Boston College Spring Game: What To Watch For On Saturday

With the unofficial start of a new college football season beginning on Saturday when Boston College hosts its 19th annual Jay McGillis Memorial Spring Football Game at 1 p.m. EDT, you may not know what to watch for on Saturday.

Luckily, we have Heather Dinich, who covers all things ACC football for ESPN.com, who guides us through the plot lines to look out for on Saturday afternoon.

First and foremost, Dinich discusses the effect that the Eagles' new offensive coordinator, Kevin Rodgers, will have on sophomore quarterback Chase Rettig and the offense.

How the offense looks under first-year coordinator Kevin Rogers. Rogers has a reputation for developing quarterbacks, and Chase Rettig should be better in his second season as a full-time starter -- if he and his teammates grasp the new playbook quickly. Rettig threw for 1,238 yards, six touchdowns and nine interceptions as a true freshman last season.    

Dinich also points out that fans should keep a close eye on the secondary and the new-look offensive and defensive lines. To read the rest of Heather Dinich's spring game preview, click here.
