Two Eagles will be soaring today in a post season exhibition game. Today quarterback Tyler Murphy and tackle Ian Silberman will be representing the Eagles in the Medal of Honor Bowl at the Citadel in Charleston, South Carolina. The game can be found on NBC Sports Network at 2:30 Eastern Time.
Tyler Murphy, who found himself this year at the Heights, will get another opportunity to show off his arm and lightning speed moves in front of scouts and fans. Murphy finished the season with 1179 yards rushing and 11 touchdowns, along with 1623 yards passing with 13 touchdowns. He will be well known in the history books of the Heights for his game against USC where he lit up the vaunted Trojans on the way to BC's monumental upset over the then #9 USC squad.
Ian Silberman also a Florida transfer who became a stalwart on a BC offensive line. He finished the season 15th in the country in rushing, just a year after losing Heisman candidate Andre Williams. You can check out the rest of the rosters out here, there are quite a few ACC reps on both rosters.
Best of luck to both of the Eagles, and check out the game, it gives you one more opportunity to see Tyler Murphy and Ian Silberman. And it's a good appetizer for the NFL playoff games later this evening.
