No. 22 North Carolina State beats Boston College 33-7
BOSTON (AP) — Devin Leary scrambled free and threw a jump pass to Thayer Thomas for a 79 touchdown to help No. 22 North Carolina State run away from Boston College and win 33-7.
Leary threw for 251 yards and three touchdowns. He also completed a 40-yard TD on the opening drive on a pass that bounced off the back of the defender before Devin Carter gathered it in.
The Wolfpack also scored on a muffed snap by BC punter Grant Carlson.
N.C. State has its first road win and three straight overall -- including a victory over then-No. 9 Clemson — since a loss at Mississippi State on Sept. 11.
