CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. -- It’s a simple question with a complicated answer. How do you want to be remembered? Just seven words, that question has wide-ranging implications. How you answer says a lot about what you value in life, how you think of yourself and the place in the world you inhabit. That kind of introspection may be more common among the middle-aged and older, sure, but as the end of their college careers approaches, some of Steve Addazio’s Boston College Eagles are contemplating it, as well.

The center judge was behind center Cam Erving, thus in Winston’s way. The center judge put his hand on Winston’s chest to prevent him from getting Erving, and Winston responded by trying to move the official out of the way.

During the week, when asked about traveling to Tallahassee to take on No. 3 Florida State, Steven Daniels said something interesting. “This is our last road game, probably the biggest game of the year on our schedule against the No. 1 team in the nation,” he said. “You actually dream about this as a senior. You want this big battle, this big test. So we’re just gonna go down there and do what we do best.” That’s exactly what the Eagles did, staying stingy on defense and devoted to the run on offense to give themselves a chance at the upset in the fourth quarter.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Go, Florida State!Come on, Jameis!Let’s go, Jimbo!I don’t know about you, but that’s what I wanted to yell when the Florida State Seminoles took the field on Saturday against Boston College.And when kicker Roberto Aguayo booted a 26-yard field goal with three seconds left to give the No. 3-ranked Seminoles a 20-17 victory over the Eagles, I wanted to be right there in the student section, sitting in the pouring rain, doing the tomahawk chop and the war chant and chanting the end of school fight song:
Ohio State finally took control of its game against Indiana in the fourth quarter. That was still better than Florida State.As usual, the only time the Seminoles were in control against Boston College was when the game was over.After a week in which game control became a thing — too much of a thing, really — a couple of College Football Playoff contenders gave the selection committee something to think about by taking a while to put away big underdogs.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Jameis Winston drove top-ranked Florida State 66 yards to put Roberto Aguayo in position for a 26-yard field goal with 3 seconds remaining, and the Seminoles remained perfect with a 20-17 victory over Boston College on Saturday.Florida State (11-0, 8-0 ACC, No. 3 CFP) has been plagued by slow starts throughout the season and the Seminoles went into the fourth quarter tied 17-all with the Eagles (6-5, 3-4). But with less than five minutes left, Winston helped engineer another game-winning drive.
