Murphy's law was in full display Saturday night at Boston College,
Eagle quarterback Tyler Murphy rushed for 191 yards on 13 carries and a touchdown in B.C.'s 37-31 win over USC.
"Tyler Murphy played like a big time player here tonight." Boston College head coach Steve Addazio said.
"It means a lot to me." Murphy said. "It’s pretty easy on my part because I have guys who want to work and sacrifice for each other."
Those guys Murphy's referring to is Boston College's offensive line which dominated Southern California's defense allowing the Eagles to rush for 452 yards.
“Running the ball has always been our identity." Boston College center Andy Gallick said. "We always take pride in it, whether it’s working or not, we always try to get back to it. Getting ready for this weekend, we realized what kind of defensive front we were going against and the fronts USC had, the high caliber talent they have and we took it upon ourselves to show how good of an offensive line we can be. I think that tonight we showed that our rushing game speaks for itself.”
"The goal, obviously, of being Pac-12 champs is very alive for us," USC head coach Steve Sarkisian said. "I thought we came out playing well, and for whatever reason I thought we lost it. I've got to figure that out."
