Jonas Gray rushed for a touchdown, David Ruffer kicked three field goals and No. 24 Notre Dame recovered an onside kick with just under 2 minutes to play to hold off Boston College 16-14 on Saturday.
The win was the fourth straight for the Irish (8-3), who matched last year's victory total. But it was a costly win, with Gray leaving in the third quarter with an apparent knee injury.
The Eagles' Chase Rettig capped a 72-yard drive with a 7-yard scoring pass to Bobby Swigert with 1:57 to play. But Robby Toma recovered the onside kick, and Boston College didn't get the ball back until there were eight seconds left. The Eagles (3-8) lateraled several times before Irish linebacker Troy Niklas made the final tackle around the Boston College 14.
