[November 10, 2008]  BOSTON (AP) -- Paul Anderson intercepted Jimmy Clausen twice, running one back 76 yards for a touchdown on Saturday night, as Boston College beat Notre Dame 17-0 and extended its winning streak against the Fighting Irish to six in a row.

RestaurantWith the victory, BC (6-3) pulled even in the all-time series between the nation's only Catholic schools playing top-tier football -- a tally that was unthinkable only a decade ago, when Notre Dame had won eight of 10 matchups and had 11 consensus national championships to one for Boston College.

Clausen threw four interceptions for the Irish (5-4), who also had a fumble and a blocked punt.

BC avoided a three-game losing streak and qualified for a bowl game for the 10th year in a row.
