The Eagles have been practicing under the bubble over the past few weeks, and spring practice will conclude with Saturday's game. The game will feature the Eagles' offensive players squaring off against the defensive players with a specialized scoring system.

Boston College is coming off of a disappointing 4-8 season in which it missed the cut for bowl eligibility for the first time in 12 seasons. Despite the team's struggles, head coach Frank Spaziani will return for his fourth season at the helm. The lone bright spot of the year was junior linebacker Luke Kuechly, who was widely regarded as the best linebacker in college football. Kuechly will not return next season, though, forgoing his senior year to enter the 2012 NFL Draft.

Chase Rettig, the Eagles' starting quarterback last season, is heading into his junior year and is expected to get the starting job once more despite an up-and-down year. Montel Harris, a fifth-year senior who received an additional year of eligibility via medical hardship waiver from the NCAA, has been held out of spring practice due to a lingering knee injury but should by the season's start.
