ESPN Believes Boston College Football Could Turn It Around In 2012
Boston College 21, Maryland 20: Yes, the Terps have home field advantage, but the Eagles have stability at their quarterback position, and the offensive line has been making gradual progress each week. Coach Frank Spaziani has kept this team in games, the Eagles are due for an ACC win, and this is the weekend they’ll get it.
"Central Florida 31, Boston College 20: UCF has a talented, athletic quarterback in Jeff Godfrey, and the Knights will cause the Eagles’ defense some problems. UCF allowed Charleston Southern to gain more than seven yards on only three of its 11 drives last week. BC’s offense took another hit when receiver Ifeanyi Momah suffered a season-ending injury."
A roundup of the days news and notes for the Boston College Eagles, leading up to their season opener against the Northwestern Wildcats.
MOST IMPROVED: Chase Rettig, Boston College. It’s not like he was bad last season, he just wasn’t ready. Throw into the fire as a true freshman against Notre Dame in the fourth game of the season, Rettig went on to complete 51.3 percent of his passes for 1,238 yards, six touchdowns and nine interceptions. The hire of Kevin Rogers as offensive coordinator should help elevate his game another level this fall. " -Heather Dinich on ACC QB Superlatives
