Boston College Romps Kent State 34-7, Improves to 2-0 The good news for the Boston College Eagles is that they're 2-0 with two very convincing victories over two inferior opponents.

The bad news? The easy part of the schedule is over.

The Eagles jumped out to a 34-0 lead through the first three quarters on Saturday, eventually beating the Kent State Golden Flashes 34-7.

Quarterbacks Justin Tuggle and Dave Shinskie, locked in a battle for the No. 1 job, each played well. Tuggle completed six of his 12 passes for 144 yards and two touchdowns, while Shinskie went 8-for-15 for 61 yards and a score.

Montel Harris (19 carries, 73 yards, touchdown), Rich Gunnell (six catches, 108 yards, two touchdowns) and Colin Larmond (three catches, 70 yards, touchdown) were the stars on offense, while the defense held the Golden Flashes to just 189 yards from scrimmage.

With a 54-0 victory in Week 1 over Northeastern, the Eagles now have a 2-0 record heading into conference play. In a wide-open ACC, the Eagles travel to Clemson next week to take on the Tigers. They then host Wake Forest and Florida State before heading to Blacksburg to take on Virginia Tech.
