Virginia Tech running back Ryan Williams won't be able to play Saturday against Boston College because of a leg injury. Williams, who was hobbled last week in the Hokies' victory against East Carolina, will be unavailable for the Atlantic Coast Conference opener against the Eagles. The Hokies (1-2) are expected to start Darren Evans in their bid for their first victory at BC since 2002. The Eagles (2-0) are looking to avenge a 48-14 loss last year in Blacksburg.
The Red Sox announced Thursday that they will honor retiring infielder Mike Lowell in a pregame ceremony on Oct. 2 prior to their game against the Yankees. Festivites on "Thanks, Mike Night" will begin approximately 30 minutes before the game's first pitch.
Lowell, who came up with the Yankees in 1998, defeated his former club when he won a World Series with the Marlins in 2003. After six seasons in Florida, Lowell was packaged with Josh Beckett in a deal that sent Hanley Ramirez and Anibal Sanchez to the Marlins. He was named World Series MVP in his second year with the Red Sox, the 2007 campaign.
A four-time All Star and a Gold Glove winner at third base in 2005, Lowell has hit .278/.341/.463 over 13 seasons. In 1,595 games, he has 222 homers and 948 runs batted in.
