Matchup to Watch: Boston College Offensive Line vs. Rutgers Defensive Line

Boston College has an elite college quarterback and some solid playmakers, but the season opener against Rutgers may come down to whether or not the Eagles offensive line can get some push against the Rutgers defensive front.

Boston College will be breaking in an entirely new offensive line, needing to replace all five starters from one year ago. Guard Zion Johnson (first-round draft pick), center Alec Lindstrom (Rimington finalist), tackle Tyler Vrabel, and guard Ben Petrula were all in NFL training camps this summer. The one returning starter, Second Team All-ACC selection and New Jersey native Christian Mahogany, unfortunately suffered a season-ending ACL injury before spring camp.
