A Look at BC's Young QB

Anyone who watched the Boston College-Wake Forest game knows the Eagles have a particularly stout defense. But the Eagles will need a sound performance out of quarterback Dominique Davis to beat the Terrapins on Saturday.

Boston College quarterback Chris Crane is out for six weeks with a fractured collarbone, which means Davis gets a start and a chance to lead the Eagles to a division title.

Davis, a redshirt freshman, has completed 54.3 percent of his passes (19 of 35). He has thrown one touchdown pass and no interceptions. Prior to last Saturday, he saw action against Central Florida (Sept. 20) and Rhode Island (Sept. 27).

Against Wake Forest, Davis completed 13 of 23 passed for 103 yards. He fumbled twice, and both fumbles were returned for touchdowns to keep the Demon Deacons in the game.

But then he engineered a nine-play, 70-yard drive and scored the game-winning touchdown on a one-yard run.

Hard to know how he will play Saturday in Crane’s absence, but that last drive must have given him a good dose of confidence. Now he gets to play at home, and against a Maryland defense that has been inconsistent much of the season.
