Tigers can't let Boston College hang around

Tigers can't let Boston College hang around

A defensive slugfest ultimately panned out as the lopsided loss it was expected to be as Clemson rattled off 27 points in the fourth quarter against a drained BC defense and ran away with a 34-7 win. "That's what you can do when you've got depth and can wear people down".

That depth included Etienne, who had 98 yards, including an 81-yard touchdown run, in Clemson's victory at Louisville last week. Etienne added 113 yards on nine carries and scored on runs of 50 and 10 yards. He was presented with the O'Rourke-McFadden Leather Helmet Award as the game's most valuable player. "He's just gaining confidence by the minute", Swinney said.

The Eagles answered late in the third quarter on an AJ Dillon 1-yard run before Clemson grabbed control.

Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant is getting more experience, but it's probably not wise to have him try to win a game single-handedly this early in the season.

Boston College falls to 1-3 (0-2 ACC) and hosts Central Michigan next week. That's the storyline of the game. "I'm proud of our guys for battling and finding a way to win". Clemson had averaged almost 44 points in its seven home contests a year ago, but has managed just seven touchdowns combined in its past two games at Death Valley. Bryant ran 22 times for 106 yards.

Clemson sophomore Tavien Feaster, making the first start of his career, had 73 yards on 20 carries, to contribute to the Tigers' 342-yard rushing day.

And the Eagles were double trouble for a Clemson offense that came up flat. Clemson's fans, sounding like spoiled children just one month into the Tigers' defense of their national championship, pulled away with four fourth-quarter touchdowns.

Ryan Finley threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns as North Carolina State got its first road win over a ranked team since 2008, defeating No. 12 Florida State 27-21 on Saturday.

"They dug in and their punter was awesome", Swinney said.

"To take down the No. 2 team in the country, you've got to take advantage of those opportunities", said Landry.

"We wanted to drag this team into the fourth quarter, and we drug them into the fourth quarter", Addazio said. "That's what we want to see".

Clemson's inconsistency continued. The Tigers went punt, downs, interception and two punts before taking a 14-7 lead on their 11th possession.

The Tigers scored first on a 94-yard, 13-play drive in the second quarter that was extended 12 yards on an advanced fumble by guard Taylor Hearn.

Bryant added a 4-yard scoring run in the fourth quarter while running back Adam Choice had a 6-yard touchdown run.

Bryant rushed for 40 yards on the drive and completed both his passing attempts.

"To hold them to less than 100 yards rushing, hat's off to our defense".

"We'll keep moving forward - we've got another big one next week and we'll recharge tomorrow and get ready for next week", Swinney said.
