Kentron Poitier went up to grab a 31-yard touchdown reception, the first score on his FSU career. Darion Williamson caught five passes for 98 yards, both of which are career highs.
Florida State's defense didn't allow BC (1-3, 0-2) to cross midfield in the first half. The Eagles punted four times and Phil Jurkovec was picked off twice, once each by Omarion Cooper and Greedy Vance. BC finished with seven punts.
BC scored its first points late in the third quarter, when Jurkovec connected with Alex Broome on a 5-yard TD reception.
