RALEIGH, N.C. - Mike Glennon threw three touchdown passes and David Amerson returned an interception for a score Saturday as North Carolina State defeated Boston College 27-10 in the teams' regular-season finale.

Glennon connected twice for touchdowns with Tobais Palmer in a span of 51 seconds late in the third quarter to propel the Wolfpack (7-5, 4-4 Atlantic Coast Conference). Glennon finished 24 of 37 for 230 yards.

Amerson recorded his 18th career interception and took it back 55 yards for a touchdown just before halftime to give N.C. State a 14-3 lead.

The Wolfpack overcame a shaky offensive performance in the first half -- one fumble, six punts -- to clinch a third consecutive winning season. With the loss, the Eagles (2-10, 1-7) capped the program's worst season since the 1978 team finished 0-11.

Rolandan Finch ran for 144 yards and a touchdown on 19 carries.
