BOSTON (AP) — Phil Jurkovec hit Hunter Long for a game-tying touchdown with 1:11 left, and Aaron Boumerhi kicked a 36-yard field goal with 3 seconds to play as Boston College rallied to beat Texas State 24-21. The Eagles avoided losing to a three-touchdown underdog for the second season in a row. BC trailed by two touchdowns in the third quarter and was still down 21-14 in the final minutes when Jurkovec was forced to throw the ball away on a third down at the Texas State 16. But a late hit out of bounds gave the Eagles a first down, and two plays later Jurkovec hit Long from 5 yards out to tie it.
