BC head football coach Jeff Hafley spoke to the media on Sunday about the adjustments the Eagles need to make ahead of the second game of the season.
Play calling and offensive line struggles were BC’s downfall in the Eagles’ first opening-day loss in five years.
Rutgers scored on a 96–yard drive late in the fourth quarter to defeat BC 22–21 in both teams’ season opener.
Whether it was the 3-0 win for Wake Forest in 2015 or the 41-34 shootout victory for BC last season, Dave Clawson and Steve Addazio have seen some interesting results against each other.
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.
AJ Dillon tallied 150 yards on 32 carries, helping the Eagles overcome a sloppy performance and pull away late to beat Rutgers, 30-16, in its first road game of the season.
Head coach Steve Addazio cited his team’s need to improve on gaps on defense, coverages, tackling, as well as “throwing and catching” better on the offensive side of the ball.
