The kicker earlier was suspended for Virginia Tech's Sept. 21 game against Marshall for an unspecified violation of team rules. Journell pleaded guilty in May 2012 to misdemeanor trespassing. He was suspended from the team for seven months and missed Virginia Tech's 2012 Sugar Bowl appearance.
Virginia Tech's Logan Thomas completed 24 of 41 passes for 391 yards and two TDs, but was picked off twice and fumbled twice, leading to 17 of Boston College's points.
The Blue Devils (6-2, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference) beat a ranked team for the first time since they stopped No. 13 Virginia in 1994, and beat one on the road for the first time since Stanford in 1971.
Logan Thomas threw an early touchdown pass, Cody Journell kicked four field goals and Virginia Tech sacked Pittsburgh's Tom Savage eight times in a 19-9 victory on Saturday, sending the Hokies into their off week on a six-game winning streak.
Logan Thomas ran 2 yards for a touchdown and then ran for the 2-point conversion in the third overtime Saturday, as Virginia Tech overcame a sloppy performance and beat Marshall 29-21.
The Tide had just 97 yards total offense at halftime but were up 28-10. AJ McCarron & Co. contributed only one of those TDs, and that came when they worked with a short field after a wobbly Virginia Tech punt.
Cody Journell kicked a 29-yard field goal with 4 seconds to play, and Virginia Tech beat Virginia 17-14 Saturday to qualify for a bowl game and win its ninth straight from its in-state rival.
Logan Thomas threw for two touchdowns — the second a 7-yarder to Randall Dunn in overtime — and ran for another score to help Virginia Tech keep its bowl hopes alive with a 30-23 comeback win over Boston College on Saturday.
E.J. Manuel hit Rashad Greene with a slant pass that Greene took 39 yards for a touchdown with 40 seconds to play and No. 8 Florida State survived a scare to beat Virginia Tech 28-22 on Thursday night.
There's nothing like hurrying up to get Virginia Tech's offense going.
Jeff Williams wasn't turning off the TV. The Giles High School football coach and 1989 Virginia Tech graduate wanted to see the end of Virginia Tech's Monday night game against Georgia Tech. He wanted to see his alma mater pull out a key victory.

The lawyer for Cody Journell says the Virginia Tech kicker has reached an agreement with prosecutors to plead guilty to a reduced charge stemming from a December incident.
Virginia Tech kicker Cody Journell has been suspended indefinitely after being charged with breaking and entering.
"Anytime you get a chance to tie a game up with 7 seconds left and then kick a field goal in overtime, it's always special," said Journell, who declined to discuss his suspension.
After missing his earlier attempt, Journell said he had to refocus before the final two kicks.
