Boston College Pounds NC State, 52-20

BOSTON (AP) -- Boston College's Montel Harris set two school records with 264 yards rushing and five touchdowns to lead the Eagles to a 52-20 win over North Carolina State on Saturday.

Ten players previously had four touchdown runs for Boston College, the last was Darnell Campbell in 1993.

Harris set the yardage record with a 9-yarder early in the final quarter, surpassing the previous mark of 253, set by Phil Bennett in 1972. He had one more run before leaving for good.

The Eagles (5-2, 3-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) improved to 5-0 at home this season. NC State (3-4, 0-3) dropped its third straight game following conference losses to Wake Forest and Duke.

BC first-year coach Frank Spaziani defeated his longtime coaching mate Tom O'Brien. Spaziani worked under O'Brien for all of his 10 seasons at BC before O'Brien joined the Wolfpack nearly three years ago.
