BOSTON - Dave Shinskie returned after being taken out in the first half and threw a pair of third-quarter touchdown passes, and Boston College took advantage of five Kent State turnovers to win 26-13 on Saturday.
The Eagles led 6-3 when Shinskie threw a 23-yard strike through traffic to Bobby Swigert. After Kent State returner Dri Archer fumbled a punt at his own 31-yard line, Shinskie threw across the field into the front corner of the end zone and Clyde Lee brought it down to give the Eagles a 20-6 lead.
Boston College (2-0) has beaten Kent State in three straight seasons by a combined score of 81-20; last year, the Golden Flashes didn't get across midfield until the fourth quarter.
Kent State (1-1) had two fumbles and three interceptions and ran for 4 net yards with starting running back and punt returner Eugene Jarvis out with a groin injury.
