Boston College ended its first-half surge against Clemson with two of the wildest moments you'll see all year.

The action started with an Eagles' incredible fake field goal on 4th-and-2. Placekicker John Tessitore sprinted to the line of scrimmage and got Clemson to jump offsides and give Boston College the first down. 

The Tigers called a timeout before Eagles quarterback Phil Jurkovec connected with wide receiver CJ Lewis on an insane 18-yard touchdown pass. After a Clemson defender nearly knocked the ball from Lewis's hands, he bobbled it and managed to scoop it up before it fell to the ground. 

Tessitore's crucial role in drawing Clemson offsides was made even more special since his father—ABC broadcaster Joe Tessitore—got to call the moment. The proud dad managed to remain collected while describing the play.

The Tigers were already scared by the Eagles' dominant performance on Halloween, but the end of the second quarter will certainly have them spooked.

Boston College entered halftime with a 28–13 lead over Clemson, which was playing without starter Trevor Lawrence after he tested positive for COVID-19 this week. Freshman D.J. Uiagalelei started in his place on Saturday and led the Tigers to a 34-28 comeback victory.
