Just when the game appeared headed for overtime, Boston College kicker Nate Freese hit a 52-yard field goal to give the Eagles a victory over Maryland on Saturday evening.
There was a time when things just weren't the same for quarterback C.J. Brown because of injury. Those days are behind him and Maryland is bowl eligible.
Injuries hit Maryland hard and many thought a bowl game was out of reach, coach Randy Edsall said, but now the focus is on moving forward.
Maryland went on the road to a hostile environment in Blacksburg and beat Virginia Tech in overtime, 27-24, to notch its sixth win of the season and become bowl eligible.
