DALLAS (AP) — SERVPRO First Responders Bowl: No. 23 Boise State (10-3) vs. Boston College (7-5), 1:30 p.m. EST (ESPN).
DALLAS (AP) — Boston College coach Steve Addazio will have his play-caller for one more game before Scot Loeffler takes over at Bowling Green for good.
Just think of the SERVPRO First Responders Bowl against No. 23 Boise State on Wednesday as a one-game reunion after Loeffler spent most of the past month getting ready for his new job.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College has extended the contract of football coach Steve Addazio through 2022.
Athletic Director Martin Jarmond made the announcement on Tuesday.
Addazio led the Eagles to a 7-2 record and a No. 17 ranking in The Associated Press Top 25 before losses in their last three regular-season games. They are scheduled to play Boise State in the First Responder Bowl in Dallas on Dec. 26.
BOSTON (AP) — Syracuse quarterback Eric Dungey is questionable for the regular-season finale, and Boston College coach Steve Addazio says that's not much comfort for him.
Because backup Tommy DeVito isn't exactly a pushover, either.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College coach Steve Addazio would like to see college football adopt some of the same rules that the NFL is using to protect quarterbacks.
Two days after starter Anthony Brown sustained an abdominal injury when 315-pound defensive lineman Christian Wilkins landed on him, Addazio said he'd be in favor of a rule like the one in the pro league that punishes a defender for coming down on the quarterback with his full weight.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College lost its chance to play for an Atlantic Coast Conference championship.
More important, the Eagles have lost their quarterback and it's not clear when they are getting him back.
For the second straight year, Anthony Brown was hurt just as BC was lining up for a late-season run, this time sustaining what coach Steve Addazio said were internal injuries on the team's first possession of Saturday night's game against second-ranked Clemson.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown was taken to a hospital with what his coach said were internal injuries after absorbing a crushing hit from 315-pound defensive lineman Christian Wilkins on the first series of the Eagles 27-7 loss to second-ranked Clemson on Saturday night.
BOSTON (AP) — AJ Dillon needed one play to let everyone know he was back.
The Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason player of the year broke around the left end for 25 yards.
From there, Boston College was on its way to an emotional victory in its annual Red Bandana game.
Dillon carried it 32 times for 149 yards and a touchdown, Anthony Brown threw for a score and ran for another and BC beat Miami 27-14 on Friday night.
Doug Flutie is returning to Boston College this week, along with plenty of his teammates for a celebration that will surely bring back memories of the Eagles' dramatic "Hail Flutie" win over Miami in 1984.
The reminder won't be pleasant for the Hurricanes.
But it's another return that could be a bigger problem.
BOSTON (AP) — David Bailey stood on the sideline waiting for his chance. When it came, he made Boston College forget about the loss of injured star running back AJ Dillon, if only for a little while.
Bailey ran for 112 yards and a touchdown, Travis Levy recovered a blocked punt in the end zone for a score for the second straight week and BC beat struggling Louisville 38-20 on Saturday.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College running back AJ Dillon is out for Saturday's game against Louisville, the second straight week he's sidelined with a left ankle injury.
The Atlantic Coast Conference's preseason player of the year was injured in the third quarter of a victory over Temple on Sept. 29. He had the ankle taped that day, tried running on the sideline, but didn't return.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College coach Steve Addazio made a minor change on the depth chart last season.
It's had a major impact on the Eagles' offense with star running back AJ Dillon's playing time halted after a left ankle injury two weeks ago.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Boston College running back AJ Dillon won't play at No. 23 North Carolina State on Saturday after injuring his left ankle last weekend.
In an email Saturday, team spokesman Jason Baum said Dillon didn't make the trip to Raleigh.
The 6-foot, 245-pound sophomore ranks fifth in the Bowl Subdivision ranks in rushing at 130.4 yards per game. The Eagles are 9-3 in the 12 games since Dillon became the starter last October at Louisville.
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Boston College has been one of the nation's best big-play offenses behind the running of AJ Dillon. Yet it's unclear whether he'll be ready for Saturday's trip to face No. 23 North Carolina State and the Wolfpack's overhauled defense.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College coach Steve Addazio got his team back into full pads the next day after a loss at Purdue.
The sloppy 30-13 loss against the Boilermakers dropped the Eagles (3-1) out of the Top 25. They'll look to regroup Saturday in a nonconference matchup against Temple (2-2).
