Boston College Football Training Camp: BC Completes Third Scrimmage

Nate Freese connected on a 52-yard field goal to wrap up the Boston College Eagles football team's third scrimmage of the preseason on Sunday evening at Alumni Stadium. Freese also made a 27-yard field goal but missed his first field goal from 39 yards out.

This scrimmage featured "six game-simulated fourth-quarter situations in which the offense and defense squared off with limited time on the clock as well as a limited number of timeouts," according to

Chase Rettig was solid for the third straight scrimmage, throwing for 180 yards and a touchdown on 11-of-22 passing, but did throw an interception. The touchdown pass came on a 44-yard pass to wideout Alex Amidon, who finished with three catches for a team-high 91 yards.

Nick Clancy, a junior linebacker, had five tackles (four tackles for a loss) and one pass break up, and told following the scrimmage that he is happy playing inside the ball.

"I like playing inside the ball, being able to move left and right," Clancy said after the scrimmage. "It frees me up to make plays. I don't know what it was, but when I was lining up, I was just feeling comfortable."

Rolandan Finch led the Eagles' running backs with 44 yards on 13 carries and Andre Williams rushed for 42 yards on seven carries, including an 18-yard rush on the opening drive. Unfortunately, Williams was removed from practice due to an ankle injury, leaving the Eagles without their top two running backs (Montel Harris is the other).

Colin Larmond Jr. had three catches for 48 yards and Bobby Swigert had three catches for 22 yards. Linebacker Andre Lawrence had five tackles for the Eagles and defensive back C.J. Jones tallied four stops. Luke Kuechly was one of three players who had three tackles in the scrimmage.

BC opens the regular season against Northwestern on Saturday, September 3.
