WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Patrick Towles threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Tommy Sweeney with 8:03 remaining and Boston College's defense made two late stands in a 17-14 victory against Wake Forest on Saturday.

The Eagles (6-6, 2-6 ACC) are bowl eligible for the second time in three seasons.

Wake Forest's Mike Weaver was wide left on a 40-yard field goal attempt with 1:22 remaining. The Demon Deacons got the ball back again after a Boston College punt, but Lukas Denis' interception clinched the outcome with 15 seconds to play.

John Wolford threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes to help Wake Forest (6-6, 3-5) wipe out a 10-0 deficit. Wolford threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Cam Serigne, and then a 37-yard scoring strike to Cortez Lewis, who fell into the end zone while making the catch.
