No. 21 Wake Forest beats BC 41-10, will play for ACC title

No. No.


No. 21 Wake Forest won a playoff spot in Atlantic Coast Conference’s championship game. Sam Hartman scored three passing touchdowns, and one additional on the ground for Wake Forest. The win beat Boston College by 41-10.

With No. December 4.

Hartman ran the ball in from seven yards away midway through quarter one. A 33-yard pass made by A.T. Perry put Hartman on the scoreboard at 14-0. When Brandon Sebastian made an interception of Hartman at the end line, it was 17-10. But BC won the third and out. Then Wake Forest got the win on Hartman’s seven-yard pass to Perry right before halftime.


BC (6-6, 2-6) ran off three straight three-and-outs — along with an interception — to start the third quarter, while Wake Forest extended its lead with a field goal and a 3-yard run by Christian Turner that made it 34-10.

Hartman completed twenty of 32 passes for 236 yard and ran eleven times for 51 yards. Perry caught four passes, totaling 81 yards.

Phil Jurkovec went 3-11 passing for 19 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. However, he led the Eagles in rushing with 66 yards.


Wake Forest: Clemson lost six consecutive Atlantic Division titles to the Demon Deacons. Their only appearance in the ACC championship games was in 2006, when they beat Georgia Tech.

Boston College: Four consecutive losses for the Eagles after Jurkovec was injured in what was initially believed to be a wrist injury. BC was still 2-2 after Jurkovec’s return. The team did not win against anyone else with a winning record throughout the season.


Clemson was also in the ACC title game, as was North Carolina State. N.C. State won against North Carolina to knock out Clemson on Friday, but it was unable to beat the Wolfpack in Wake Forest.


Wake Forest doesn’t look to make a major move, but that could change with a win over Pittsburgh next week.


32 of the Boston College players were affected by the flu during this week. Jurkovec and 15 other players were not able to practice on Wednesday.

Ten players were out of Saturday’s game, mostly backups.


On BC’s first possession of the second half, receiver Zay Flowers ran 73 yards on a reverse to reach the end zone, only to have the play called back for a blindside block thrown by Jurkovec against defensive tackle Miles Fox. The hit appeared legal on replays, however the call has not been reviewed.

Jurkovec then threw another screen pass to Pat Garwo, which was initially ruled to be a catch at BC 14. This line of play is the original one. The game was held up while the play was reviewed; the ball was determined to have touched the ground, meaning it was an incomplete pass and the ball was spotted — at the BC 14.
