Boston College Holds Off NC State 14-10

BOSTON (AP) -- Starting quarterback Chase Rettig threw for a touchdown, backup Josh Bordner ran for a scores and struggling Boston College held on for a 14-10 win over North Carolina State on Saturday.

The Eagles (3-7, 2-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) are suffering through their worst season since going 4-7 in 1998 under Tom O'Brien -- now in his fifth season as head coach at North Carolina State.

Rettig completed 9 of 13 attempts for 118 yards, and Andre Williams carried 18 times for 61 yards.

Mike Glennon completed 28 of 40 passes for 220 yards and James Washington had a 3-yard TD run for the Wolfpack (5-5, 2-4), who moved deep into BC's territory in the closing minutes before Glennon's pass was tipped at the line and fell to the ground on a fourth-and-5 play with 1:10 left.

NC State needs to win both of its final games to become bowl eligible because it has two wins over FCS schools.

    Well it's not like UNC is any better of a football program. N.C. State is down this year, but so is all schools in the state. N.C. State will return back to their glory days and before long there will be a few ACC Championship trophies up in Raleigh that N.C. State will own.

      LOL at this guy. The only ACC Championship N.C. State can win is in cattle calling or cow tipping.

    This NC State team is a mystery to me.Cannot figure out how they BEAT UNC & Lost to Boston College. Suee NC State is 5-5,But 2 of those wins came over Smaller Divison Schools. Don't think NC State can beat Clemson. No Bowl Game this year. NC State is just about as sorry as ECU.Both Schools will be at Home During Bowl Season Drinking Kool Aid & Eating Popcorn!! Both NC State & ECU are kindergarden TYpe Programs Playing in a Mans World.Both schools have Bad Coaches.
