Boston College 38, Weber State 20: Eagles Victorious In Mark Herzlich's Return

Weber State took an early 3-0 lead against Boston College in the 2010 season opener for both teams on Saturday, but the rest of the way, the Eagles dominated their FCS opponent and went on to win, 38-20.

BC took a 31-10 lead into the half and never looked back. Quarterback Dave Shinskie rebounded after throwing an interception on his first attempt and finished 10-of-20 with 187 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Running back Montel Harris helped pace the offense with 115 yards on 19 carries and a score.

The game was highlighted by the return of linebacker Mark Herzlich, who led the Eagles onto the field. Herzlich missed all of 2009 while he (successfully) battles Ewing's sarcoma, a rare form cancer.

He was involved in a pair of tackles late in the opening quarter, and played sparingly in his first game since Dec. 31, 2008.

Boston College hosts Kent State next week.
