Nevada bests BC in Fight Hunger Bowl

The Boston College football team held down the high-powered Nevada offense, but the Eagles still couldn't come out on top in the Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl Sunday night in San Francisco. The end result was a 20-13 loss to the Wolf Pack.

 

BC, the owner of one of the best rushing defenses in the nation, limited Nevada to a season-low 114 yards — more than 190 below its season average. But, thanks in large part to some big plays by Wolf Pack quarterback Colin Kaepernick (192 yards passing), the Eagles saw their five-game win streak come to an end.

 

Boston College QB Chase Rettig, a freshman, completed 14-of-34 passes for 121 yards with two interceptions. BC's leading rusher, Montel Harris, didn't play, having undergone knee surgery in November.

 

The Eagles were able to close the gap to a touchdown with 3:52 to play. They then were given the opportunity to tie the game, getting the ball back at their own...

Bruins recall Bartkowski from Providence
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced Sunday night that they have recalled defenseman Matt Bartkowski from Providence and placed defenseman Mark Stuart on injured reserve. The 22-year-old Bartkowski will be available to the B's when they face the Penguins on Monday night.

 

Bartkowski was the Bruins' final cut from the NHL roster before the regular season. In 34 games in Providence, he has four goals and eight assists for 12 points on the season. 

 

The Bruins acquired Bartkowski from the Panthers in last season's trade for Dennis Seidenberg. The Ohio State product was drafted by the Panthers in the seventh round of the 2008 draft. 

 

Stuart has been out since Dec. 7 with a fractured hand and dislocated finger. He has two points (both assists) in 26 games.
