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.

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.

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.
Oct 14 - 2:56 PM

Boston College senior RB Jonathan Hilliman rushed for 89 yards and two touchdowns on 23 carries in Saturday's 27-8 victory over Central Michigan.

His third touchdown came on a three-yard scoring reception. Hilliman entered the day with only one touchdown through four games. He's rushed for over 100 yards in just one game, and has been in an even timeshare with true frosh A.J. Dillon since Week 2.
Sep 30 - 4:25 PM

Boston College freshman RB A.J. Dillon had 120 yards and a touchdown on 25 carries in a 27-8 win over Central Michigan on Saturday.

On National Signing Day back in February, Boston College HC Steve Addazio told reporters that the three-star Dillon would remind BC fans of Andre Williams. Dillon ingratiated himself into the offense quickly and was given 15 or more carries in each of the team's past four games. He's received almost as many carries this year as veteran starter Jon Hilliman. The 2-3 Eagles get Virginia Tech next week.
Sep 30 - 4:20 PM

Boston College sophomore LB Max Richardson (knee) has been ruled out indefinitely.

Richardson (6'0/230) went down injured in Saturday's loss to Clemson, requiring assistance to leave the field of play -- he could not put weight on his injured leg. In four games this season, the sophomore linebacker has registered 23 tackles and 0.5 sacks. It is not yet known whether he will have an opportunity to return before the end of the campaign.
Sep 28 - 1:16 PM

Boston College senior LB Connor Strachan (knee) will miss the remainder of the season.

Huge loss for the Eagles, as Strachan was the team's leading tackler in 2016, piling up 80 tackles (11.0 for loss), 3.5 sacks and a forced fumble a year ago. The 6-foot, 230-pounder suited up for BC's opener against Northern Illinois, but has not played in any of the three games since. Kevin Bletzer, John Lamot and Ty Schwab will likely serve as the team's starting linebackers with Strachan down for the count and Max Richardson (knee) out indefinitely.
Sep 28 - 12:51 PM

Boston College redshirt senior WR Charlie Callinan will miss an extended period of time with a foot injury.

Callinan has started 31 games in his career and caught seven passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns in his last game. The injury was announced before the game against Clemson, but no further details we disclosed.

Pro Football Focus' Steve Palazzolo compares Boston College senior edge rusher Harold Landry to Atlanta Falcons DE Vic Beasley.

According to PFF's metrics, Landry was better as a pass rusher and a better overall player last year than Beasley was in his final collegiate season at Clemson in 2014. Beasley led the NFL in sacks in 2016. "Both Landry and Beasley are explosive players who use their athleticism to challenge the edge against opposing offensive tackles, and therein lies their biggest similarity," Palazzolo wrote. Last year, Landry had a similar rate of pressures to the outside shoulder of opposing OTs as Beasley did in 2014. "Beasley did little by way of the bull rush and he has had to work on his inside counter moves, while Landry's scouting report will likely read the same come next April," Palazzolo wrote. "Like Beasley, Landry can diversify his skill set and improve against the run (Beasley graded at 79.8 in 2014, Landry at 80.2), but he'll also be in the first-round mix as he has 10-sack potential at the next level."

Boston College senior RB Jonathan Hilliman rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

Hilliman rushed for 860 yards as a freshman but has been limited to 198 and 542 yards, respectively, over the past two years due to injuries. Through three games, he's rushed for 203 yards on 3.7 YPC. He's yet to reach the end zone.
Sep 20 - 12:32 PM

Boston College redshirt senior WR Charlie Callinan caught seven passes for 82 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's loss to Notre Dame.

He entered the game with only two catches total on the season. In Boston College's run-centric, points-averse offense, Callinan finished with 24 receptions for 286 yards last season.
Sep 18 - 12:48 PM

Boston College announced senior C Jon Baker (knee) will miss the rest of the 2017 season.

Baker is suffering from an unspecified knee injury he sustained late in the season-opening win over Northern Illinois. Baker could potentially return next year because he has not used his redshirt.
Sep 9 - 1:16 PM

Boston College senior C Jon Baker (knee) will not play in Saturday's game against Wake Forest.

Baker (6'3/300) had started 27 consecutive games prior to finally being forced to miss one due to his current knee injury, which he suffered in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' win over NIU on Saturday. While Boston College could move some pieces around on the line to help fill in for Baker, true freshman Alec Lindstrom is looking like a leading candidate for the start at this juncture. There is no current timetable for Baker's return.
Sep 7 - 7:39 PM

Boston College senior RB Jonathan Hilliman rushed for 58 yards on 25 carries in Friday's 23-20 win over Northern Illinois.

We hope you spent Friday evening with friends, family and well-wishers, rather than watch this game. It was a tough one to stomach offensively. Hilliman led the Eagles with his 58 yards rushing while averaging a disturbingly low 2.3 YPC. The two squads barely surpassed 700 total yards of offense combined. More of the same could be coming when Boston College plays Wake Forest a week from Saturday.
Sep 2 - 1:19 AM

Boston College HC Steve Addazio said that there is a "plan in place" at quarterback for Saturday's game against NIU on Saturday, but would not divulge that plan.

"There's no competitive advantage for me in any way, shape, or form, to show everything what we want to do, why we want to do it," Addazio said. Senior Darius Wade and redshirt freshman Anthony Brown have been duking it out for starting honors during preseason camp.
