CHESTNUT HILL, Massachusetts (Ticker) -- Boston College took out some frustrations on Central Michigan.

The Eagles rebounded from their loss at Miami last week to rout the Chippewas, 43-0, for their first shutout in nearly seven years.

Boston College (3-1) recorded its first shutout since blanking Pittsburgh, 17-0, on October 7, 1995, a span of 80 games. The Eagles had more than twice as many yards as Central Michigan, outgaining the Chippewas, 525-242.

Boston College suffered a 38-6 loss to the top-ranked Hurricanes, but only trailed, 10-6, at the half.

Brian St. Pierre completed 25-of-35 passes for 314 yards and three touchdowns, while Derrick Knight rushed for 102 yards and a TD on 19 carries.

St. Pierre threw TD passes of 15 yards and 31 yards to Jamal Burke, then tossed a seven-yard scoring strike to Keith Hemmings with 28 seconds left in the first half to give the Eagles a 24-0 lead at the intermission.

Sandro Sciortino kicked three field goals for Boston College, which is off next week before hosting undefeated Virginia Tech on October 10.

Derrick Vickers completed just 12-of-25 passes for 88 yards with an interception for Central Michigan (3-2), which has dropped two straight after opening with three wins.

The Chippewas rushed for 154 yards, led by Robbie Mixon, who ran for 98 yards on 28 carries.
