  Draft Scout by Conference

  Boston College scored 10 points in the final 1:11 to secure an improbable 24-21 plug-ugly victory over Sun Belt Conference spoiler Texas State in BC's home opener Saturday night at Alumni Stadium. Aaron Boumerhi, who waited out three straight timeouts, kicked a 36-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining to complete the Eagles' remarkable comeback. BC improved to 2-0 and will host North Carolina next Saturday. "That was something else and its very rare there are three timeouts left at that point," said Boumerhi. "But I was kind of expecting it, what else were they going to do with them?"

Sophomore quarterback Phil Jurkovec flawlessly executed short and intermediate passes on the Eagles' final two drives. He completed 7-of-9 passes and tied the game 21-21 on a 5-yard toss to tight end Hunter Long with 1:11 to play. The Bobcats imploded on their final possession and gave BC the ball back on its 33 with 47 seconds remaining. With the Bobcats playing a prevent defense, Jurkovec completed five straight short passes to set up the winning field goal. "Coach (Frank) Cignetti was dialing up some multiple coverage beaters that had check-downs whenever they were dropping out," said Jurkovec. "I just decided to check the ball down and get whatever was open with what they were giving us." - Boston Herald
