BOSTON (AP) – Phil Jurkovec threw three TD passes to Zay Flowers — the last a 25-yarder in overtime — and ran for a score and Boston College beat Pittsburgh 31-30.

The Panthers missed a point-after attempt to end the game.  

Jurkovec, a sophomore transfer from Notre Dame, was 19 of 35 for 358 yards as the Eagles (3-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) rebounded from a frustrating close loss to then-No. 12 UNC-Chapel Hill.

Flowers had six catches for 162 yards.

Kenny Pickett completed 25 of 48 for 266 yards for Pittsburgh (3-2, 2-2).
