Boston College Vs. North Carolina State Final: Eagles Win 14-10 on Senior Day

Despite an extremely poor second half, the Boston College Eagles were able to hang on to defeat the North Carolina Wolfpack 14-10 in the final home game of the season. The win moves BC to 3-7 on the season and 2-5 in the ACC. This victory marks the Eagles second FBS win this year.

The Eagles were out-gained 179 to -2 in the second half, yet somehow managed to hang on to their 14-3 halftime lead. A tale of two halves indeed – quarterback Chase Rettig's was night and day after intermission. In the first half he competed seven of eight passes for 114 yards and a touchdown, compared to the second half where he was two for five for four total yards.

The Eagles finish up the season on the road at Notre Dame and at Miami (FL).

Boston College Vs. North Carolina State: Eagles Lead 14-10 After Three

After a dominant first half of football the Boston College Eagles find themselves in a 14-10 battle with the North Carolina Wolfpack heading into the fourth and final quarter of play. 

In search of their second FBS win of the season, the 2-7 Eagles are playing in front of their home crowd for the last time this season. 

After a huge first half, which saw him complete seven of eight passes for 114 yards and touchdown, quarterback Chase Rettig went two for five in the third quarter for a measly four yards. It wasn't just Rettig – the entire Boston College offense had a miserable third quarter, losing a net of seven yards.

The Eagles went three and out on every possession in the third quarter, except the final one, which bled into the fourth quarter. 

The Eagles will have the ball to start the fourth.

The Boston College Eagles look well on their way to their second FBS win of the season in their final home game of the season, senior day.

His only incompletion was an interception. 

The Eagles have dominated the Wolfpack in nearly every aspect of the game. They've more than doubled the Wolfpack's yards output – 192 to 88 – and are averaging 14.3 yards per pass attempt, compared to 4.9 for N.C. State.

The Eagles have also limited their penalties, committing only one in the first half. Outside of an early interception thrown by Chase Rettig, the Eagles have played a nearly perfect first half.
