WHAT IS AT STAKE?

In his third season, Boston College coach Jeff Hafley is trying to pull the Eagles out of a rut in which they’ve won just seven games since 2009. Rutgers haven’t beaten BC in 14 tries (0-13-1) since 1991. , when the two schools were in the Grand Est.

KEY MATCH

Both offensive lines are under construction. Rutgers coach Greg Schiano has signed 13 new offensive linemen to deal with the team’s biggest weakness in 2021. Hollin Pierce is expected to return to right tackle and Ireland Brown will likely move from left guard to center . The rest of the line is uncertain with transfers Willie Tyler (Louisiana-Monroe), JD DiRenzo (Sacred Heart), Mike Ciaffoni (Colorado State) and Curtis Dunlap (Minnesota) all in the mix.

BC’s offensive line was a force last year, but that unit’s five players are gone, with guard Zion Johnson one of four 2021 Eagles on NFL rosters. Tackles Jack Conley and Ozzy Trapilo, with two starts each, are the only two Lyonnais to have tenure experience. Center Drew Kendall wore a redshirt as a freshman last year after making two appearances.

PLAYERS TO WATCH

Rutgers: Noah Vedral, Gavin Wimsatt and Evan Simon have competed for the quarterback position and Schiano says he could play more than one until a starter emerges. Cornerback Avery Young has played over 3,000 snaps for the Scarlet Knights. Aussie punter Adam Korsak averaged 45.25 yards on the net and landed 38 punts inside the 20-yard line last season.

Boston College: Notre Dame transfer Phil Jurkovec produced (914 yards, 7 TD) while he remained healthy. He missed six games last year with a broken bone in his hand. WR Zay Flowers (44 catches, 746 yards, 5 TDs) passed up the chance to turn pro to return for his senior year. Pat Garwo III (205 carries, 1045 yards, 7 TD) is back at running back.

FACTS AND FIGURES

Rutgers is 9-4 in the first games of Schiano’s two stints as coach. … Hafley served under Schiano as Rutgers defensive backs coach in 2011. He followed Schiano to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and was his secondary/safety coach in 2012-13.
