Williams Leads Boston College Past New Mexico State, 48-34

Saturday November 9, 2013


LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP and BCEagles.com) - Boston College tailback Andre Williams scored on two long runs in the fourth quarter Saturday to help the Eagles pull away from a stubborn New Mexico State team and escape with a 48-34 victory.

Williams, the leading rusher in the ACC and No. 2 in the FBS in yards per game, finished with 30 carries for 295 yards and two touchdowns. His two biggest, though, were the scoring runs that came on plays of 80 and 47 yards, both with less than a minute to go in the game, and broke a 34-34 tie.

Boston College (5-4) won for the second week in a row, following a win against Virginia Tech last week. However, it wasn't easy against NMSU (1-9), which has lost two in a row and whose only win this season has come against Abilene Christian. BC needs one more win to become bowl eligible.
