Boston College vs. Maryland score: Eagles lead, 10-0, after ugly 1st half

Boston College leads Maryland, 10-0, after one half in Chestnut Hill. This is Frank Spaziani's best shot at an FBS win this season, and so far his defense has held firm against a Terp team ravaged by injuries at quarterback. The second quarter was a back-and-forth punt fest, with only four first downs between both teams.

BC added a field goal midway through the quarter to extend the lead to double digits. The scoring chance was set up by a Kieran Borcich interception of Maryland's true freshman quarterback, Caleb Rowe. The pick handed the ball to Chase Rettig and the offense just across midfield, inside Maryland territory. Rettig hit Johnathan Coleman for a 29-yard gain, but the BC drive would stall out there at the Terp 20. Kicker Nate Freese came on and split the uprights to push the Eagles' lead to 10-0.

Maryland had a shot to add points in the final minute, but Rowe was picked off by Justin Simmons at the four-yard line, ending the threat and preserving the first-half shutout.

Despite the lead, It's been an ugly game on the offensive side for both teams. Rettig finished the half 7-of-18 for 118 yards, while running back Andre Williams carried the ball 10 times for 43 yards. BC will receive the kickoff to open the second half.
