  Draft Scout by Conference

  Phil Jurkovec didn't take long to get a big hit in his surprising return to Boston College's starting lineup. After that, coach Jeff Hafley knew his QB would be fine. Jurkovec ran for a touchdown in his return, and the Eagles halted a four-game losing streak with a 17-3 victory over Virginia Tech on Friday night in their annual red bandana game. Jurkovec, who injured his throwing hand in Week 2, was thought to be lost for the season after surgery. He completed just 7-of-13 passes for 112 yards, but gave the Eagles (5-4, 1-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) a spark after the offense sputtered in his absence by recovering a fumble on their first drive and scoring the TD.

Hafley said Jurkovec was cleared to play last Friday. "I called him in and I would have said that's a 50-50 chance with the amount of reps he was going to take," Hafley said. "I didn't want to do anything to jeopardize or get him hurt. We wanted to guide him, and he walked in and said: ‘I'm playing. The 6-foot-5 junior was sent sprawling to the ground on a run on BC's third offensive play. "We wouldn't have let him play if we didn't feel confident about him getting hit and getting hurt," Hefley said. "Maybe part of me (was concerned), but when I saw him bounce up and the look in his eye, we felt good about that." Pat Garwo rushed for 116 yards on 30 carries and a 3-yard score for BC. - Boston College/AP College Football
