Boston College vs. Florida State score update: No. 12 Seminoles up 31-7 on Eagles at half

The Florida State Seminoles are having their way with the Boston College Eagles, comfortably leading 28-7 at halftime in Doak Campbell Stadium.

Florida State has been dominant from the outset, scoring on a 99-yard drive the first time it touched the ball. E.J. Manuel looks terrific, completing 15-of-20 for 296 yards and a trio of touchdowns. Manuel's biggest play came on a 77-yard touchdown toss to Kenny Shaw, which opened the scoring in the first quarter.

Shaw has only made two catches, but he's racked up 125 yards in the process.

Boston College is doing everything it can, but not much is working. Chase Rettig hasn't had much success through the air, picking up only 70 yards on 9-of-20 passing. However, Rettig did connect with Bobby Swigert on an 18-yard touchdown pass to bring the Eagles within 21 points.

Swigert is the leading receiver for Boston College with 42 yards on four receptions.

Eagles running back Andre Williams is also playing very well with 77 yards on only 12 carries.
