BOSTON (AP) Boston College doesn't have a player who can replace Heisman Trophy finalist Andre Williams.
So the Eagles will rotate three players at running back. And quarterback Tyler Murphy can carry the ball, too.
Murphy was the leading rusher in BC's season-opening victory over UMass on Saturday. He carried the ball 13 times for 118 yards and a touchdown on a 1-yard naked...

Boston College took a positive step toward building on last season’s success with a 30-7 win over in-state rivals UMass at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.
It was the season opener for both schools.
The Minutemen kept the score close for much of the game and trailed only 6-0 at halftime. The Eagles’ offense exploded for 24 points in the second half en route to an easy win.
FOXBOROUGH–”A work in progress.” Separated by about a 100 yards and 15 minutes on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium Boston College coach Steve Addazio and Massachusetts coach Mark Whipple each used the phrase following BC’s 30-7 season-opening win over the…Read more →

Hi everyone. I’m sure you’ve missed me. For those who forget/don’t know me, I took a break writing here to write for CBS Sports/247 for a little bit. I left a few months back and haven’t written much thanks to the birth of my son. Here he is with a message for Boston College on Friday. As you parents know life gets pretty hectic the first few months. Now that he’s six...

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) The statue of Doug Flutie outside Boston College's Alumni Stadium was playfully defaced this week when someone - presumably by a UMass supporter - draped a Minuteman jersey over it. Flutie retweeted a photo with the comment: ''Ew.''
That's probably the first time in a long while that the folks in Chestnut Hill gave much thought to their...

Former Boston College quarterback Doug Flutie has an awesome statue on campus commemorating his epic Hail Mary pass. UMass fans decided to troll him and the Eagles by putting a UMass jersey on it and Flutie wasn’t thrilled. Ew pic.twitter.com/2lL54zBAoc — DOUG FLUTIE (@DougFlutie) August 27, 2014

BOSTON (AP) Heisman Trophy finalist Andre Williams is gone. So is top receiver Alex Amidon, and the top two tacklers from Boston College's defense last year, Steele Divitto and Kevin Pierre-Louis. Even quarterback Chase Rettig, a four-year starter, will be missed.
So when BC coach Steve Addazio thinks about his first year in Chestnut Hill, when the Eagles improved by five wins...

UMass and Boston College will meet for the first time as FBS teams at Gillette Stadium on Saturday and it seems like UMass has fired the first shot in what it obviously hopes will be a heated rivalry.
It was reported on Tuesday that a maroon no. 3 UMass jersey was draped over Boston College’s Doug Flutie statue and a photo of the UMass-ed Flutie was trumpeted by Gold Group, a marketing...
CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — When examining the Boston College Eagles football team entering 2014, one question seems to stand above the rest.
Who will fill the voids left by Andre Williams and Chase Rettig?
Even without the aforementioned pair of graduates who stood above the offensive charts over their careers, energy and optimism are easily found as second-year...
The Minutemen have fired their shots.
In anticipation of the “Battle for the Bay State” football game, one UMass fan — or maybe a few — decided to switch Doug Flutie’s allegiances. The statue of the legendary Boston College quarterback was discovered Tuesday morning wearing a UMass jersey.

Boston College added a transfer this week in 6-5 Aaron Brown. Brown has already graduated and will be eligible immediately for the Eagles next season.
Brown will likely start at shooting guard for Boston College after averaging 10 points per game and 4.3 rebounds per game for Southern Miss last season. Brown shot nearly 46% of his shots from long range and made 39% of his 3 point...
Southern Miss transfer Aaron Brown has committed to Boston College, sources told CBSSports.com.
The 6-5 wing -- who was granted his release last week -- will be eligible immediately next season since he's already graduated, and will likely be the Eagles' starting shooting guard alongside returnee Olivier Hanlan.
Boston College football coach Steve Addazio made the expected endorsement of Tyler Murphy as the Eagles’ new starting quarterback for their season-opener against UMass next week. That was a no brainer. Murphy, a graduate-student transfer from Florida, was the leader…Read more →

The 2015 class kicks off with the commitment of 6-5 SG Terance Mann
Two weeks ago SG Terance Mann (Tilton, NH) cut his list to six: Indiana, Marquette, Boston College, Arizona State, and URI (his mother is the head coach of the women's team). Tonight he ended the suspense by committing to Florida State.
Phase One of the pre-season is now over for Boston College. Another scrimmage on Wednesday morning, marked improvement in holding onto the ball by the offense, but… Yes, there is a but. Here’s what we know about the Eagles in…Read more →
