I am not sure what happened but I suspect that when they opened the new rewards card, it closed your old BOA credit card. The old card had your good credit history on it and the new credit card has no credit history to report yet. This probably decreased your Age of Credit History, which brought your score down. Now you will need to create a new good credit history on your new card to increase your credit score.
