Chase Rettig piled up 357 passing yards but tossed three interceptions as the Boston College Eagles found themselves on the wrong side of the scoreboard for the seventh time this season, losing to the Wake Forest Demon Deacons, 28-14, on Saturday afternoon in Winston-Salem, N.C.
The Deacs opened the game with two first-quarter touchdowns, but the Eagles cut their deficit in half on Rettig's first touchdown pass of the day, a 16-yard strike to Alex Amidon (130 yards, 10 catches). Wake Forest tacked on a third first-half touchdown, also wide receiver Michael Campanaro's third score of the first half, to go up 21-7 at the break. Rettig found Chris Pantale for a 12-yard touchdown with 8:35 left in the third quarter, making things interesting, but the Demon Deacons sealed the deal on Josh Harris' 23-yard touchdown run with 2:36 left in the third.
Tanner Price threw for 293 yards and had three touchdowns and an interception for Wake Forest. Campanaro had 123 receiving yards and three scores and Smith Harris rushed for 84 yards and the lone score. The Deacs' defense held the Eagles to 12 net rushing yards, and David Dudeck had 32 yards on 14 carries to lead BC.
The Eagles' loss made them ineligible for a bowl game for the second straight season. Boston College hosts its bitter rival Notre Dame next Saturday night on national television.
