Tyler Murphy, Boston College (6’2″ 213lbs) vs. USC
It took until week #3, but here’s our first QB to make it onto the Turf Report. Murphy may of not done much through the air this past weekend, but he did orchestrate a masterful performance on the ground as Boston College stunned #9 USC Saturday night. He worked the option play beautifully with his running backs, and kept Southern Cal’s defensive on their heels all game long. His 66 yard TD run in the 4th quarter was not only an example of Murphy’s explosiveness, but his field acumen as well. The 5th year senior who left Gainseville for an opportunity to start at quarterback looks to have found a home with BC. As coach Addazio’s offense continues to evolve, I’m excited to see what else he has in store for Murphy and the Eagles ground game.
