Kirk Herbstreit Says A.J. Dillon Impressed Him The Most On Saturday

Kirk Herbstreit speaks on ESPN about college football.

The freshman running back had quite a performance.

If you haven't heard of A.J. Dillon, you have now.

Boston College's freshman running back has become one of the country's most-impressive tailbacks, helping lead the Golden Eagles to an upset win over Louisville on Saturday.

During the upset win, he totaled a school freshman record 272 yards on 39 carries and four touchdowns, with 239 of those yards - including a 75-yard touchdown run - coming in the second half.

His performance was the most-impressive thing Kirk Herbstreit saw this weekend.

The freshman tailback has totaled 608 yards and 6 touchdowns so far this season. The 6-foot, 240-pound running back is a New London, Ct. native.
