The Eagles’ quarterback depth took a hit Wednesday, as it was reported that Matt McDonald has transferred to Bowling Green. There, the redshirt sophomore will reunite with former BC offensive coordinator Scot Loeffler.
BC hosted College GameDay last Saturday for the first time since 2009, and—despite the loss to No. 2 Clemson—the excitement surrounding the program rivaled that of decade’s past.
During his Monday weekly press conference, head coach Steve Addazio told reporters that both Anthony Brown and A.J. Dillon are day-to-day, heading into Week 12.
Michael Walker returned a punt 74 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter, but the Eagles managed just 113 total yards of offense and eight first downs in a dismal performance against the Tigers and their excellent defensive line.
Anthony Brown left the game in the first quarter with an internal body injury, and the Eagles never really found an on offensive rhythm, recording just 113 total yards against Clemson hours after hosting College GameDay.
A.J. Dillon looked vulnerable for the first time as a starter, Anthony Brown threw four interceptions, and the entire BC team—both offense and defense—was given a reality check in West Lafayette, Ind.
Starting quarterback Anthony Brown took a preseason-high 30 or so snaps, and the running back corps—ranging from A.J. Dillon to John Fadule—paced the first and second-team offenses, from start to finish.
Anthony Brown was hit or miss in his first scrimmage of training camp, and, as a whole, the offense was out of sync for the majority of the exhibition—Jim Reid’s defense capitalized, recording four interceptions on the day.
Backup quarterback Matt McDonald picked up right where he left off this spring in BC’s first scrimmage of training camp, but, as a whole, the team’s performance was tainted by 10 penalties.
Redshirt freshman Matt McDonald threw three touchdowns, outplaying his counterpart, E.J. Perry, and Elijah Robinson hauled in a pair of highlight-reel catches, effectively stealing the show in the annual exhibition game.
