Draft Scout Tyler Murphy News
10/28/14 - Jon Hilliman rushed for 101 yards and two touchdowns, and Boston College held on to beat Wake Forest 23-17 on Saturday. Tyler Murphy finished 11 of 15 for 165 yards with a 37-yard touchdown pass to Shakim Phillips while Hilliman had touchdown runs of 1 and 33 yards for the Eagles (5-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast Conference). They nearly blew a 23-3 lead in the fourth quarter and didn't completely put the pesky Demon Deacons away until Justin Simmons' late interception. John Wolford was 22 of 30 for 242 yards for Wake Forest (2-6, 0-3), and receiver E.J. Scott and Isaiah Robinson had short touchdown runs about 1½ minutes apart in the fourth before the Demon Deacons got the ball back with 2½ minutes left in a one-possession game. Simmons sealed it by picking off Wolford's sideline pass with 2:06 left. A Wake Forest offense that in the first half didn't advance further than its own 37 and managed just 6 total yards sure made things interesting in the second. - AP Sports
10/22/14 - Boston College was one dropped pass away from another upset victory. C.J. Davidson ran 32 yards for touchdown with 9:35 left and No. 24 Clemson stopped Boston College in the final minutes to beat the Eagles 17-13 on Saturday. The Eagles marched to the Clemson 26 and quarterback Tyler Murphy found reserve running back Tyler Rouse wide-open and streaking for the end zone with just over a minute to play, but he couldn't hold onto the ball near the 4. Three plays later, Murphy fired a pass over the middle that missed diving receiver Shakim Phillips near the goal line on fourth-and-15, ending the Eagles' hopes for their second big home win this season. BC beat then-No. 9 Southern California 37-31 last month.
Murphy, who averaged 118 yards rushing per game, ran for 55 yards on 13 carries and also completed 8 of 19 passes for 108 yards. The Tigers did a good job of containing him for most of the game until he broke free for a 43-yard scamper, moving the ball to Clemson's 38 with 3 minutes to play. The Eagles then converted a fourth-and-1 before Rouse bobbled the ball while he was a couple of yards ahead defensive back T.J. Green. "We had some plays we could have made," Murphy said. "We have to find ways to get better and make those plays." Clemson took over on downs and ran out the clock. "That quarterback, we had him hemmed up a couple times and he just slipped out," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. "He's done that against everybody." - AP Sports
10/12/14 - SEP 15 ACC OFFENSIVE BACK OF THE WEEK: Tyler Murphy, Boston College, Gr., QB, 6-2, 213, Wethersfield, Conn.,...Murphy led the Eagles to the upset of No. 9 Southern California with a career-high 191 yards on 13 carries, averaging 14.7 yards per carry against a Trojan defense that allowed just 128 total rushing yards to 13th-ranked Stanford in week two and only 4.0 yards per rush in its first two games. Murphy scored a rushing touchdown for the third straight game and tallied over 100 yards on the ground for the second time in 2014 and in his career. He also recorded a career-long 66-yard touchdown run, the longest of the season for the Eagles, which put BC up 37-24 with 3:30 to play. - ACC football
10/11/14 - Tyler Murphy rushed for 132 yards and two touchdowns and Boston College beat North Carolina State 30-14 on Saturday for the Wolfpack's 11th straight Atlantic Coast Conference loss. Murphy had touchdown runs of 47 and 27 yards and finished 12 of 19 passing for 101 yards for the Eagles (4-2, 1-1). They never trailed and endured a weather delay of nearly an hour to beat N.C. State for the second straight year. Jon Hilliman had a 10-yard touchdown run and receiver Sherman Alston took a reverse 24 yards for a score for Boston College. BC, which entered with the ACC's best ground game, outrushed the Wolfpack 310-43. Jacoby Brissett - Murphy's former teammate at Florida - was 14 of 30 for 174 yards with a 16-yard touchdown pass to David Grinnage. He also was intercepted once and sacked four times. N.C. State (4-3, 0-3) lost its third straight. - AP Sports
12/15/13 - Another quarterback is leaving Florida after the program's first losing season since 1979. Tyler Murphy, who started six games and may have gotten a shot at the job in 2014, announced Sunday he's leaving to play his senior year elsewhere. Murphy joins freshman Max Staver as quarterbacks who have left the program after Florida coach Will Muschamp fired offensive coordinator Brent Pease and offensive line coach Tim Davis.
The departures leave the Gators with just two scholarship quarterbacks: injured starter Jeff Driskel and freshman Skyler Mornhinweg. Highly touted recruit Will Grier is expected to enroll in January. Murphy, who graduated Saturday and can play right away at another school, completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 1,216 yards, with six touchdowns and five interceptions. He also was sacked 22 times. - AP Sports
