BOSTON (AP) Boston College won a football game in a baseball park, and now the Eagles are going bowling.
AJ Dillon rushed for 200 yards and two touchdowns, breaking free on a 48-yard run and a 53-yard score on Saturday night as BC beat UConn 39-16 at Fenway Park to qualify for a bowl game for the fourth time in five years.
"It's an experience I'm not going to forget," said Dillon, a Connecticut native and New York Yankees fan who watched BC play Notre Dame at Fenway in 2015 and imagined himself breaking tackles in the ballpark. "(I was) saying, `Wow. It must be amazing to be on that field.' I got the opportunity to soak it all in."
