CHESTNUT HILL, Massachusetts (Ticker) -- Boston College spotted
North Carolina State an double-digit lead. It turned out to be
nothing Matt Ryan could not overcome.

Porter, Ryan ran for two touchdowns and passed for another to
lead the Eagles to a 30-10 Atlantic Coast Conference victory
over the Wolfpack.
Brian Clark scored on a 96-yard pass from Marcus Stone just
under five minutes into the game and John Deraney kicked a
48-yard field goal to open a 10-0 lead for the Wolfpack with
6:48 left in the first quarter.
Boston College (7-4, 4-3 ACC Atlantic) took a 17-10 lead at the
half after Ryan hit Chris Miller with a 17-yard TD pass with 24
seconds left in the second quarter.
Ryan, who completed 8-of-16 passes for 185 yards, ran for a
three-yard TD in the third quarter and added a one-yard scoring
run with 1:50 to play to cap the scoring.
L.V. Whitworth, who pulled the Eagles within 10-7 with a
one-yard TD run late in the first quarter, finished with 119
yards on 26 carries.
NC State (4-5, 3-5 Atlantic) averaged 247 yards rushing over its
last two games, including a win over Florida State, but was
limited to 59 yards on 40 carries.
