With freshman quarterback Chase Rettig stilled hobbled with a sprained ankle, Boston College head coach Frank Spaziani has decided to go with sophomore Dave Shinskie to start Saturday against North Carolina State.
Meanwhile, Shinskie, who was the starter until Saturday, and Marscovetra, who relieved Rettig, both were hoping for another chance to start, especially Shinskie.
"This was a wake-up call for Dave Shinskie,’’ said Shinskie. "We need a leader on this team. We need a leader on offense. What we need is for someone to step up. I want to be that guy.’’
