WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Tommy Sweeney saw Boston Colleges defense do its part for most of Saturdays game against Wake Forest. The Eagles tight end realized the offense had to contribute, too.Patrick Towles threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to Sweeney with 8:03 remaining and Boston Colleges defense made two late stands in a 17-14 victory.We knew at some point we had to go down and win this game, Sweeney said.The winning drive covered 73 yards on eight plays, including a fourth-and-6 conversion when Towles threw for 16 yards to Sweeney. The next pass was delivered to Sweeney in the back of the end zone.They put me in perfect position, Sweeney said of the play called by the coaches. I just had to catch the ball.The Eagles (6-6, 2-6 ACC), whove won two games in a row, are bowl eligible for the third time in four seasons.Its just an amazing feeling, defensive end Harold Landry said of becoming bowl-bound. Were going to celebrate this win and getting bowl eligible and then weve got to get back to work.Wake Forests Mike Weaver was wide left on a 40-yard field goal attempt with 1:22 remaining. The Demon Deacons got the ball back again after a Boston College punt, but Lukas Denis interception clinched the outcome with 15 seconds to play.I think it shows resiliency of our team, Boston College coach Steve Addazio said. We battled, we scratched, we clawed, we hung in there and overcame a bunch of stuff. . We were able to scratch our way back in and get into a bowl game.Wake Forest held a 287-167 advantage in total offense.It shouldnt come down to one play or one kick, Wake Forest coach Dave Clawson said. There were a lot of opportunities to make plays earlier in the game that we didnt make.John Wolford threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes to help Wake Forest (6-6, 3-5) wipe out a 10-0 deficit. Wolford threw a 5-yard touchdown pass to Cam Serigne, and then a 37-yard scoring strike to Cortez Lewis, who fell into the end zone while making the catch.Boston College hadnt been scored upon for more than 105 minutes dating back to a Nov. 11 game at Florida State.Two early turnovers enabled the Eagles to score twice in the first quarter.John Johnsons interception of Wolford led to Mike Knolls 22-yard field goal to open the scoring. After Wake Forests Jessie Bates fumbled on a punt return, the Eagles went 25 yards, scoring on Myles Willis 11-yard touchdown run.Wake Forests first good scoring chance stalled with a failed fourth-and-1 play from the Boston College 19 in the first quarter. A dropped pass on fourth-and-2 from the Boston College 32-yard line thwarted a second-quarter drive for the Demon Deacons.Weaver missed a 51-yard field goal attempt in the final minute of the first half.Boston College led 10-0 at halftime despite racking up only 58 yards of total offense.To me, the bigger story is just, again, we start so slow on offense, Clawson said. We get shut out in the first half. We just didnt make plays.THE TAKEAWAYBoston College: The Eagles won two ACC games this season and both came in the state of North Carolina. The other was Oct. 29 at North Carolina State.Wake Forest: John Wolford returned after a one-game absence, missing the Clemson game with various ailments. Wolfords first pass attempt was batted into the air and caught by 325-pound senior offensive guard Tyler Hayworth, so that counted for his first career reception. It went for minus-4 yards.KEY MOMENTThe last of Landrys 4.5 sacks in the game came on third down on Wake Forests final possession and put the Demon Deacons in a desperate situation. Landry, playing in his home state, eclipsed Boston Colleges single-season sack record, which had been 15. He has 16.5 going into the bowl game.UP NEXTBoston College: The Eagles will head to a bowl for the first time since 2014 with their six-win regular season.Wake Forest: Wake Forest will await its bowl assignment, marking the teams first postseason appearance since 2011.

Dallas hasnt ruled out the star quarterback for Sunday nights game against Philadelphia, but all signs point to Romos back injury pushing Kyle Orton into the starting role after two years of limited play as the backup. Surely Ortons name isnt the first that comes to mind for fans wanting a change after years of damaging interceptions, fumbles or, most infamously, the field goal flub when Romo dropped the snap on a kick that could have won his first playoff game in 2006.

