AJ Dillon had 242 yards and three scores, David Bailey had 172 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and the Eagles used a 34-point second quarter to roll over the Orange on Saturday afternoon.
The Eagles surrendered 664 yards of offense, had a backup quarterback take over in the second quarter, and came up just short of beating a Louisville side that was on a nine-game ACC losing streak.
Behind 272 rushing yards—154 of which belonged to AJ Dillon—BC was able to bounce back from the Kansas loss and pull away from Rutgers in the second half for a 30-16 win.
Here’s the good, the bad, and the ugly from BC’s disappointing 48-24 loss to Kansas, a team that had gone winless in its last 48 road games against Power Five opponents.
Behind 518 yards of offense, BC stormed out to a 21-0 lead against the visiting Spiders and never looked back, rolling to a 45-13 win in which AJ Dillon and Anthony Brown accounted for three scores apiece.
The last time Boston College football started the season with a game against an ACC opponent, the Eagles didn’t have a happy ending. BC lost a heartbreaker to Georgia Tech, 17-14, in Dublin, Ireland to start the 2016 season. This year, however, with its season opener against Virginia Tech, the story was different. The Eagles…
There’s a new kicker from Temple, familiar faces in the backfield, and several intriguing pieces in the receiving game—including a dynamic freshman and pair of running backs that trained at a new position.
BC hosted its first scrimmage of training camp on Saturday. The rust was there, but a handful of Eagles, including wide receiver C.J. Lewis and placekicker Aaron Boumerhi, turned heads.
Boumerhi, who saw his 2018 season cut short due to a hip injury, joins the Eagles seeking to return to his All-AAC Second Team level of play and should immediately factor in the starting kicker competition.
