Boston College Vs. Northwestern: Ifeanyi Momah, Eagles Ready To Move On

CHESTNUT HILL - Ifeanyi Momah and the Boston College Eagles were dealt a setback before they could even gain their footing in the new college football season, losing to the Northwestern Wildcats, 24-17, in the season opener on Saturday afternoon at Alumni Stadium.

Momah had a monster game in the loss, racking up 157 receiving yards on eight catches, but is still confident that he and the Eagles can and will rebound.

"Honestly, even though the game just ended, we always have our heads up," Momah said after Saturday's game. "We are ready for the next week and for the next challenge. We're disappointed that we lost this game but it's not the end of the world. The season goes on and [we] are going to be a really good team at the end of the year, so we are going to start pushing, starting tomorrow at practice."

It's only been one game, but Momah looked comfortable with Eagles sophomore quarterback Chase Rettig, who threw for 375 yards on 22-of-44 passing, and confirmed that he and Rettig are on the same page.

"I think all our receivers are on the same page with Chase," said Momah. "He's done a really good job this offseason learning plays, his checks and everything as a quarterback. The receivers are just working hard to make it easier for him. Colin Larmond, Bobby Swigert, they all make good catches out there, working hard to make things as easy as possible for Chase and I think that he did a really good job today."
