It was a good homecoming for Brian Kelly and a home wrecking for Boston College, as the Eagles fell 31-13 to Notre Dame. It wasn't exactly a surprise, considering how BC has struggled offensively, and it didn't help that true freshman Chase Rettig injured his ankle early in the game. Mike Marscovetra came in and threw two interceptions, but the Irish dominated the second half and BC didn't help itself with 11 penalties for 114 yards.
The Eagles now have back-to-back losses heading into back-to-back road trips against Atlantic Division opponents. NC State and Florida State are two of the top teams in the division. The good news? BC found a receiver in Bobby Swigert, who had seven catches for 137 yards and a touchdown. The bad news? The Eagles had just four rushing yards. BC needs a quick fix on offense if it's going to rebound in the ACC race.
