The Storylines

Clemson is looking to bounce back from last week’s 27-21 double-overtime loss to NC State last Saturday this evening against Boston College. Dabo Swinney’s Tigers are in a territory they haven’t been in a while as their record sits at 2-2.

Clemson's defense helped keep the Tigers in the game despite spending an immense amount of time on the field and despite losing starters Bryan Bresee and James Skalski to injury during the contest. NC State ran 96 plays to Clemson's 49, a 47-play difference that was Clemson's largest play deficit in records back to 1950, surpassing minus-40 play differentials against North Carolina in 1970 and against Boston College in 1983. Not including two untimed possessions in overtime, NC State held the ball for 41:48, four seconds shy of the longest time of possession by a Clemson opponent since North Texas held the ball for an opponent-record 41:52 against the Tigers in 2010.

Good evening everyone! I missed the first half but was able to catch a few updates. Clemson leads BC 13-6 as we head into the 3rd quarter.

Two huge gains to the tight end on play action has BC threatening to score. Dabo Swinney calls a timeout as we are just underway in the second half.

Touchdown BC. That was quick. 4 plays, 75 yards and 55 seconds. We are tied in Death Valley at 13.

Clemson goes 3-and-out. DJ tried to hit Beaux Collins and Joseph Ngata on quick throws and both were incomplete. Tied game at 13 with 13:13 to play in the third.

Grosel hits Dennis for a 31-yard completion and appears to have made an incredible catch. The play is under review. The ball appears to have been juggled as he was making the catch. Don't think this one will stand.

And the call was reversed. BC is forced to punt and Clemson dodges a bullet right there.

Everything is SO....SLOW to develop for this Clemson offense. It's hard to watch.
If you are Clemson graduate let me know we have "Grad Tags" for your profile.

Yup. DJU is lucky the third down throw wasn't a pick six.

The comment on the TV broadcast on the most recent 3rd down play was made that DJ looks unsure, and I will agree. The throws aren't on point here. Clemson punts and BC will take over. We are tied at 13.

RJ Mickens makes the diving interception and the Tigers get the ball right back. Let's see if the offense can get going here.

That was a sloppy drive but B.T. Potter knocks through the field goal as the Tigers retake the lead, 16-13 with 1:10 to play in the third.

END 3Q: No. 25 Clemson leads BC 16-13. Tigers will get the ball back after the sack when play resumes.

It should be time to try Taisun for a drive when we get the ball back.

That toss to a covered up running back could have been disastrous and just shows that DJ does not have his head right at the moment.

I agree. DJ has been missing easy throws like the dump off pass when they got the field goal.

BC had a decent drive going but a fumbled snap on 3rd down hurt them. They are forced to punt. If Clemson can get a score here, they can put this one on ice. 16-13 Tigers with 7:12 left in the game.

Joseph Ngata with a huge reception and a drop during the drive, but B.T. Potter comes up with another field goal to extend Clemson's lead to 6 points. Tigers lead 19-13 with 4:51 left to play in the game.

Zay Flowers is just a foot or two shy of the first down. Tigers take over with 2:14 left and BC has 3 timeouts. Let's see if Clemson can close this one out up 19-13.

DJU takes a sack on where they were trying to hit the tight end and he wasn't there. Good decision to just take the sack. BC will have an opportunity to take the lead with 1:48 to play in the game, trailing 19-13.

Wow! Groscel wasn't ready for the snap and the snap is fumbled and KJ Henry recovers. Clemson will survive.

This Clemson D has to have more heart than any other defensive squad we have had in recent memory.

They are carrying on their backs the most impotent offense we have had in recent memory and still don't give up.

I agree, Brady. They continue to answer the bell when they need to.
