BC quarterback Tyler Murphy may have broken the ACC single-season record for rushing yards by a QB with 1,079, but equally important was the strength of the Eagles passing game. Murphy was near perfect on the day, throwing for 160 yards and a touchdown on 13-of-17 passing to lead Boston College to its seventh victory of the season.
Myles Willis wasted little time in getting the Eagles on the scoreboard, taking the game's opening kickoff and running 95 yards untouched for the first score of the game.
After the victory, Steve Addazio talks about the physical win over Syracuse, his pride in BC's scrappy play and the impact of Tyler Murphy.
Murphy talked about the slow start, the hatred for the rival Syracuse Orange and riding this momentum into the bowl game.
