Zay Flowers Named ACC Wide Receiver of the Week

Career day for the sophomore in the 26-6 win at Duke

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. – The Atlantic Coast Conference named Boston College sophomore Zay Flowers the ACC Wide Receiver of the Week following his breakout performance Saturday in the 26-6 win at Duke.

It marked the first time in Flowers’ career he was named the ACC’s Wide Receiver of the Week. He is the first Boston College wide receiver to earn the honor since Alex Amidon in 2013.

Flowers totaled five receptions for a career-high 162 yards and a touchdown in BC’s 26-6 win at Duke. It was the first 100-yard receiving game for an Eagle since Kobay White’s 121 yards at Florida State in 2018.

The 162 yards receiving by Flowers were the seventh-most by a BC player since 1996. Flowers averaged 32.4 yards per reception. No receiver in BC history had more receiving yards on fewer receptions than Flowers in a single game.

Zay Flowers was the first BC receiver since 2012 (Alex Amidon) to have over 150 yards receiving in a game.

BC (1-0, 1-0 ACC) returns to action Saturday against Texas State. Kickoff is set for 6 p.m. on NESN+ and WEEI 850 AM.
