Boston College 24, Miami 17

KUECHLY AND HARRIS (Al Diaz/Miami Herald)
Luke Kuechly ran an interception back for a touchdown and became Boston College's all-time tackles leader, and the Eagles picked Jacory Harris off four times in his final college game as the Eagles knocked off the inconsistent and deflated Hurricanes.

The Canes announced earlier this week that they would not accept a bowl game invitation because of an ongoing NCAA investigation into the athletic department and compliance practices, a probe born after a former booster said he provided 72 Hurricane players and recruits with extra benefits from 2002 through 2010.

For Miami, the biggest news wasn't the outcome in the season finale for both teams. It announced during the fourth quarter that coach Al Golden has agreed to a four-year extension through Feb. 1, 2020. 

Chase Rettig threw two touchdown passes to Chris Pantale for Boston College (4-8, 3-5 ACC). Kuechly also topped his single-season ACC record for tackles, passing the mark of 183 he set last year.
Lamar Miller had a 79-yard touchdown run for Miami (6-6, 3-5), the longest carry by a Hurricane since 2000.

Harris had thrown five interceptions all season entering the day. He matched a career-worst with the four on Friday, hardly the way the Miami Northwestern product wanted to see his career end.
