Hunt stuns BC with late TD as Syracuse wins 34-31
SYRACUSE 34, BOSTON COLLEGE 31

By JOHN KEKIS
AP Sports Writer

SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) -- Terrel Hunt hit tight end Josh Parris with
an 8-yard touchdown pass with 6 seconds remaining, and Syracuse
stunned Boston College 34-31 on Saturday to become eligible for
the postseason for the third time in four years.

Boston College (7-5, 4-4 ACC) had won four in a row behind star
tailback Andre Williams, the nation's leading rusher, but he was
injured in the third quarter and did not return, finishing the
game watching from the sidelines.

It was a must-win game for (Syracuse 6-6, 4-4 ACC), and Hunt
provided the dramatic finish after the Eagles had settled for a
field goal after a late turnover.

Hunt hit Alvin Cornelius III for 14 yards before the winning TD.

BC quarterback Chase Rettig had provided BC with the go-ahead
score with his legs, stunning the Orange with a 54-yard run.
Rettig started left and cut completely back across the field
before being tackled at the Syracuse 17. He then scored on a
keeper with 7:49 left for a 28-24 lead.

The Eagles sent many Syracuse fans for the exits when BC
linebacker Steele Divitto intercepted Hunt with 2:49 left and
Nate Freese kicked a 21-yard field goal.

Syracuse had taken a 24-21 lead on Ryan Norton's 42-yard field
goal late in the third, and he added a 44-yarder with 5:03
remaining in the game.

Something had to give in this one. Williams entered the game
with 2,073 yards rushing and Syracuse was one of three FBS
teams, along with Ohio State and Wisconsin, not to allow a
100-yard rusher this season. Williams, who had nine 100-yard
games and three straight 200-yard games coming in, finished with
29 yards on nine carries and scored once.

Hit hard repeatedly in the first half, Williams was hurt on a
run up the middle on the first play of the third quarter in a
big pileup that also sent Syracuse linebacker Marquis Spruill to
the sidelines.

With their star in the locker room, the Eagles tied the game at
21-all. Rettig had scrambles of 16 and 13 yards to key the drive
and hit Jake Sinkovec for a 9-yard TD.

After falling behind 7-0 in the first quarter, Syracuse
benefited from great field position to score two straight times
in the second quarter as the Orange defense repeatedly stuffed
Williams. He was held to 24 yards on eight rushing attempts in
the first half, and one of those carries was a 26-yard TD.

Despite getting pinned deep in his own territory after the BC
defense had stopped Syracuse at the 2 on fourth down, Rettig
engineered a 96-yard drive in just five plays to give BC a 7-0
lead. Standing on the back line of his own end zone, Rettig
zipped a 15-yard pass over the middle to tight end C.J. Parsons
and followed with a 55-yard completion to a wide-open Mike
Naples over the middle on the next play.

Williams, held to a yard on his first four carries and thrown
for losses on three of them by the fired-up Syracuse defense,
then scored around the left side with 1:57 left in the first.

With their season on the line, the Orange scored the next three
times they had the ball.

Syracuse finally broke through on its third trip inside the BC
20-yard line, and Hunt did the bulk of the work, rushing for 49
yards on six keepers. Facing a second-and-goal from the 1, Hunt
faked a pitch left and hit wide-open Josh Parris in the right
corner of the end zone to tie it at 7-7 early in the second.

Syracuse notched the first turnover of the game when linebacker
Cameron Lynch intercepted a Rettig pass at midfield, and George
Morris scored on a 4-yard run with 6:12 left for a 14-7 lead.

A shanked punt by Freese gave Syracuse the ball at midfield
again, and Hunt guided them to a touchdown in nine plays. Hunt
hit Jeremiah Kobena with a 17-yard pass and Durell Eskridge, the
Orange's starting free saftey, for 19 more on a third-and-10
play before scoring on a 1-yard run and a 21-7 lead with 70
seconds left.

With Williams struggling, Rettig worked his magic again, rolling
right and hitting Alex Amidon for 52 yards down the left side.
The play worked once, so might as well try it again. On the next
play, Rettig hit Parsons with a throwback left for a 9-yard TD
to move the Eagles within 21-14 at halftime.
