Boston College wins one for Wounded Warrior Project on Military Appreciation Day

CHESTNUT HILL - Wins and losses are obviously important in sports, but as we saw at Alumni Stadium on Saturday, there are far more important things.

In support of the Wounded Warrior Project, the Boston College Eagles wore special America-themed jerseys during their game against the Maryland Terrapins, and the school honored them with Military Appreciation Day, something that coach Frank Spaziani thinks the team should do more of.

"We made a big deal out of it for our kids and it should be," Spaziani said. "These people that defend our country and do what they do, we all know that they need to be recognized. I think it's a great thing that Under Armor and college football has done. We probably should be doing more. There are some great people out there and we are thankful to them."

Boston College was able to win one for the military, too, posting a 20-16 victory over Maryland thanks to a last minute game-winning touchdown pass from Chase Rettig to Jonathan Coleman, giving the Eagles their first FBS victory of 2012 (and second win overall) and snapping a five-game losing streak.
