Recap


North Carolina State 27, Boston College 10
: Mike Glennon threw for three touchdowns, two to Tobais Palmer, and Shadrach Thornton gained 105 yards on the ground as the host Wolfpack pulled away from the hapless Eagles in the regular-season finale for both teams.

North Carolina State (7-5, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) intercepted Chase Rettig three times, turning each into a touchdown. David Amerson picked off a Rettig pass and returned it 55 yards for a score to make it 14-3 just before halftime.

Rolandan Finch had 19 carries for 144 yards and a score for Boston College (2-10, 1-7), which finished with double-digit losses for the first time since the 1978 edition went 0-11. Rettig completed only 16 of 45 passes for 123 yards, although he did become the fourth quarterback in Eagles history to amass at least 3,000 yards in a season.

The Wolfpack started slow but broke through in the second. Glennon, who was 27-for-41 for 245 yards, converted a big fourth-and-8 and then found Quintin Payton for a 4-yard scoring strike to make it 7-3 with 9:05 remaining in the second.

Finch's TD with 5:18 to go in the third made it a four-point game. Glennon then capped an 11-play drive with an 8-yard TD pass to Palmer and Rettig threw his third pick on the first play of the ensuing possession. It took Glennon just two plays before he connected again with Palmer to make it 27-10 with 23 seconds left in the third.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The Eagles ended a dreadful season in the sack game. They allowed 36 sacks while getting to the opposing quarterback only six times. ... BC wide receiver Alex Amidon set the school record for catches in a season with 78. He already set the receiving yards record earlier this season. ... Wolfpack coach Tom O'Brien improved to 2-4 against the team he coached from 1997-2006. ... Glennon is the first quarterback in school history to record two 30-TD seasons.
