Recap


Chase Rettig, who had just one touchdown pass coming in, threw for three scores as Boston College cruised to a 45-17 victory over visiting UMass on Saturday.
 
Rettig connected with Colin Larmond (six catches, 114 yards) for two touchdowns, including a 36-yard scoring play with 5:12 left in the first half that gave the Eagles a 24-7 halftime lead.
 
BC linebacker Luke Kuechly became the fifth Boston College player to reach 400 tackles and extended his NCAA-best streak of double-digit tackles to 26 games.
 
Boston College’s senior running back Montel Harris returned to the lineup for the first time this season after recovering from a pair of knee surgeries. The senior ran nine times for 27 yards to leave him 98 yards short of Boston’s College’s all-time rushing record held by Derrick Knight.
 
The Eagles were averaging 80.7 yards rushing the first three games, but had 193 Saturday
