Boston College downs Michigan State in Champs Sports Bowl, extends Bowl streak to eight

Matt Ryan threw three touchdown passes as Boston College extended its Bowl Game winning streak to eight with a 24-21 victory over Michigan State in the Champs Sports Bowl on Friday.
Boston College won 11 games in a season for the first time since 1940, but it was a year that had the promise of being even better.
The Eagles were ranked No. 2 in the country in late October but ended the regular season losing three of five, including the Atlantic Coast Conference title game, so ended up in the Champs Sports Bowl.
Ryan finished completed 22 of 47 passes for 249 yards, but he also had an interception and a costly fumble.
Rich Gunnell had six receptions for 138 yards, including touchdown receptions of 29 and 68 yards.
BC's All-America safety Jamie Silva had two interceptions and was the game's most valuable player.
The Eagles sealed the win with their fourth interception of the game. Paul Anderson picked off Brian Hoyer's pass and returned it to the Michigan State 29-yard line with 2:29 remaining.
TCU 20, Houston 13
In Houston, quarterback Andy Dalton ran for a touchdown and Justin Watts had the go-ahead score to help Texas Christian University win the Texas Bowl _ its third bowl victory in the past three years.
The last time the Horned Frogs won a bowl in three consecutive seasons was 1936-39.
The Cougars had a chance to tie it with less than 30 seconds to play but Case Keenum's pass sailed just beyond the fingertips of Jeron Harvey in the end zone. He had two more shots at the end zone, but the ball fell short on the first and Chase Ortiz hit him as he threw the second to end the game.
Playing without coach Art Briles, who left in late November to coach at Baylor, the Cougars extended their bowl losing streak to eight games. Their last bowl win came in 1980.
Oregon State 21, Maryland 14
In San Francisco, Yvenson Bernard rushed for 177 yards and a touchdown in his final college game, and Oregon State pounded out a victory in the Emerald Bowl.
James Rodgers rushed for 115 yards, caught an early touchdown pass and recovered Bernard's fumble for the second half's only score as the Beavers won their fourth consecutive bowl game under coach Mike Riley and snapped Ralph Friedgen's three-game postseason winning streak at Maryland.
Bernard had 38 carries to finish as the second-leading rusher in school history.
The Terrapins stalled in the second half of their fifth loss in seven games.
The Beavers' vaunted rushing defense _ ranked second in the nation _ was as good as Maryland feared, holding the Terrapins to 2 yards on the ground in the first three quarters.
