Boston College Vs. Notre Dame Final Score: Irish Take Narrow Win Against Underwhelming Eagles

Remember when Notre Dame's pillowy-soft schedule was going to propel them to double-digit wins? Well, that hasn't quite happened, but the Irish have picked up their eighth victory of the season with a two-point win against Boston College, which isn't exactly a team full of giant-killers right now.

The Irish did have an impressive 417 yards of total offense, but only turned that into 16 points. Jonas Gray's 26-yard touchdown run early in the game was the only touchdown for Notre Dame all day. Tommy Rees was 24-of-39 for 256 yards and an interception, the Irish's sole turnover. The Notre Dame defense limited BC to 254 yards.

But for whatever reason, the Irish couldn't shake the Eagles. Chase Rettig's seven-yard touchdown pass to Bobby Swigert pulled BC to within two, but the on-side kick went to Notre Dame and the Irish ran all but the final few seconds off the clock and clinched the game.
