Boston College moving ball on Northeastern

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

Forget about quarterback. Boston College has tailbacks Josh Haden and Montel Harris, both of whom have already scored touchdowns for the Eagles, giving BC a 14-0 lead over Northeastern in the first quarter.

With Justin Tuggle managing the offense, the Eagles are running the ball effectively. Of course, they've made a few mistakes they won't get away with against their ACC opponents, but that's to be expected in the opener, especially with such a young team. The early indication here, though -- and it's not a surprise -- is that BC's running game will be the identity of this offense. They can do it with the sophomore one-two punch of Harris and Haden, plus the veteran, talented offensive line.

So far, so good in Chestnut Hill.
