boston college eaglesBOSTON (AP) — Jameis Winston threw for four touchdowns, including a 55-yard Hail Mary as time expired in the first half to help No. 8 Florida State rally from a slow start and beat Boston College 48-34 on Saturday.

Winston had first-half touchdown passes of 56 and 10 yards to tie the game after BC, coming off a 28-point loss to Southern California, opened a 17-3 lead. The desperation heave to Kenny Shaw made it 24-17, then Winston added a fourth TD pass in the second half as the Seminoles (4-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) pulled away.

In all, the Florida State freshman completed 17 of 28 passes for 330 yards and ran 14 times for 67 more.

Chase Rettig completed 19 of 29 passes for 197 yards and a career-high four touchdowns for BC (2-2, 1-1).
