Army West Point at Boston College

Williams rushes for 5 TDs, BC beats Army 48-27

AP Sports Writer

BOSTON (AP) Andre Williams rushed for a career-high 263 yards and tied a school record by running for five touchdowns to lead Boston College to a 48-27 victory over Army on Saturday.

The game was played after the Department of Defense announced that football games involving service academies could be played while the partial government shutdown is in effect.

Williams entered the game as the Atlantic Coast Conference rushing leader with 515 yards and 128.8 per game, then built on that with the best performance of his career. The senior scored on runs of 34, 1, 37 and 3 yards before capping his scoring with another 34-yarder early in the fourth quarter as Boston College took a three-touchdown lead.

BC's single-game rushing record of 264 yards was set by Montel Harris in 2009 against North Carolina State. He also rushed for five touchdowns in that game.
