It is not every year that both the Orange and Eagles have at least seven wins heading into Rivalry Week, and get to jockey for bowl position.Boston College entered the half down 28-14, and will likely be without its best player moving forward.Coming back from the break, the Eagles announced that A.J. Dillon, one of college football’s top power rushers, is unlikely to return to the contest.Dillon ran 12 times for 56 yards in the first half, but looked gimpy on the sideline on a number of occasions. It was clear he wasn’t 100-percent, which is no surprise, as he’s been banged up for a few weeks.AJ Dillon is on the bench but ESPN reports he’s unlikely to play the 2nd half. He’s dealing with an ankle injury.— Brent Axe (@BrentAxeMedia) November 24, 2018Travis Levy has carried four times for 27 yards, and has had some nice gains in this one. Still, BC definitely wishes it had its bell cow.To make matters worse, the Eagles lost star defensive end Zach Allen early in the second half. His status is unknown right now.That doesn’t mean BC is out of it though. The team intercepted Eric Dungey to open the second half, setting up a nice touchdown throw by Anthony Brown to cut things to 28-21.Syracuse is playing for its first 9+ win season since 2001, while Boston College is looking to end the regular season 8-4.last_img read more

Peaceful manner of Srebrenica observances applauded by UN mission

In a statement released at the Mission’s headquarters in Sarajevo, UNMIBH said the country had witnessed “a victory for peace, tolerance and reconciliation. Today’s events represent one more step to begin turning some of the darkest pages of this country’s history.”The ceremony included the Srebrenica Commemoration and the laying of a marker stone for the Potacari Memorial and Cemetery, six years after thousands of innocent civilians seeking refuge in Srebrenica, a UN-designated safe area, were murdered, and thousands of others forcibly relocated as a result of the policy of ethnic cleansing. It was one of the worst civilian massacres in Europe since the end of the Second World War. In its statement, UNMIBH affirmed its support for the speedy arrest of all war criminals in Bosnia and Herzegovina and rejected the “dangerous culture” of collective guilt that leads to further cycles of intolerance.”Individuals, not entire ethnic or religious groups must answer for barbaric crimes committed,” the statement said. “Until the guilty are punished, the innocent cannot be absolved.” read more
