Matt Ryan and the Boston College Eagles had clinched a berth in the ACC Championship a week earlier, but that didn't make Saturday's regular season finale against Miami any less important. BC's 2007 Heisman Trophy candidate was ready to put an end to the Eagles' 15-game losing streak against the 'Canes. Matty Ice led BC into the end zone twice in the second quarter, hitting LV Whitworth for an 8-yard touchdown, and then finding Kevin Challenger to make it a 14-nothing score at the half... With the game tied at 14 in the fourth quarter, Ryan connected with Rich Gunnell down the sideline for 49 yards... A play later, the senior quarterback found a diving Clarence Megwa in the end zone for the go-ahead score... The Eagles would not relinquish the lead again, earning a 28-14 victory. In the process, Ryan completed 26-of-43 for 369 yards, earning him his 8th 300-plus passing game of 2007 and landing him just under 4,000 yards on year. With his 3 touchdown connections, the captain finished with 28 in the regular season, breaking the mark previously held by Doug Flutie. For the maroon and gold, it was their first 10-win regular season since 1940 and the first time they had achieved back-to-back 10-overall-win seasons in program history. Ryan and the Eagles will play in next Saturday's ACC Championship against Virginia Tech, a rematch of BC's unforgettable comeback victory from October 25th. With a win, Boston College would earn a spot in the Orange Bowl and make its first ever BCS bowl game appearance.
