BOSTON – Montel Harris carried 24 times for 114 yards, including a go-ahead 4-yard touchdown late in the third quarter, to lift surging Boston College to bowl eligibility with a 17-13 victory over slumping Virginia on Saturday.

The win was the fourth straight for the Eagles (6-5, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference) and makes them bowl eligible for the 12th straight season. Virginia (4-7, 1-6) has lost 6 of 8.

It was the eighth 100-plus yard game of the season for Harris, who moved into second place ahead of Mike Cloud on the school’s all-time list with 3,600 yards before leaving with a left knee injury. Derrick Knight (2003) is the leader with 3,725 yards.

BC quarterback Chase Rettig threw a 39-yard scoring strike to Alex Amidon, and Nate Freese booted a 23-yard field goal.

Harris’ score gave the Eagles a 17-13 lead late in the third quarter, one play after backup Andre Williams busted through the middle for 59 yards on his first carry of the day. The score capped a 96-yard drive.

Rettig was 10 of 19 for 152 yards with one interception. Williams ran 12 times for 108 yards.
