Mass. College Football: Teams Of The Week (Week 2)

By NoontimeSports.com 

The second week of the college football season is in the books. We’ll be posting our first Honor Roll of the season later today, but a new post that we’ll be doing this season is “Teams of the Week.”

Every Monday we will post these teams (one from each Division) and similar to our Honor Roll, everyone is encouraged to submit possible teams via Facebook, Twitter and email.

Below are the three teams that earned this week’s honor.

Division 1: Boston College – “Be A Dude” seems to be working for the Maroon and Gold, who’re now 2-0 overall and 1-0 in ACC Conference play. Against Wake Forrest on Friday, BC relied on its ground game as Andre Williams rushed for 204 yards on 35 carries and scored one touchdowns in his team’s 24-10 victory. Quarterback Chase Rettig matched his touchdown total from week one with two as he connected with Alex Amidon (five catches, 93 yards, one touchdown) and Spiffy Evans (one catch, 22 yards, one touchdown).

The Eagles will head to California next weekend for an afternoon contest against University of Southern California.

Division 2: Bentley University – A complete team effort lifted the Falcons past the Mercyhurst in their season opener in Waltham on Saturday. Jet Kollie score two touchdowns (one on the ground, one through the air), Michael Baron kicked one field goal and two PATs and Kyle Young recorded a game-high 14 tackles (four solo).

Bentley will jump right into conference play on Friday as they host Assumption College under the lights at 7 p.m.

Division 3: Nichols College – Trailing Westfield State, 21-7, the Bison rallied to force an extra session and win their season opener under the lights on Friday. The Nichols defense came up with an enormous stop in overtime, which sealed the win as they denied a two-point conversion attempt.

Connor Richard led the defense with seven tackles (five solo), while Lucas Bogdanski registered the unit’s only sack. Offensively, quarterback Quillian Respass finished 20-of-33 for 310 yards. He tossed three touchdowns to Dylan Rimsky, who hauled in 14 catches for 290 yards.

Nichols will return to the gridiron Friday for a non-conference clash against Western Connecticut State.
