In Pictures: Georgia Tech overcome Boston College at a rain-soaked Aviva Stadium

The game burst to life in the final quarter

In a game that had no score in the second quarter and just one each in the two quarters that bookended it, the fans were treated to three to finish off the game.

Boston College suffered from some poor play in the opening half with one interception and one fumble from QB Patrick Towles along with two missed field goals by Colton Lichtenber but remained just one score away from tying the game.

Georgia Tech won 17-14 in the end but not before a 74 yard TD run by Boston College's Jonathan Hilliman that excited the rain-soaked crowd at the Aviva.

One to forget? Maybe but the rain and conditions made for some excellent photos.
