Boston College bowl eligible with 17-14 win over Wake Forest

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) Tommy Sweeney saw Boston College's defense do its part for most of Saturday's game against Wake Forest. The Eagles tight end realized the offense had to contribute, too.

Patrick Towles threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Sweeney with 8:03 remaining and Boston College's defense made two late stands in a 17-14 victory.

"We knew at some point we had to go down and win this game," Sweeney said.
