Boston College stuns Wake Forest
By ESPN.com staff

In another wild game for the ACC, Boston College found its offense under quarterback Dave Shinskie and beat Wake Forest 27-24 in overtime.
Considering the Eagles had just 54 yards of total offense against Clemson last week, you can't give Boston College and its staff enough credit for this win. If anyone doubted Frank Spaziani as a head coach, this game should quiet those doubts if not erase them entirely. He and Gary Tranquill found a way to beat a veteran quarterback and a veteran coach. This is what Boston College does - it proves people wrong, and it does by playing smart, tough football.
Wake Forest had a busted play on its final possession, Riley Skinner fumbled, and the Eagles shook up the Atlantic Division standings simply by not being in last place.