"When you feel like you gave one away, I tell them: 'It's like a diamond. Put it in your hand and clamp onto it really tight,'" he said. "We were in pads right away on Sunday. You've got to abruptly turn."
Boston College coach Steve Addazio sees a lot of his own program in Purdue.
From the close calls to the young lineups and the intricate passing game to the rebuilding process, Addazio has seen it all before.
Just last September, his team was the one stumbling along, searching for answers as it attempted to dig out of an early-season hole. Now the 23rd-ranked Eagles hit the road with a perfect record, their first ranking in a decade and a challenging test against the hungry Boilermakers.
BOSTON (AP) — Louisville is still looking for an heir to Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson. Boston College and Syracuse had quarterbacks coming back from injuries. Wake Forest was only looking for someone to fill-in while starter Kendall Hinton was suspended and may have found itself a long-term replacement
BOSTON (AP) — For a guy who's never been the head coach of a ranked team before, Steve Addazio knew just what to say.
The Boston College coach didn't want to talk about the Eagles' elevation to No. 23 in The Associated Press Top 25 this week, sticking with his belief that it is too early in the season to be worried about such things.
WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Anthony Brown kept beating Wake Forest's defensive backs with long throws. That helped Boston College beat the Demon Deacons — and Hurricane Florence.
Brown threw two of his career-high five touchdown passes to Jeff Smith, and BC defeated Wake Forest 41-34 on Thursday night in a game that started two hours early with the hurricane approaching.
"Everybody was on point with what we were doing and everybody was in tune with what we had to execute," Brown said.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College running back AJ Dillon surely could have piled up a bunch of yards after his quick start.
But Eagles coach Steve Addazio decided the short week and a big lead meant limited playing time for many of his starters.
Dillon ran for 149 yards and three touchdowns in less than a quarter, and Boston College beat old, in-state rival Holy Cross 62-14 Saturday in the schools' first meeting in 32 years.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College linebacker Connor Strachan heard the story from his uncle about 1984 Heisman Trophy winner Doug Flutie's grand exit after a game.
Steve Strachan, a running back on BC's 1984 squad, told his nephew that Flutie led the Eagles to a victory over Holy Cross in their regular-season finale, hopped on a helicopter to New York and picked up the Heisman.
"I heard he left the field in style," Strachan said. "That's pretty cool."
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College coach Steve Addazio was even surprised by Anthony Brown's first game back.
Brown threw for 279 yards and four touchdowns while playing just the opening half in his return from a season-ending knee injury, and the Eagles opened their 120th season with a 55-21 victory over in-state rival Massachusetts on Saturday.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College enters this season with some well-earned respect in the Atlantic Coast Conference after a strong finish last year.
But first the Eagles must deal with a pair of non-conference, intrastate games before they can show its deserved in ACC play, beginning with Massachusetts at home on Saturday.
"It's the first time in a while that we've gotten good press in the preseason," BC senior defensive lineman Zach Allen said.
BOSTON (AP) — AJ Dillon ran for 1,589 yards and 14 touchdowns for Boston College as a freshman behind a patchwork offensive line that was constantly shuffling in new players because of injury.
Give Dillon a full season behind some healthy blockers, and the Eagles think they can break into the top half of the Atlantic Coast Conference.
BOSTON (AP) — The rant was not surprising for Boston College coach Steve Addazio, a relentlessly optimistic salesman who is always pitching the potential of his program.
SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) — AJ Dillon didn't practice all week, didn't run, didn't do anything physically — until Saturday.
Boston College's stellar freshman tailback rushed for 193 yards and three touchdowns, and the resurgent Eagles beat Syracuse 42-14 in the season finale for both teams.
Boston College (7-5, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) has won five of six and won in the Carrier Dome for only the second time in six tries.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College coach Steve Addazio needs to replace his starting quarterback and figure out a way to turn things around after a loss to North Carolina State that snapped a three-game winning streak.
So the excitement about playing in Fenway Park is less on his mind than the logistics of playing a football game against UConn in a baseball stadium.
BOSTON (AP) — Boston College quarterback Anthony Brown left Saturday's loss against North Carolina State on crutches with a right leg injury.
The redshirt freshman, who has helped sparked BC's three-game winning streak that was snapped, crumpled to the ground in pain after making a cut deep in Wolfpack territory without being hit early in the second quarter. His right knee appeared to buckle on the cut.
