BOSTON -- Boston College running back Montel Harris set a school records of yards rushing and touchdowns in a single game in the Eagles' 52-20 win against North Carolina State on Saturday.

Harris rushed for 264 yards and had five touchdowns. The sophomore had two touchdown runs in the first half and added three more scores on the ground in the third quarter to claim the record.

Ten players previously had four rushing scores in a game for BC, with Darnell Campbell the last to do it 16 years ago.

Harris set the school record for rushing yards on a 9-yard run early in the fourth, surpassing the previous mark set by Phil Bennett in 1972.
