Saturday, September 6, 2008. (AP) -- Georgia Tech got past Boston College 19-16 today after scoring nine fourth quarter points, including a 43-yard touchdown run by Jonathan Dwyer.

BC took a 16-10 lead late in the third quarter with a touchdown pass from Chris Crane to Ifeanyi Momah.

But Crane was sacked in the end zone for a safety before Dwyer gave the Yellow Jackets the lead with his long scoring run.

Georgia Tech then stopped BC on downs and iced the game between the Atlantic Coast Conference rivals after two rushes by quarterback Josh Nesbitt, including a 30-yard scramble.

Dwyer ran for 108 yards on the day. Georgia Tech also got a rushing touchdown from Nesbitt.

Georgia Tech had a rough first half, as three fumbles led to three BC field goals. But Crane had two fumbles and an interception in the second half.
