Boston College receiver Ifeanyi Momah had a great game Saturday, but Eagles fans will need to wait a year to see him in action again.

Boston College Eagles wide receiver Ifeanyi Momah is done for the year after suffering an injury to his left ACL, the school announced Monday. BC also announced it will request a sixth year of eligibility for the senior. 

The Eagles entered the game without their offensive star, running back Montel Harris, but looked to have found themselves another. Momah put together an eight-catch, 157-yard day against the Northwestern Wildcats, putting him seventh in the nation after the opening week. Last year, he ranked third on the team in catches and fourth in yardage.

The news comes as a surprise. After the game, Momah didn't really offer a sign that anything was wrong with his knee.

BC hasn't had much of an explosive passing game in a while, but it will be on Bobby Swigert, Alex Amidon and other returning leaders to make sure Momah's strong Saturday wasn't a mirage.
