CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - Boston College football hosted its second of three intrasquad scrimmages of the 2012 spring season on Saturday afternoon inside the Alumni Stadium bubble. Here are a few notes from the afternoon's scrimmage:

• Sophomore quarterback Chase Rettig finished the day 12-for-23 with two touchdowns. His first scoring toss was to sophomore wide receiver Alex Amidon for 60 yards. His second was to freshman Spiffy Evans for 35 yards.

• Rettig started the scrimmage by connecting on seven of his first eight passes.
