Boston College outruns New Mexico St 48-34
BOSTON COLLEGE 48, NEW MEXICO ST 34

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -- Boston College tailback Andre Williams
scored on two long runs in the fourth quarter Saturday to help
the Eagles pull away from a stubborn New Mexico State team and
escape with a 48-34 victory at Aggie Memorial Stadium.

Williams, the leading rusher in the ACC and No. 2 in the FBS in
yards per game, finished with 30 carries for 295 yards and two
touchdowns. His two biggest, though, were the scoring runs that
came on plays of 80 and 47 yards, both with less than a minute
to go in the game, and broke a 34-34 tie.

Boston College (5-4) won for the second week in a row, following
a win against Virginia Tech last week. However, it wasn't easy
against NMSU (1-9), which has lost two in a row and whose only
win this season has come against Abilene Christian. BC needs
one more win to become bowl eligible.

In the first-ever meeting between the teams, the Eagles led only
20-17 at the half and 27-24 going into the fourth quarter.

A 32-yard field goal by Maxwell Johnson of NMSU tied the game at
27-27 early in the fourth quarter but, as they'd done almost all
afternoon, the Eagles answered an Aggie score with one of their
own.

This time, it was a 98-yard kickoff return for a score by Myles
Willis, who broke a tackle near his own 23-yard line, then
darted outside and raced untouched the rest of the way. That put
the Eagles back ahead at 34-27.

Still, the Aggies, who had the Boston College defense on its
heels for much of the game, refused to go away. NMSU drove 75
yards in six plays to tie the score at 34-34. Quarterback Andrew
McDonald hit all-purpose threat Austin Franklin on a post route
that covered 49 yards for the tying touchdown.

The Aggies, coached by former Eagles quarterbacks coach Doug
Martin, looked to take control on the next series when Bryan
Bonilla recovered a fumble by Boston College receiver Alex
Amidon.

This time, it was the Eagles' defense turn, and it forced NMSU
into a three-and-out. However, the ensuing punt left Boston
College at its own 3-yard line.

That's when Williams stepped up. After an offside penalty on the
Aggies and a 12-yard pass from Chase Rettig to C.J. Parsons,
Williams took a handoff up the middle and shot through the line
and all the way down the field untouched for a 41-34 lead.

Linebacker Steven Daniels sealed things for the Eagles when he
intercepted McDonald on the fourth place of the next series. Two
plays later, Williams again broke free, this time for a 47-yard
run to the right side that made it 48-34.
