Boston College vs. N.C. State final score: Wolfpack cruise in 2nd half, 27-10

Mike Glennon is deadly with a short field. The NC State quarterback had three touchdown passes from inside the 25-yard line in the Wolfpack's 27-10 victory over Boston College. The Eagles didn't help themselves much, turning the ball over three times and failing to capitalize on NC State's early offensive struggles.

BC lead 3-0 after a sluggish first half, but were quickly overmatched in the second quarter when Glennon's first touchdown went to Quintin Payton and Chase Rettig's last pass of the second half was returned for a touchdown. The Wolfpack never relinquished their 14-3 halftime lead.

Tobias Palmer caught seven passes on the day for 56 yards, including Glennon's final two touchdowns. Both occurred in the third quarter and put the game away for NC State.

Quarterback Chase Rettig really struggled for the Eagles, completing just 16 of his 45 passes on the day, good for 35.6%. Boston College was three of fifteen on third down and failed to convert their only fourth down attempt on the day

The win brings the Wolfpack to 4-4 in the ACC and 7-5 overall. The loss closes out a disappointing season for Boston College, who only won one of eight conference games and just two on the season.
