CHESTNUT HILL - A high scoring first quarter (28 total points scored) carried over into the second quarter, and the Miami Hurricanes took a 21-20 lead over the Boston College Eagles into the break of the season opener inside Alumni Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Freese hit another field goal, this time from 37 yards out, with 3:32 left before the break, making it a 21-20 Eagles' deficit.
