After transferring in from Notre Dame, Jurkovec put together a solid 2020 season. He threw for 2,558 yards and 17 touchdowns. At times, Jurkovec looked like a pro, playing under head coach Jeff Hafley.
Expectations were high for 2021; Jurkovec would once again team up with star wide receiver Zay Flowers. However, Jurkovec suffered an injury early in the season, missed time and Boston College’s season was never quite the same.
Jurkovec completed just 52-of-96 pass attempts (54.2 percent) for 914 yards, seven touchdowns and four interceptions. He played in only six games. Boston College finished 6-6, overall.
Now, Jurkovec will return to The Heights — with his sights set on a big 2022 season.
