  Phil Jurkovec threw for 304 yards and three touchdowns and scrambled for a 33-yard run that set up the game-winning field goal on Saturday as Boston College knocked Louisville quarterback Malik Cunningham out of the game and beat the Cardinals 34-33. Cunningham ran for three touchdowns and threw for another before finishing the game on the sideline. He was taken out for one play in the third quarter following a hit to the head; he came back for two full series before backup Brock Domann handled the last two possessions of the game. The second, after Connor Lytton's 26-yard field goal gave BC the lead with 1:56 left, ended where it started after four straight incompletions.

Boston College then ran out the clock - or tried to. With 2 seconds left for the fourth down play, Jurkovec took several steps back before kneeling and the time showed 0:00. But after the teams left their benches for the postgame handshakes - and some BC fans joined them - the officials put 1 second back on the clock and gave Louisville a final play. Domann's pass was intercepted at the 8 yard line by Kam Arnold. Zay Flowers caught five passes for 151 yards - including touchdowns of 57 and 69 yards - and Alex Broome ran for a 40-yard score for BC (2-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). Cunningham threw for 186 yards and ran for 53 more for Louisville (2-3, 0-3). - Boston College/AP College Football

Joe Fagnano went 21 for 43 with 289 yards passing with two TDs and two interceptions for the Black Bears (0-3).

Maine, a heavy underdog, led 10-7 in the opening quarter before BC scored on three of its next four possessions to open a 28-10 halftime edge. Jurkovec's 2-yard TD toss to tight end Takacs in the left corner of the end zone with just over a minute left in the opening quarter gave the Eagles the lead for good. Williams' 9-yard jet sweep for a score capped the ensuing drive and made it 21-10. Garwo scored on a 1-yard run with just over a minute left in the half. Fagnano's 17-yard TD toss to Shawn Bowman gave the Black Bears their three-point edge. - Boston College/AP College Football

  ESPN TOP 100 PRESEASON 2022 CFB PLAYERS (Selected Aug. 17): No. 98. Zay Flowers, WR, Boston College, Senior. Notable 2021 stats: 746 yards, 5 TDs. Last year's ranking: 83. Flowers made headlines in the offseason when he turned down lucrative NIL offers from intermediaries to enter the NCAA transfer portal, staying at Boston College for his senior season. With a healthy Phil Jurkovec back at quarterback and a new offensive coordinator, the belief is the Eagles will utilize Flowers more across the board and put him in position to make plays from multiple spots. - ESPN.com

  First-year offensive coordinator John McNulty has marveled at his thoroughness, meticulousness, and discipline. When he introduces a concept, Phil Jurkovec grasps it immediately. There's never any gray area, McNulty said, and Jurkovec is never going to wing anything or leave out any possible wrinkle. "He's already processed A to G, so to speak, and he's on to H," McNulty said. McNulty said Jurkovec will be a "hugely intriguing" prospect next year if he breaks out like former Pittsburgh QB Kenny Pickett.

He said he's the old prototypical-size quarterback with new-prototypical skills. "I don't see any reason why he's not in that mix of first-round guys," McNulty said. "There's only so many guys that can do these things." But first, Jurkovec has unfinished business at BC. Shimko talks with him every day, and he's never heard Jurkovec mention the NFL draft. His father, Jim Jurkovec, credits Hafley & Co. for changing the trajectory of his son's journey and helping him regain his mojo. He sees a familiar version of his son that had been absent for too long. "I think it's evident in the people that I speak with that he's a different person," Jim Jurkovec said. "He's happier, he's more content. He's at peace with where he is and who he is." - Boston Globe

  Boston College coach Jeff Hafley revealed a surprising tidbit at the ACC Kickoff on Wednesday about last year's 17-3 win over Virginia Tech. According to Hafley, starting quarterback Phil Jurkovec played the game with only 50% of his normal grip strength. Oh, and he didn't really practice leading up to the game either. Jurkovec got the surprise start against the Hokies after missing six straight games with a broken bone in his throwing hand.

Boston College's training staff expected Jurkovec to miss the rest of the season, and told Halfey as much. "He wasn't supposed to come back," Hafley said. "But the Friday before [playing Virginia Tech] the doctors told me could be cleared to practice and play. The bone was healed, and he could not hurt it anymore, but he would be at about 50% grip strength." That wasn't an estimate either. The trainers compared measurement's of Jurkovec's grip strength from when he was healthy to numbers after his cast came off. "The doctor has a grip machine," Jurkovec said. "With the hand being immobilized for awhile, the joint suffered from it. The bone was fully healthy, but the joint didn't have any motion." - Richmond Times-Dispatch
