BOSTON (AP) — Andre Williams ran for 339 yards to break Boston College's single-season and single-game rushing records, leading the Eagles to a 38-21 victory over North Carolina State on Saturday and helping them qualify for a bowl game for the first time in three seasons.

Williams broke Mike Cloud's single-season record of 1,726 yards on a strange play in the fourth when he broke free on a 65-yard run but fumbled just before the goal line. On his school record-tying 42nd carry of the day, he scored on a 34-yard touchdown run.

With the win, the Eagles (6-4, 3-3 Atlantic Coast Conference) became bowl eligible in Steve Addazio's first season as head coach.

Backup quarterback Pete Thomas completed 22 of 33 passes for 207 yards for N.C. State (3-7, 0-7).
