CHESTNUT HILL — Pro prospects Gerod Holliman and DeVante Parker were too much for Boston College Saturday night.

Holliman, a free safety, intercepted three passes while Parker caught eight passes for 144 yards to lead the visiting Louisville Cardinals past the Eagles, 38-19, Saturday night at a cold Alumni Stadium. For Holliman, it was his second straight game of at least two interceptions and he leads the nation with 13 picks. The all-time national record is 14 by Washington’s Al Worley in 1968.

Jon Hilliman had two touchdown runs for the Eagles, who fell to 6-4 and 3-3 in the ACC Atlantic. Brandon Radcliff had a pair of touchdown runs for the Cardinals (7-3, 4-2).

It was miserable night for BC quarterback Tyler Murphy, who was intercepted four times and finished 7-of-15 for 149 yards and a touchdown pass before being pulled for Darius Wade with three minutes left in the game. Murphy did finish with 41 yards rushing on 12 attempts, putting him over 1,000 on the season. He is the first ACC quarterback to reach the mark since 2009.

“It was a disappointing loss out there,” Eagles coach Steve Addazio said. “Somewhere along that game, credit to them. We had momentum, we lost momentum. We lost momentum before the half. We had an opportunity to recapture it in the second half but we were too herky-jerky. We had too many penalties and too many turnovers. Very uncharacteristic of our football team. That’s what happened. Five penalties and four turnovers, which didn’t allow us to get into any rhythm.”

With a game-time temperature of 51 degrees and winds up to 10 MPH that made it feel like 40, the Eagles got off to a good start when their goal line defense came up big on Louisville‘s first three chances inside the BC 10.

Murphy’s first snap of the day resulted in a poor pass and an interception by Holliman, his 11th of the season for Louisville, a new school record. The Cards marched down to the BC 1 but a false start pushed them back to the 6. Louisville settle for a 23-yard field goal from John Wallace.
