Recap: Boston College vs. NC State

Chestnut Hill, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - The Boston College Eagles were led by Andre Williams' career-high 339 rushing yards as they defeated the NC State Wolfpack, 38-21, at Alumni Stadium in an ACC matchup.

The Wolfpack's (3-7, 0-7) disappointing season continued in the setback. Pete Thomas had 207 yards and a touchdown on 22-of-33 passing. Shadrach Thornton had 56 rushing yards on 11 carries. Jumichael Ramos led all receivers with 109 yards and a touchdown on five catches.

Nate Freese made a 25-yard field goal to put the Eagles up 3-0 early. Boston College added to their lead following a Williams 17-yard rush for a touchdown with 15 seconds left in the first quarter.

Thomas tossed a nine-yard touchdown pass to Rashard Smith to get the Wolfpack on the board midway through the second, although the Eagles responded a few minutes later when Myles Willis ran in a 19-yard touchdown with 4:46 left in the half.

Boston College stuck fist in the second half. Freese had a 39-yard field goal to put the Eagles up, 20-7.

Smith connected with Quintin Payton on a 49-yard touchdown pass to make the score 20-14 with 9:05 remaining.

After a 65-yard run by Williams, he fumbled at the one-yard line, but the loose ball was picked up his teammate Alex Amidon and taken in for the touchdown. Chase Rettig ran in a two-point conversion to put Boston College up, 28-14.

A 41-yard field goal by Freese extended Boston College's lead late.

NC State scored on a 52-yard touchdown pass from Garrett Leatham to Ramos with under two minutes to play, but Boston College answered right back with a 34- yard touchdown rush by Williams.
