Penn State 31 Boston College 30

A missed extra point in overtime led to a 31-30 Penn State victory over BC in the New Era Pinstripe Bowl. Boston College won eight consecutive bowl games between 2000 and 2007 but they have now lost their last five postseason games over a span of seven years. The Eagles led 24-21 following a Mike Knoll field goal with 2:10 left in the fourth quarter but Penn State answered with a field goal of their own. Bowl teams scored a touchdown in their first OT possession but only Penn State was able to convert the extra point. Both Jon Hilliman and Tyler Murphy rushed for 100+ yards (148 and 105, respectively) but it did not offset the 371 passing yards (4 TD, 0 INT) by Penn State Sophomore QB Christian Hackenberg. BC matched their 7-6 record from a year ago. As we all know, that record could have been so much better.
