September 12, 2009 - 12:23 pm

CHESTNUT HILL -- The Boston College defense is gaining some traction. At the end of the third quarter they have allowed Kent State only 86 yards while stopping speedster running backs Eugene Jarvis and Andre Flowers for a total of 55 yards on 29 carries. The defense has also gotten turnover happy, stopping the first Kent State drives of the second half in their own zone. The first was courtesy of a Dominick LeGrande interception at the Golden Flashes 36 yard line that led to a Rich Gunnell six yard touchdown reception, his second of the game. The next turnover came after Boston College stuffed Kent State at the line, leading to a fumble recovery by rising star freshman linebacker Luke Kuechly. The Eagles converted the fumble into a 33 yard Steve Aponavicius field goal to take a 34-0 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
