TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Bert Reed's 42-yard touchdown run on a
reverse lifted 16th-ranked Florida State to a 24-19 win Saturday
over Boston College as the Seminoles overcame four turnovers by
quarterback Christian Ponder to win their fifth straight.
Boston College (2-4, 0-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) took a 19-17
lead early in the fourth quarter on Nate Freese's fourth field goal
of the game. That followed a Ponder fumble at the Eagles' 44.
Ponder, who suffered through one of his poorest performances,
completed 19 of 31 passes for 170 yards and a pair of touchdowns -
3 yards to Lonnie Pryor and 10 yards to Beau Reliford.
Montel Harris rushed for 191 yards and safety Jim Noel had two
of three BC interceptions, including one he returned 43 yards for a
third quarter touchdown that pulled the Eagles to within 17-16.
Florida State (6-1, 4-0 ACC) led 14-6 at halftime.
