Boston College Football Countdown: 3 Days to Go


In keeping with the theme yesterday, the Boston College #3 players and three facts about Eagles football.

By the way, if you haven’t bought your food for the tailgate and stuck it in the fridge, you might want to get on top of that.

Who Wears 3 Now

Harrison Jackson, WR, sophomore

Jackson is entering his second year with the Boston College Eagles in 2013, having played last season as a true freshman. He got into five games and recorded one reception. His redshirt was burned for 37 offensive snaps (4.5% of all BC plays) last year so interpret that however you wish. Jackson hails from Northern Virginia, where he was an all-district football player.

Notables Who Wore 3

Pedro Cirino, DB, 1996-99. 1999 team captain; 241 career tackles.
Ifeanyi Momah, WR, 2007-11. Solid receiver undone by injuries; picked up by Philly Eagles.
Jack Concannon, QB, 1961-63. 10 seasons in the NFL.

It Wasn’t A Shutout

In Boston College’s first-ever bowl game in 1940, the Eagles scored three points. That was only slightly worse than Clemson, who scored six.


Chase Rettig threw for 300 or more yards three times last season, which was a career high.


The most interceptions for a Boston College player ever in a single game is three; it has been done 15 times, twice each by Tony Thurman and DeJuan Tribble.
