Boston College Leads Clemson 16-10 At Halftime

CHESTNUT HILL - It was certainly a second quarter to remember for Boston College.

After trailing 10-3 entering the quarter, the Eagles scored twice on Nate Freese's 37-yard field goal with 9:11 left before halftime and on true freshman Chase Rettig's 36-yard touchdown pass to junior running back Montel Harris, giving Boston College a 13-10 lead.

The lead is the Eagles' first since they led No. 16 Florida State 19-17 in the fourth quarter and is their first at home since defeating Kent State 26-13 back in week two.

Clemson had a chance to tie the game with 3:29 remaining before halftime, but Tigers kicker Chandler Catanzaro missed a 47-yard field goal wide right.

Boston College took advantage of Clemson's missed opportunity, moving the ball down the field (10 plays, 55 yards) before kicker Nate Freese split the uprights on a 36-yard field goal to give the Eagles a 16-10 lead heading into the break.
