Boston College 34, Louisville 27

BOSTON - Boston College quarterback Dennis Grosel threw for two touchdowns and added a 44-yard run to lead the Eagles to a 34-27 victory over Louisville.

Grosel completed 4 of 7 passes for 44 yards for the Eagles (6-4, 5-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). He also broke free for the run that set up a falling 11-yard touchdown catch by CJ Lewis that made it 27-13 early in the fourth quarter.

Jurkovec completed 15 of 19 passes for 203 yards before the pocket collapsed around him in the third quarter and knocked him out of the game. He spent the rest of the game on the sideline with his left knee wrapped; Hafley said it was too early to say whether the injury is serious.

David Bailey ran 10 times for 53 yards and two touchdowns before he also left with an (unspecified) injury. Zay Flowers caught seven passes for 87 yards for the Eagles.

Malik Cunningham threw for 294 yards and ran for 133 more for Louisville (3-7, 2-7). After Grosel hit Jehlani Galloway from 21 yards out to make it 34-20 with just under five minutes remaining, Cunningham connected with Dez Fitzpatrick on a short pass-and-run for a 69-yard score.

Boston College went three and out, and Cunningham was moving the Cardinals before Jahmin Muse tipped a pass at the line of scrimmage and defensive lineman Shita Sillah intercepted it at the Louisville 47.

Cunningham finished 19 for 31, with two touchdowns and an interception, hitting Fitzpatrick eight times for 182 yards.
