NCAA Football: Buffalo at Boston College Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass- In front of a drenched and sparse Parents’ Weekend crowd at the Heights, Boston College bested the Buffalo Bulls 35-3. Despite the wet conditions, the Eagles offense shined, attaining 400 yards of offense on the day, including Patrick Towles 234 passing yards on the day. With the win, the Eagles are above .500 for the first time since Oct. 10, 2015, when the Eagles lost 3-0 to Wake Forest (sorry) to fall to 3-3 on the season. The Eagles lost six straight after the loss to Wake Forest to finish 3-9 on the season, and would not go above .500 again.

Jon Hilliman led all running backs with 54 yards and one touchdown. Jeff Smith had five receptions on the day for 65 yards. The Eagles next opponent will be current national championship runners-up, the No. 3 Clemson Tigers. The game will be held in the evening on Friday, Oct. 7 at 7:30 PM.
