Boston College got that elusive first win, and left no doubt about who was the better team. I stand corrected. I thought this would be a close game, but the Eagles came together and put a stop to the losing. UMass had four turnovers, and BC quarterback Chase Rettig threw three touchdowns and no interceptions.
Whether or not BC can put together another complete performance next weekend against Wake Forest remains to be seen, but Boston College can hold onto some pride and move forward knowing it can and did win. The next step is to do it against an FBS team.
