Hot in Boston

CHESTNUT HILL, Mass - Boston in September is typically full of cool Cape Cod breezes, but not today. The temperature on the field turf in Alumni Stadium at game time topped out at 126.

But the Boston College team may be even hotter than the field.

Quarterback Matt Ryan threw his sixth touchdown of the season, completing a 15 yard pass to Kevin Challenger who dove into the end zone, putting BC up 7-0.

Though Ryan got the score, early indications show we might see a different BC team than the one that threw 52 passes last week against Wake Forest. Ryan threw the ball just twice while Andre Callender ran the ball five times in the 30-yard drive. Offensive coordinator Steve Logan has brought a wide-open style to BC, but he may be looking to take a bit of pressure of his star quarterback.

Right now it's NC State's quarterback, Harrison Beck, who is feeling the pressure from a stout BC defense. Nothing is working on the ground so far, and Beck very nearly threw his 2nd interception of the game.

BC has the ball back now - we'll see if Logan opens up the playbook
