Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon ran for 200 yards on 24 carries with two scores in a 39-16 victory over Connecticut on Saturday.

What a run Dillion is on. Over his last five games, he's run for 272, 84, 149, 196, and 200 yards. Not bad for anyone, much less a freshman. His first touchdown was a 53-yarder that gave the Eagles a 14-3 lead over the hapless Huskies, and he scored again on a 20-yarder that made it 33-3 Boston College. Dillon just might be the Freshman Of The Year in the ACC. The 6-5 Eagles are going bowling, and will finish their regular season against Syracuse next week.

Boston College redshirt freshman QB Anthony Brown (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.

Brown suffered the ever-terrifying non-contact injury on a cut in Saturday's 17-14 loss against North Carolina State. Darius Wade replaced Brown, and will presumably do so going forward. Brown flashed some dual-threat potential in 10 games, completing 51.9-percent of his passes for 1,367 yards and an 11/9 TD/INT rate. In addition, he rushed for 210 yards and caught a 25-yard touchdown pass.
Nov 13 - 2:08 PM

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon rushed for 196 yards and a touchdown on 36 carries in the school's 17-14 loss to NC State on Saturday.

Dillon's 66-yard touchdown displayed him maximizing a wide open space thanks to jet sweep action. It's been quite a first season for Dillon, and this makes it two straight games of over 140 rushing yards.

Boston College redshirt freshman QB Anthony Brown sustained a potentially significant knee injury in Saturday's game against NC State.

Brown sustained the injury while running the ball in the first half. After sustaining the injury, he required the use of crutches on the sideline and was seen icing his knee. It's incredibly unlikely that he's able to return to the contest. Darius Wade figures to be the man the rest of the way out on Saturday.
Nov 11 - 2:16 PM

Boston College senior DE Harold Landry (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against NC State.

Landry (6'3/245) sat out the Eagles' win over Florida State back on October 27 due to the ankle injury. Even with a bye week to rest up, he's still not back to full health. The star senior has recorded 38 tackles (8.5 for loss) and five sacks in eight games this season. Wyatt Ray is listed as Landry's backup on the depth chart and could see an expanded workload versus the Wolfpack if Boston College is down its stud defensive lineman on Saturday.
Nov 9 - 1:33 PM

Boston College junior DE Zach Allen has made 37 stops in 2017, the most of any edge defender in the FBS this year.

Allen (6'4/280) has really seen his stock rise, and leading all edge players in stops is a pretty good example of how well he's played the run this season. Most of the attention goes to teammate and fellow edge player Harold Landry -- and he's certainly the better NFL draft prospect at this point -- but Allen gives the Eagles a second potential top 100 pick on the line.
Nov 3 - 8:00 PM

Boston College senior DE Harold Landry did not play during Friday's loss to Florida State.

Boston College still won big, but this is an injury to monitor. Beat writers described Landry's ailment as an ankle injury. He was listed as probable heading into the contest.
Oct 28 - 10:40 AM

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon ran 33 times for 149 yards and a touchdown in a 35-3 blowout win over Florida State on Friday.

Wow. Dillon has been a revelation for the Eagles' offense this year, and was impressive in this route of the Seminoles. There's obvious power in the 6-foot-1, 239-pound bruiser, but he's light on his feet, and he can make people miss. His touchdown was a four-yard blast that gave BC a 21-0 lead late in the second quarter. Boston College and Dillon will look to clinch a bowl trip next week against NC State.
Oct 27 - 11:21 PM

Boston College junior DE Zach Allen "has proven to be a legitimate NFL prospect" this fall, writes Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

The 6-foot-4, 280-pounder essentially receives no pub playing across from Harold Landry, but Allen actually has more tackles and just as many TFL as Landry this fall. "Allen’s impressive physical skills are only bettered by his non-stop intensity, as he’s constantly around the ball making plays," Pauline wrote. "Though I’ve heard no mention he’ll enter the 2018 NFL Draft, we presently grade Allen as a top-125 prospect."
Oct 24 - 3:47 PM

Boston College redshirt freshman QB Anthony Brown completed 19-of-24 passes for 275 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 41-10 win over Virginia.

Holy offensive explosion, Batman. The normally dormant attack of the Eagles has lit the world on fire over the past two weekends, putting up a combined 86 points in victories over Louisville and Virginia. Brown's three touchdown passes marked a season-high. While we don't see the Eagles continuing to play like peak Oklahoma State on offense, they'll try for a third consecutive 40-point showing against Florida State next weekend. That figures to be a challenge.
Oct 21 - 5:15 PM

Boston College redshirt senior WR Charlie Callinan (foot) is probable for Saturday's game against Virginia.

Callinan has been out with the foot injury since the Sept. 18 loss to Notre Dame. It was an unfortunate time to suffer it, as Callinan posted a career-best 7-82-2 line against the Irish.
Oct 20 - 4:10 PM

Boston College redshirt freshman QB Anthony Brown (upper body) is probable for Saturday's game against Virginia.

Brown exited stage left in Saturday's thrilling win over Louisville after sustaining an upper-body injury in the third quarter. Darius Wade played out the remainder of that victory in his place and could see field-time versus the Cavaliers on Saturday even if Brown is able to go.
Oct 19 - 1:56 PM

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon was named the Walter Camp National Player of the Week on offense for his performance in Saturday's win over Louisville.

Dillon (6'1/239) dismantled the Cardinals with 272 yards rushing and four touchdowns in Saturday's upset victory. Among the damage, 11-yard and 75-yard scoring gallops in the fourth quarter. Dillon has rushed for 608 yards and six touchdowns overall this season, including 100-yard efforts in two of his last three games.
Oct 15 - 11:33 AM

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon erupted for 272 yards rushing and four touchdowns on 39 carries in Saturday's 45-42 win over Louisville.

The Eagles pounded the rock with Dillon and then some. He scored on a pair of short runs in the second and third quarters, but it was the final stanza where he truly made his mark. In the fourth quarter, the 6-foot-1, 239-pound true freshman went off for touchdown runs of 11 and 75 yards -- both in the first five minutes of the quarter. While Dillon has been held under 60 yards rushing in five contests this season, he has come on strong of late, surpassing 100 yards rushing in two of his last three games.
Oct 14 - 4:14 PM

Boston College redshirt freshman QB Anthony Brown left Saturday's game against Louisville due to a shoulder injury.

Brown injured his shoulder in the third quarter. He was subsequently taken to the locker room for examination before returning to the sideline. Darius Wade took over for the 6-foot-1, 210-pounder after he exited stage left.