Though he led the Canucks to what was then a franchise record-shattering campaign in just his second season, Nonis was gone and replaced one year later. CHICAGO -- Greg Maddux was the Opening Day starter in his Braves debut when he beat his former team in Chicago in April of 1993. Cubs fan Dan Lepse remembers it well.Cubs lost 1-0, he said. Coldest I have ever been in my life.Lepse also recalls it was the day he proposed under the Wrigley Field marquee to his future wife Tricia, who immediately ran for the bathroom because it was the only place that had heat.The first person she told we were engaged was the bathroom attendant, he said.Ah, the Cub fan. Much has been said, mocked and dissected in regard to this unique species. Motivated by a deep, often familial and civic loyalty, energized by unbridled and childlike optimism and distinguished by a gnawing and perpetual state of angst, Cubs fans may resemble those from other cities and towns, but its the rare combination of these traits that sets them apart.Psychiatrist and lifelong Cubs devotee Neal Spira would not go so far as to mix business and pleasure and say Cubs fans are a textbook example of any particular psychosis.No, no, not textbook, Spira said. Maybe a paper, though. You could definitely write a paper about the psychology of the Cubs fan.Dr. Leo Weinstein, Spiras colleague at the Chicago Institute for Psychoanalysis, goes back to a central theme of psychotherapy in probing Cubs fans, and the theory that unconscious childhood feelings get expressed in adulthood.It taps into this feeling a lot of us have that things should be fair, that people should take turns and its our turn to win, he said. It also taps into the idea a lot of us believe subconsciously that if you suffer enough, youll be rewarded.Cubs fans have suffered for 108 years, so it only makes sense well be rewarded -- not because our team is good or that Theo Epstein and the front office have assembled a winning team, but because its right. And when [that] turns out not to be true, were upset. People have a hard time giving up that feeling ... but its a problematic way to live your life.Dan Lepse laughs at the prognosis but doesnt altogether dispute it.Lepse is a resident of Seattle, and he became a Cubs fan for life at age 8, when his father took him on a Midwestern baseball swing after their hometown Pilots moved to Milwaukee. On their trip to Wrigley, Seattle native Ron Santo hit a home run, Fergie Jenkins earned the win and a little boy fell in love.This year, Dan and Tricia celebrated their Sandberg anniversary, or in laymens terms, their 23rd. (Ryne Sandberg played as a second baseman for the Cubs and wore No. 23.)In addition to remembering the 40-degree temperatures and the wind whipping off the lake on that day in April 93, Dan also remembers his wife being none too happy with the amount of time she had to wait [for the proposal].But I guess that was the Cubs fan in me, he said.dddddddddddd Always leave em wanting more.The couple have three daughters: Sammy (after Sosa), Kerry (after Wood) and Addison (after the street bordering Wrigley). Dan has a Wrigley Field turnstile in his house.And when Lepse interviewed for his current job of sports information director at Seattle Pacific University eight years ago, he told them if the Cubs made the World Series, he would need to take that week off.Lepse would buy a ticket and go see the Cubs by himself during summer visits to his brother in Chicago.I have seen so many things in that ballpark that should have driven me away, things major leaguers should never do, the bad baseball you encountered seeing the Cubs at Wrigley for any number of years, Lepse said. Ive left the park really frustrated. But theres something about going to see a win, even if your team [is] in last place. Thats uplifting. Its not a lost cause.Psychologist and happiness researcher Stephen Schueller likened the addiction and devotion Cubs fans have to their team to learned helplessness.As things replay over and over, its easy to rationalize away a one-year thing, said Schueller, assistant professor of preventive medicine at Northwestern. You fail so often, you feel theres nothing you can do.Youre doomed to fail because youre a Cubs fan. Its a little sad. But Im an optimistic person, so I hope they win and break the curse.Of course, they already have broken the one that extends 71 years, the last time the team reached the World Series, which comes into some conflict with Schuellers study of happiness.Happiness is based on low expectations, he explained. When you have high expectations, a lot has to be delivered to get emotional. The Cubs were always that team you didnt expect to make it. ... But this year, they were a team of destiny and started out the season on such a historic pace, so fans had really high expectations, and thats really dangerous as far as ones emotional impact.A World Series loss could be very tough to take.It will be really hard on people, depending on how it goes, Spira said. If they really fold, I think people will be destroyed. If they go for it, people could feel good about it.Its inconceivable to some that the Cubs traditional cry of Wait til next year would take on a whole new meaning if they win the World Series. In the meantime, that long lost child in every Cubs fan can do little but wait.It has been 108 years [since the Cubs last won the World Series], so its long overdue, Weinstein said. For that reason, the thinking goes, we will win. The worlds magical forces will make the world just.Every year, were just waiting for justice to occur.
