Boston College Vs. Northwestern: Two-Deep Rosters Released

If all the preview specials and 'round the clock coverage of opening weekend weren't enough to convince you that college football season is upon us, the depth charts for the de-facto Big-10/ACC Challenge match-up between Boston College and Northwestern at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, MA certainly will.

For BC, there is some notable movement on the roster. The first, and most crucial, is that back-up tailback Andre Williams will be available and start the game in the absence of leading rusher Montel Harris (knee) despite a sprained ankle suffered in a recent scrimmage. He'll be backed up by redshirt freshman Tahj Kimble who will be making his first career appearance for the Eagles. Junior Rolandan "Deuce" Finch is not on the two-deep but may see time as well.

More on the two-deep roster's after the jump.

Another source of concern for BC is in the secondary where both of their projected starting safeties have been kicked off the team or transferred.  The listed starters for the game are Everett, MA native Jim Noel and the star of training camp, walk-on junior Hampton Hughes

For Northwestern, the only real drama was whether Heisman hopeful Dan Persa would be listed as the starting QB for the Wildcats.  While he is listed on the two-deep, head coach Pat Fitzgerald added a layer of intrigue to the proceedings yesterday when he announced that Persa would be a game-time decision on Saturday.

Persa is widely expected to play in the season opener, but is also widely believed to be at less than 100 percent as he continues his recovery from a ruptured achilles tendon suffered last season.
