BC wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah caught eight passes for 171 yards in the loss. Visit BC Interruption and SB Nation Boston for more on Boston College.

Appalachian State vs. No. 13 Virginia Tech: The Hokies had absolutely no trouble in the season opener this year, building a 38-0 halftime lead on their way to a 66-13 victory of Appy State. Four turnovers and a beast named David Wilson spelled doom for the Mountaineers. Wilson rushed for 162 yards and three touchdowns on just 16 carries, leading a Hokie ground assault that finished with 256 yards on 45 carries. Visit Gobbler Country for more on the Hokies.
