Another quarter, and another Michael Walker punt return setting up a Boston College touchdown. After Central Michigan's Jack Sheldon punted one low and only 33 yards, Walker ran up and never broke stride, snagging the ball and returning it 29 yards to the Chippewa 18-yard line.

Following a CMU penalty, Jon Hilliman pounded it in two plays later to give the Eagles a 21-8 advantage. BC did give up a touchdown to CMU, following a nice catch and run by Chippewa running back Jonathan Ward, but answered with some stout defense and solid special teams. The other highlight of the second quarter came when BC punter Mike Knoll booted one 52 yards to pin the Chips at their own 5.

After the BC defense held, CMU's low punt to Walker set up the aforementioned touchdown.

Lukas Denis also came up with his fourth interception of the season, when CMU quarterback Shane Morris threw it right to the Everett native at his free safety spot.

Will BC continue taking care of business in the second half?
