you know, someone will call it an "upset" if we lose to Wake... oh...

2. Wake Forest at Boston College. The Eagles will have home-field advantage and are coming off a 24-14 win over Villanova, but the Deacs had a strong defensive performance after a slow start in last week's 31-7 win over Presbyterian. Wake Forest forced six turnovers in that game, including three fumbles and three interceptions. It marks the Atlantic Division opener for both teams, so there will be conference race implications. Will it truly be an upset if the Deacs win? Meh, but it's the closest thing to it this week.

"Meh, it's the closest thing we've got." The official slogan of #TheRivalry

Junior Emma Plasteras scored two goals in BC's win, which improved their record to 3-0 on the season. They are likely to move up a bit from their current #19 national ranking.

BC alum Kristie Mewis had an assist on the US's first goal as the US women's national soccer team drubbed Mexico, 7-0.

Flashes: QB Chase Rettig, Boston College (The Rookie Scouting Portfolio)

I wouldn't bet my pocket change that Boston College senior Chase Rettig becomes a quality starter in the NFL. There are way too many factors to consider to draw a conclusion at this point. Yet there are qualities to his game that I like a lot that give him potential as a pocket passer. And yes, there are still pocket passers thriving in the NFL.

And of course...
