Boston College football is 2-0 but battling through adversity as starting quarterback Phil Jurkovec is down for likely the rest of the season after wrist surgery. Dennis Grosel stepped in during last week’s game and will start today, marking the third consecutive season that he’s come in to be the starter after QB1 went down with an injury.
The degree of difficulty increases slightly today from the two openers against Colgate and UMass, as BC takes the Acela Express to Philadelphia to take on Temple.
The Owls are 1-1 after a 45-24 win last week over Akron, bouncing back from a season-opening shellacking at the hands of Rutgers. Today’s game is their home opener at Lincoln Financial Field.
