What started as a potential blowout ended up a nailbiter but Boston College survived the late Wake Forest run and picked up their fifth win of the season. The Eagles led 17-0 at halftime after a dominant first half where they outgained the Demon Deacons 213 yards to 6. However, Wake Forest's 255 second half yards (and another BC missed extra point) put them within a touchdown of winning the game. An interception by Justin Simmons with just over two minutes remaining followed by a pair of first downs sealed the win for BC. Tyler Murphy passed for 165 yards and rushed for 77. John Hilliman rushed for more than 100 yards for the second time this season. BC (5-3) visits slumping Virginia Tech (4-4) next Saturday.
