CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) Bryn Renner threw for two touchdowns and North Carolina snapped a four-game losing streak by routing Boston College 34-10 on Saturday.

Renner finished 18 of 21 for 227 yards with a 13-yard touchdown to Ryan Switzer and a 10-yarder to Bug Howard for the Tar Heels (2-5, 1-3 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Howard also caught a backbreaking 17-yard touchdown pass from change-of-pace quarterback Marquise Williams late in the third quarter. Williams and A.J. Blue had short scoring runs for the Tar Heels.

Andre Williams, the ACC's leading rusher, ran for 172 yards in his fifth 100-yard performance of the season and had a 56-yard touchdown run.

But facing a defense that allows an ACC-worst 456 yards per game, the Eagles (3-4, 1-3) managed just 261 total yards and converted just 5 of 16 third downs. Until the final five meaningless minutes, they took only five snaps in North Carolina territory.
