Boston Globe report: Frosh QB Chase Rettig to start vs. Irish

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
The suspense was killing us, but it might finally be over: highly touted freshman quarterback Chase Rettig will start for Boston College against Notre Dame on Saturday night in Chestnut Hill, Mass., the Boston Globe reported today.

''Chase is going to start and Mike [Marscovetra] and Dave [Shinskie] will battle for No. 2," a team source told the Globe's Mark Blaudschun. "Chase took about 80 percent of the snaps in practice [Tuesday]."

In the aftermath of Boston College's 19-0 loss to Virginia Tech last Saturday -- the first time the Eagles have been shut out since 1998 -- BC coach Frank Spaziani announced he would replace Shinskie and start either Rettig or Marscovetra against Notre Dame.

He said he would not make a decision until later in the week, possibly as late as game time. But the Globe reported that Rettig will start and the move will be announced later today.
