SATURDAY'S GAMES

BOSTON COLLEGE 55, BOWLING GREEN 24 - After two unimpressive wins, the seventh-ranked Eagles showed again they can dominate by beating Bowling Green 55-24 on Saturday behind Matt Ryan's four touchdown passes and the defense's four interceptions late in the first half.

Boston College is 6-0 for the first time in 65 years and has a chance to match their highest ranking in 23 years.

MARYLAND 28, GEORGIA TECH 26 - In his first career start, Chris Turner threw for 255 yards, and Lance Ball ran for three touchdowns as Maryland barely held on for a 28-26 victory Saturday over Georgia Tech. Travis Bell sent a 52-yard field goal attempt wide right with 54 seconds remaining. Andrew Gardner was whistled for holding on the previous play, knocking the Yellow Jackets back 10 yards and preventing them from lining up for what would have been a 40-yard try.

WAKE FOREST 41, DUKE 36 - Receiver
Kenneth Moore rushed for two touchdowns and Wake Forest withstood Thaddeus Lewis' four-TD performance and beat Duke 41-36 on Saturday.
Moore caught 11 passes for 100 yards and rushed four times for 84 yards, with scoring runs covering 21 and 53 yards for the Demon Deacons (3-2, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).


FSU 27 NC STATE 10 - Michael Ray Garvin returned an interception 43 yards for a touchdown to spark Florida State to its fourth straight victory, a 27-10 win Saturday over North Carolina State.
Garvin, a track All-American who finished sixth in the 100 meters at the NCAA finals and ran a leg on Florida State's championship 400-meter relay team, gave Florida State a 17-10 lead early in the third quarter with his first interception of the season.

VA TECH 41 CLEMSON 23 - An interception return, a punt return and a kickoff return, all for touchdowns -- and all typical for college football's masters of specal teams. "That's Beamer-ball," grinned Virginia Tech linebacker Vince Hall. "That's what we needed." And that's what sent coach Frank Beamer's 15th-ranked Hokies to a 41-23 victory over No. 22 Clemson on Saturday night.

VIRGINIA 23, MIDDLE TENNESSEE 21 - Chris Gould kicked a 34-yard field goal with 8 seconds left, redeeming himself for an earlier extra-point miss, and Virginia beat pesky Middle Tennessee 23-21 on Saturday for its fifth consecutive victory.

The Cavaliers (5-1) had 151 yards rushing and matched their longest winning streak since 2004, spoiling the Blue Raiders' (1-5) hopes of becoming the third Sun Belt team to knock off a school from a Bowl Championship Series conference this year. Troy had defeated Oklahoma State, and Florida Atlantic also won over Minnesota to score wins for the Sun Belt this season.
