Bos­ton Col­lege tops strug­gling Louisville

The Charlotte Observer (Sunday) - - College Football -

David Bai­ley ran for 112 yards and a touch­down, Travis Levy re­cov­ered a blocked punt in the end zone for a score for the sec­ond straight week and Bos­ton Col­lege beat strug­gling Louisville 38-20 on Satur­day.

An­thony Brown com­pleted 16 of 22 passes for 179 yards and a TD for the Ea­gles (5-2, 2-1 At­lantic Coast Con­fer­ence). Ben Glines rushed for 107 yards.

Ja­won Pass was 17 of 31 with 170 yards and ran for a TD for the Car­di­nals (2-5, 0-4). It was Louisville’s fourth con­sec­u­tive loss.

Bai­ley’s 1-yard TD run made it 31-20 early in the fourth quar­ter af­ter BC passed on a field goal at­tempt and con­verted a 4th-and-4 at the Car­di­nals’ 23.

Colton Licht­en­berg’s 38-yard field goal with 4 sec­onds left gave BC a 24-20 half­time edge in a first-half filled with big mo­men­tum-shift­ing plays and turnovers.

The Ea­gles grabbed a 14-0 lead in the open­ing three min­utes be­fore they fum­bled it away on con­sec­u­tive pos­ses­sions, set­ting up Louisville’s two short scor­ing drives.

Ma­lik Cun­ning­ham’s 1-yard TD run came af­ter Glines’ fum­ble at the Ea­gles’ 6, but the ex­tra point was blocked. On the en­su­ing kick­off, Michael Walker fum­bled and Has­san Hall’s 3-yard scor­ing run capped a 40-yard drive.

BC re­gained the lead when Nolan Borg­ersen blocked Ma­son King’s punt. The ball bounced into the end zone where Levy re­cov­ered it. He scored off a blocked punt last week in the Ea­gles’ loss at then-No. 23 North Carolina State.

The Car­di­nals moved ahead 20-14 on Pass’ 3-yard run.
