If it was Larry Coker's final game at Miami, at least the Hurricanes sent him off with a victory. Kirby Freeman threw for 181 yards and a touchdown, Javarris James' 2-yard run in the third quarter put Miami ahead to stay, and the Hurricanes' defense stifled No. 18 Boston College in rallying for a 17-14 win last night. The Hurricanes (6-6, 3-5 Atlantic Coast Conference) snapped a four-game losing streak and became bowl-eligible. Soon, they'll know if they'll get an invitation to a postseason matchup - and if the embattled Coker will be coaching.

Dee Brown backpedaled with his right arm held high and wrist cocked after making a three-pointer. It was a sight No. 1 Illinois forced Michigan State to get used to. Luther Head scored 22 points, Brown had 18, and the Fighting Illini made 13 three-pointers to remain undefeated with an 81-68 victory over the 12th-ranked Spartans last night in East Lansing, Mich. Illinois (22-0 overall, 8-0 Big Ten) was expected to face a tough test against Michigan State (14-4, 5-2) in an arena known to be raucous.

Boston College will join the Atlantic Coast Conference as its 12th member, guaranteeing the league a future football playoff game while landing another major television market. The school had until Nov. 1 to accept the ACC's offer, but agreed in less than four hours after ACC presidents and chancellors voted unanimously yesterday to include Boston College in their expansion plans. Big East bylaws require that a team give 27 months' notice to leave that conference or face a reported $5 million exit fee - meaning the Eagles cannot begin participating in ACC sports until 2006.

Marc Dowdell, a polite and unassuming Villanova junior who majors in business and favors the button-down look, has recently become a basketball terror. The 6-foot-9 center and forward has been charging to the basket with no regard to life or limb, his or anybody else's. Last night, in a generally sloppy and ugly game, Dowdell - who is more likely to be described as awkward than athletic - fit in perfectly. Dowdell scored a career-high 18 points, added four rebounds and three assists, and led Villanova to a 72-59 Big East win over Boston College at the Conte Forum.

No. 24 Pittsburgh snapped a three-game losing streak and made sure the Big East race will come down to the final weekend of the regular season. Chris Taft had 12 points and eight rebounds to lead the visiting Panthers (19-7, 9-6), 72-50, over No. 5 Boston College last night. The Eagles (23-3, 12-3), who are leaving for the Atlantic Coast Conference next season, could still win the Big East outright or share it if they beat Rutgers on Saturday. No. 15 Connecticut, which is a half-game behind BC, plays Georgetown tomorrow and No. 13 Syracuse on Saturday.

Boston College cornerback Kiernan Speight, accused but exonerated in the gambling scandal that led to the suspension of 13 teammates, said yesterday he will not return to the team. "Right now, I think the door's been shut as far as I'm concerned," he said during a news conference. "I'm going to go . . . finish the semester out and put the whole thing behind me and try to start anew somewhere. " The sophomore was among four players confronted by the team's captains and coach Dan Henning during a contentious meeting following the Eagles' Halloween night loss to Pittsburgh.

Germantown Academy's Zach Burkhart and Jess Zettlemoyer closed the Philadelphia Scholastic Rowing Association season by claiming gold in the boys' and girls' varsity single, respectively, in the City Championships. The seniors, both on the rise, were back on the Schuylkill on Friday, this time looking to excel for the Patriots in the 89th annual Stotesbury Cup Regatta.

PENN STATE quarterback Christian Hackenberg is widely viewed as a future pro. It also is abundantly clear to one NFL draft analyst that he has some work to do before entering the selection process, which he can do as soon as next year. "He needs to drastically play better than he did [in 2014] if he has any hope of going in the first three rounds," said Russ Lande, president of GM Jr. Scouting and college scouting director for the Big Ten Network, the CFL's Montreal Alouettes and 120Sports.com.

After he was introduced as Penn's head basketball coach, Steve Donahue looked up at his larger-than-life photo on the scoreboard of the Palestra. Asked for his thoughts, Donahue said, "That's nuts. " Then Donahue made fun of his tie up on the big screen. The new man in charge at this place began ticking off names, "Chuck Daly and Jimmy Lynam and Jimmy Boyle - it's just amazing, the legacy of coaches that have coached here. It's surreal. It really is. . . . I've been very fortunate in my career to be in a lot of different situations.

In choosing a new basketball coach, Penn is reaching back to its glory days, replacing a player who starred in the early 1990s with an assistant coach from the same era. Penn will introduce Steve Donahue as coach on Tuesday, replacing Jerome Allen. The former Cornell and Boston College coach had been the top target from the beginning, according to one source. Donahue, 52, also had been mentioned as a possibility for the Holy Cross job. And his name came up in recent days in speculation about the George Mason job. That was before former Villanova assistant Paul Hewitt was let go Thursday as George Mason's coach.

The first question from the audience was asked by Johnny Gaudreau's sister Kaitlin, a sophomore at Gloucester Catholic. "Who's your favorite sibling?" Kaitlin Gaudreau asked of the Gloucester Catholic product who has become known across the continent as "Johnny Hockey. " Back at his old high school for a pep rally and the retirement of his jersey on Monday afternoon, Johnny Gaudreau dealt with the loaded query from his kid sister as deftly as he handles the puck on a three-on-two rush for the Calgary Flames.

NEW YORK - Sam Ficken lined up next to his kneeling holder and, with his head down looking at the torn-up field, counted three steps back. Penn State's senior placekicker picked his head up and stared at the uprights directly in front of him for a brief moment. The lanky, 6-2, 186-pound Indiana native then took two steps to the left and twisted his shoulders right to left. He was ready; ready to deliver Penn State its most significant, far-reaching win in years. The Nittany Lions (7-6)

NEW YORK - Penn State's nation-leading run defense allowed Boston College a sizable 285 yards on the ground in the Pinstripe Bowl on Saturday. But it was the 2 yards quarterback Tyler Murphy didn't gain on a third-down scramble near the goal line that opened the window for a successful Nittany Lions comeback. Safety Marcus Allen hauled down Murphy to hold the Eagles to a field goal with less than three minutes in regulation, allowing a 44-yard field goal from Sam Ficken to tie the game and send it into overtime.

NEW YORK - It had been a long time, more than three months to be exact, since Christian Hackenberg looked like the confident quarterback who had excited Penn State fans during his 2013 freshman year, who was on everyone's top-10-in-the-nation list at the start of the season. On Saturday at Yankee Stadium, Hackenberg showed a captivated sellout Pinstripe Bowl crowd of 49,012 that he could still be that guy, leading the Nittany Lions back from a two-touchdown deficit against Boston College and carrying the game into overtime.
