Nothing Cooking In Third

If you were once a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles video games you might recall the the villain in the series, Shredder, would say "tonight I dine on turtle soup." Boston College is attempting to turn the Terrapins to soup but the progress has gone in fits and starts. No team scored in the third quarter, trading punts and stalled drives along the way. It looked at one point that the Eagles would get on the board with another Steve Aponavicius field goal, but the fifth year senior kicker missed his first of the season from 30 yards at the 7:59 mark (one of the rules of sport -- a sure fire way to jinx a kicker is to mention that he has had a perfect season, as was mentioned in the last post). On the positive side, junior defensive tackle Damik Scafe, who has been on and off the injured list this year, has played his best game of the season thus far. He has two sacks as well as assisting on a few tackles for loss.
