Recap: Wake Forest vs. Boston College

Winston-Salem, NC (Sports Network) - Behind a record-setting day from receiver Michael Campanaro, the Wake Forest Demon Deacons defeated the Boston College Eagles, 28-14, in an ACC showdown at BB&T Field.

Campanaro tied an ACC single-game record with 16 receptions, tallying 123 yards and three touchdowns in the process for Wake Forest (5-4, 3-4 ACC), which had lost three of its previous four contests. It was the second time this season Campanaro found the end zone three times in a game. Tanner Price was busy on the afternoon, completing 39-of-57 passes for 293 yards and the three scores to Campanaro. Josh Harris led the team with 85 yards rushing and also scored a touchdown.

For Boston College (2-7, 1-5), Chase Rettig completed 29-of-49 passes for 357 yards and touchdown, but he also threw three interceptions and lost a fumble. Alex Amidon had a memorable day receiving himself with 10 receptions for 130 yards and touchdown. The Eagles have now lost six of their last seven games.

The Deacons opened up the scoring midway through the first quarter on a five- yard touchdown pass from Price to Campanaro. Price and Campanaro struck again later in the first quarter from 27 yards out as Wake Forest got out to a 14-0 lead.

The Eagles scored their first touchdown of the game midway through the second quarter when Rettig hooked up with Amidon on a 16-yard scoring strike to cut their deficit in half.

Wake Forest countered with less than two minutes remaining in the second half following another Price-to-Campanaro scoring connection, this time from 16 yards out, and it took a 21-7 lead into halftime.

The Eagles pulled off a trick play midway through the third quarter to make it 21-14 when wide receiver Bobby Swigert completed a 12-yard touchdown pass to Chris Pantale.

The Deacons brought their lead back to two scores later in the quarter on a 23-yard touchdown rush from Harris. Neither team would score in the fourth quarter as Wake Forest held on for the win.

Wake Forest was able to possess the ball for nearly 35 minutes thanks in large part to completing 13-of-22 third down attempts.
