BOSTON (AP) — Tyler Murphy set the Atlantic Coast Conference single-season record for rushing yards by a quarterback and threw a TD pass to lead Boston College to a 28-7 win over Syracuse on Saturday.
Tyler Rouse added a 42-yard scoring run and Jon Hilliman had a 7-yarder for the Eagles (7-5, 4-4 ACC), who are bowl-eligible for the second straight season under second-year coach Steve Addazio. It was also Boston College's second consecutive year with seven victories.
Murphy, a graduate transfer from Florida, had 11 carries for 20 yards, giving him 1,079 for the season. Clemson's Woodrow Dantzler held the previous mark with 1,061 yards, set in 2001.
AJ Long had 4-yard TD run, but completed just 7 of 18 passes for 59 yards with a costly interception that led to a Boston College TD.
It was the fifth straight loss for Syracuse (3-9, 1-7).
