BOSTON (AP) — Denis Grosel hit Zay Flowers from 10 yards out in overtime to give Boston College a 41-34 to give the ACC school a lead it would later clinch with a defensive stop en route to a win over Missouri Saturday.
Brandon Sebastian’s interception of Missouri’s Connor Bazelak sealed the win. Boston College recovered after blowing two fourth-quarter leads. BC fans stormed the field to celebrate the win in the first-ever meeting between the two schools. It’s the Eagles’ first 4-0 start since Matt Ryan led them to eight straight victories to start the 2007 season. Missouri’s Harrison Mevis barely cleared the crossbar with a 56-yard field goal as time expired to send the game into overtime.
Bazelak threw for 303 yards on 30-41 passing attempts, with two interceptions and a touchdown. Missouri managed just 88 yards rushing on the day, while surrendering 275 yards on the ground to the Eagles.
The Tigers (2-2) return home for their SEC opener against Tennessee next Saturday.
