Box score

RALEIGH, N.C. -Daniel Evans connected with John Dunlap for a 34-yard touchdown with 8.5 seconds to play to cap a stunning comeback and lead North Carolina State past No. 20 Boston College 17-15 on Saturday night.

Evans - a redshirt sophomore making his first career start - threw for 179 yards for the Wolfpack (2-2, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference), which trailed 15-10 in the final minute before Evans directed a 72-yard TD drive with no timeouts to stun the Eagles (3-1, 1-1).

After driving his team to the 34-yard line with 16.8 seconds left, Evans lofted a pass to the back right corner of the end zone for Dunlap. The receiver jumped to beat DeJuan Tribble to the ball, bobbled it, then pulled it in just before Paul Anderson arrived to make the hit.

The play sent the fans into a frenzy while stunning the Eagles' sideline. After a review upheld the catch, the Wolfpack kicked the extra point for the 17-15 lead.

Once Tribble returned the kickoff to the BC 37, the Wolfpack sideline spilled onto the field in exuberant celebration. Evans, meanwhile, calmly walked to join his teammates before stopping to receive a hug from Marcus Stone, the man he had beaten out for the starting job this week.

Matt Ryan threw for 149 yards and a touchdown for the Eagles, who finally felt the sting of a close loss after winning consecutive double-overtime games against Clemson and Brigham Young. L.V. Whitworth ran for 109 yards for Boston College.
