BOSTON -- Wes Davis recovered a fumble in overtime to foil Wake Forest's drive for a winning touchdown as Boston College held on for a 27-24 win behind Dave Shinskie's three scoring passes on Saturday.
The Demon Deacons had rallied behind Riley Skinner's two touchdown passes in the last 3:44 of regulation before the Eagles (3-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) went ahead on a 23-yard field goal by Steve Aponavicius on the first series of overtime.
Wake Forest (2-2, 0-1) then got its chance to start at the 25-yard line and moved to a first down at the 4 on four running plays. It tried another run but no one was in position to take a handoff and Skinner ran to the left without blockers.
Isaac Johnson forced the fumble and Davis recovered, ending the game and sending BC's players rushing onto the field.
