(Miami Hurricanes) – A motivated Boston College team defended its home field and honored an Eagles’ hero, defeating the University of Miami, 27-14.
Friday’s game served as the annual Red Bandana Game in honor of Welles Crowther, a former BC lacrosse player who saved over a dozen lives in the South Tower of the World Trade Center during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Eagles (6-2, 3-1 ACC) jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, totaling 426 yards of offense and forcing two turnovers on their way to victory over the Hurricanes (5-3, 2-2 ACC).
After missing the previous two games due to injury, BC star running back AJ Dillon announced his presence early with a 25-yard run on Boston’s College’s first play from scrimmage.
The Eagles used a trick play to get deep into Miami territory as quarterback Anthony Brown threw a backwards pass to receiver Jeff Smith, who then tossed it back to Brown for a 27-yard gain to the Miami 12.
