Report: Chase Rettig Will Start For Boston College Saturday Against Notre Dame

According to the Boston Globe's Mark Blaudschun, Boston College will start true freshman Chase Rettig Saturday night against Notre Dame, with sophomore Mike Marscovetra and former starter Dave Shinskie battling for the back-up role. The team is expected to make the announcement official on Wednesday. 

According to the team source, "Chase took about 80 percent of the snaps (with the first team) in practice [on Tuesday].''

Rettig is the second true freshman to start for the Eagles in the last two years ... The 6-foot-4 inch 205 pound Rettig enrolled at BC last January after passing up overtures from Tennessee, UCLA, USC, Arizona and Arizona State. Rettig, who lives in San Clemente, Calif. was regarded as the BC QB of the future when he came East last winter. Spaziani and offensive coordinator Gary Tranquill had hoped to bring him along at a slow and steady pace, which meant redshirting this season and then competing for the job next spring and summer.

The Eagles host the Irish Saturday night at 8 P.M. ET.
