ACC Announces Football Players of the Week for October 1 (
Amidon caught eight passes for a career-high 193 yards and two touchdowns in Boston College's 45-31 loss to No. 17 Clemson, accounting for 52 percent of the team's receiving yardage (193 of 369) and 39 percent of its points. Additionally, the total marked the most receiving yards in a game for a Boston College player since Gerard Phelan had 226 receiving yards against Miami on Nov. 23, 1984.

Alex Amidon piles on numbers (
"He never stops, I think he was in on every snap and he played well in man coverage. He ran across the field on one touchdown and we hit him on a slant a lot. We knew going into the game there would be man coverage," Rettig added. "If people are going to use man against us, we are going to use the guys we have against him."

ACC Football Power Rankings, Oct. 1 (ACC Sports Journal)
Man, do I feel for Chase Rettig. The level of his play this season (323 yard passing/game, 9 TDs, 3 Ints) seems to validate the argument that he was a victim of BC’s revolving door of offensive coordinators during his first two seasons. Now Rettig finally is simpatico with offensive coordinator Doug Martin and … BC’s defense (9th in the ACC in total yards) and running game (12th in the ACC) have both gone downhill. If the Eagles can’t find a miracle cure on those fronts, then we’re likely looking at a coaching change when BC’s new AD takes over. And that could mean … wait for it … another offensive coordinator for Rettig.

Boston College (1-3) at Army (0-4). The Eagles have won five straight in the series, but this is their first meeting at West Point since 2000. Army comes into the game after losing to FCS Stony Brook and has one of the worst defenses in the nation. That should translate into a big day for Chase Rettig and Alex Amidon.
