    "Matty Ice" Hype Begins

    Looks as if Boston College is pulling out all the stops in promoting Matt Ryan for the Heisman trophy. Beginning yesterday, fans and media now have 24-hour access to video highlights, updated biographical information, statistics and other information about Heisman Trophy candidate QB Matt Ryan on a new website,

    "Matty Ice," as his teammates call him, may have positioned himself as the Heisman frontrunner Thursday night when he engineered one of the great comebacks in BC football history, leading the second-ranked Eagles to a 14-10 win at No. 8 Virginia Tech. Down 10-0 with 4:11 left in the game, Ryan led the Eagles on a nine-play, 92-yard scoring drive in 2:05. Then, after BC recovered an onside kick, he put together a seven-play, 66-yard drive that culminated with a 32-yard touchdown pass to Andre Callender with 11 seconds remaining in the game. He finished the game 25-52 for 285 yards and two touchdowns.

    Ryan has been the subject of intense national media attention the past two weeks, being featured in USA Today,, Sports Illustrated and others. He has led Boston College to its best start (8-0) and highest national ranking since the 1942 season.
