The Replay: Virginia

The stereotypical Hollywood movie would have you believe that Boston College head coach Jeff Hafley walked into his locker room at halftime of Saturday's game against Virginia with a fiery speech that inspired a downtrodden group of players. The Eagles were losing by 14 points after wide receiver Malachi Fields out-jumped BC's prevent defenders on a fluke play, a Hail Mary pass from quarterback Tony Muskett, that negated a potential game-tying two-for-one around halftime.

The half should have ended one play earlier when defensive lineman Shitta Sillah sacked Muskett into an intentional grounding penalty, but the 10-second run-off in the final minute had itself not occurred after Sillah's helmet fell off.
