After sitting out for the middle chunk of the season, Deuce Finch returned to the backfield in a big role on Saturday against Virginia Tech. Finch brings the speed and necessary thump to move the chains, and that’s what he did. He rushed for 138 yards on 26 carries for a 5.3 yards per carry average. Finch also led the Eagles with five receptions for 53 yards, all on swing passes or screens.
Entering this past weekend of games, Boston College middle linebacker Nick Clancy led all of college football with 43 tackles. More than half of those were racked up in last Saturday’s contest against Northwestern, where his 24-tackle performance earned him ACC player of the week honors.

Although Luke Kuechly is an undeniable talent and has plenty of potential as an NFL prospect, he should not be a top-10 pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. Top-10 picks at any position, not just linebacker, are reserved for players who will come in and make a huge, sweeping impact on a franchise.
Yesterday, Alumni Stadium played host to a local area Pro Day with scouts from 27 NFL teams. The main attraction was former Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly.

Should he stay or should he go? Boston College football fans everywhere will ask this question in reference to star middle linebacker Luke Kuechly. As the semester comes to a close and the pressure of finals rises, rest assured that Kuechly is probably in a much more stressful situation: declaring for the spring’s NFL draft or remaining for his senior season.
The Eagles face a monumental task tonight in trying to stop one of the best signal callers in the ACC.
