After 2-win season, Boston College trying to revive football program, on and off the field

Boston College is 2-0 for the first time since 2010, and the Eagles have already matched their win total from all of last year.

Offensive lineman Ian White says it's part of a whole new atmosphere on campus.

The student section at Alumni Stadium has been full for both home games so far.

New coach Steve Addazio is trying to rebuild the atmosphere of the program along with the program itself. He stripped the names of the back of the players' jerseys, focusing on the team instead.

The players now take part in an "Eagle Walk," leaving Mass in coat and tie to walk through the middle of the campus to the football stadium, accompanied by the band and cheerleaders. And Addazio has the team sing the fight song in the locker room after the game — but only after wins.
