"The ball was tipped and we always practice tip drills," said a wide-smiling Pierre-Louis, who wears No. 24. "I was happy to see on the Jumbotron -- (linebacker) Luke Kuechly and a couple of guys behind me. They had my back."

"We're obviously elated to get our first victory. It took us four weeks, but we finally got it," Spaziani said. "It's a tribute to the kids and coaches, who did a good job getting ready, and the kids did a good job compartmentalizing and doing what they need to do. Hopefully we can build on it and move forward."

Whether or not BC can put together another complete performance next weekend against Wake Forest remains to be seen, but Boston College can hold onto some pride and move forward knowing it can and did win. The next step is to do it against an FBS team.

Things weren’t going very well early offensively for the Minutemen. Rettig had as many completions (6) as UMass had offensive plays late in the opening quarter.

Boston College: Group effort, group sticker, as the Eagles' 45-17 win over UMass was their first win of the season. Quarterback Chase Rettig threw three touchdown passes, and BC's linebackers returned two fumbles for touchdowns. BC controlled this game from start to finish and left no doubt it was the better team.

“We made some plays on defense, we got some turnovers, we were able to throw the ball down the field a little bit. We ran the ball in spots,” said Spaziani, whose team is 1-3. “But it’s always the same deal. The problems are still there, but we have to manage our way through it. We know exactly what they are, the kids will keep working and maybe we can solve them and get some more victories.”

"First off, the rehab was more mental than anything. If you don’t have your mind set right you’re not going to come back the way you want to," Larmond said. "It was three or four days after, I got over all the crying. I spoke to the guys and I told them that I’m going to be OK. From then on out, I took an approach to the rehab and the game and gave it my all in summer workouts. I told the trainers to push me and don’t hold anything back. And, now, it’s a blessing from God that I was able to come back out and play the way I was before, actually."

"It felt great to be back on the field after missing five games. I just have to get myself back into game shape," said Harris. "It means a lot. Seeing my team fall to 0-3 and seeing how we responded so well (yesterday), it just meant a lot to me to be out with my teammates again."

"I had to become a student of the game rather than just a player. There are so many things you have to know in the college game to be successful," Kimble stated. "In high school, it was just ‘get the ball and run’. But now the game is faster, so you have to be able to know what the other team is doing before the play actually happens."

It's great to see Montel Harris back on the field. He is a fine young man and obviously a terrific player.
