Fight With Nevada Vs Boston College ; Hunger Bowl

The storytellers who made Sunday's Kraft Fight Hunger Bowl out to be a hard-hitting battle between No. 13 Nevada's explosive running game and Boston College's stingy run defense apparently missed one important angle.

Fight With Nevada Vs Boston College ; Hunger Bowl

Nevada turned the Eagles offense into a mere rumor for most of the night, holding Boston College to 185 yards of total offense in a 20-13 victory at AT&T Park. The Eagles scored 10 points off turnovers, and those were two of only three times Boston College got into the red zone.

Rishard Marshall caught a touchdown pass and returned a punt for another score, and No. 13 Nevada used a strong defensive effort to cap its most successful season at college football's highest level by beating Boston College, 20-13, in the Fight Hunger Bowl on Sunday night at San Francisco.

"Our defense was huge tonight," Kaepernick said. "When we didn't make a play they did. For most of the night it was them making plays."Kaepernick threw for 192 yards and a touchdown for the Wolf Pack (13-1), who snapped a four-game bowl losing streak by tying a school record for wins in a season, set when it played in what used to be Division I-AA.The win was appropriately sealed by Khalid Wooten's interception on the final drive of the game for the Eagles (7-6).
