Still in search for their first FBS victory, Boston College goes into halftime with the lead for the second consecutive week. Last week they were beating the Virginia Tech Hokies 7-6 at halftime; this week they hold a commanding 21-3 lead over the Maryland Terrapins in College Park.
The Eagles are being carried by their running game. They already have 202 yards and three rushing touchdowns on 33 carries, led by Rolandan Finch who has carried the ball 24 times for 152 yards and touchdown. BC quarterback Chase Rettig has completed only four passes for 25 yards.
There has already been five turnovers between the Eagles and Terrapins – three for BC and two for Maryland – but there has only been one total penalty during the first half. Maryland has used two quarterbacks – Danny O'Brien and C.J. Brown – who are a combined 6-18 for 38 yards and two interceptions.
The second half of the game can be found on ESPN3.
