  • Follow Sports

BOSTON — Linebacker Kevin Pierre-Lewis had a 33-yard interception return for a touchdown midway into the fourth quarter and Andre Williams ran for a pair of scores, lifting Boston College to a 34-27 win over Virginia Tech on Saturday.

Williams carried 33 times for 166 yards. Chase Rettig completed 11 of 14 passes for 93 yards and a score for Boston College (4-4, 2-3).

Virginia Tech’s Logan Thomas completed 24 of 40 passes for 391 yards and two TDs, but was picked off twice and fumbled twice, leading to 17 of Boston College’s points.

The Hokies (6-3, 3-2) took their third lead on Cody Journell’s 47 field goal – his second long one of the day – 1:52 into the final quarter. But Boston College rallied again, tying it on Nate Freese’s 43-yard field goal midway through the fourth quarter.

NORTH CAROLINA 27, NORTH CAROLINA STATE 19

In Raleigh, N.C., freshman T.J. Logan ran for a 14-yard touchdown with 11:19 left to help North Carolina (3-5, 2-3) beat rival North Carolina State (3-5, 0-5).

Quinshad Davis had two touchdown catches for the Tar Heels, who won in Carter-Finley Stadium for the first time since 2005. Davis’ second score came off a 59-yard pass from Ryan Switzer on a trick play, putting North Carolina ahead for good midway through the second.

SYRACUSE 13, WAKE FOREST 0

In Syracuse, N.Y., Terrel Hunt scored on a 6-yard run to break a scoreless tie in the third quarter, freshman defensive end Isaiah Johnson set up another score with an interception moments later, and Syracuse (4-4, 2-2) beat Wake Forest (4-5, 2-4).

It marked the Orange’s first league shutout since a 42-0 Big East win over Rutgers in 1996. The Demon Deacons’ deepest penetration in the game was the Syracuse 32.

Wake Forest had nearly upset No. 7 Miami a week ago, losing 24-21 in the final minute.
