ACC Football Roundup
The ACC roundup …BOSTON ó Jonathan Dwyer ran for 108 yards, scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a 43-yard run midway through the fourth quarter on Saturday as Georgia Tech beat Boston College 19-16.

But Crane was sacked in the end zone for a safety, and four plays after the free kick Dwyer broke free on a pitch around the right side for the touchdown.
