Boston College moving ball on Northeastern

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.
