Boston College 45, UMass 17: Eagles Finally In The Win Column

New, 20 comments

Boston College quickly jumped out to a 24-7 first half lead en route to a 45-17 victory over the Massachusetts Minutemen. As they should have. The Eagles got two first half touchdowns from Chase Rettig -- a 1 yard TD pass to Lars Anderson and a 36 yard strike to Colin Larmond Jr. -- and a 3 yard touchdown run from Tahj Kimble. Nate Freese added a 26-yard FG in the first half.

In the second half, Rettig hit Larmond for his second touchdown of the game, a 37 yard jump ball that CLJ Jr. came down with. Clancy got the Boston College D in the scoring column on the year after returning a Jonathan Hernandez fumble 18 yards to paydirt to make it 38-10. KPL made it 45-10 after recovering a Kellen Pagel fumble (interception?) 96 yards for the defense's second touchdown of the day.

The best news of the day was the return of the preseason ACC Player of the Year to the field after missing the first three games of the season. Harris wasn't given his typical workload of 30-40 yards a carry, and was used sparingly throughout the day, finishing with 9 carries for 27 yards.

Enjoy the rest of the Florida State-Clemson game as the Seminoles and Tigers battle for early control of the ACC Atlantic Division title race. I'd say we want Florida State to win that game since we get them at home on Thursday night and hahahaha who am I kidding?

Leave your thoughts on the game below. Go Eagles!
