And Wake Forest just scored with a 28-yard TD reception to Donovan Greene on a deep ball. Greene beat Jaedyn Lukus, the freshman from Mauldin.

Demon Deacons lead 21-20 in the third.

Clemson's secondary is in trouble if the offense doesn't get going again.

Hartman is feeling good and the CBs are shaky with several key players out.

This is a huge series in this game. Wake Forest leads 21-20 with 10:39 to play in the third. Clemson just went 3-and-out and I think the Deacs have found a rhythm against Clemson's secondary.

Sam Hartman connects with Blake Whiteheart for a 19-yard TD reception. Yes, Clemson's secondary is struggling but where is the pressure up front from the defensive line? They aren't getting there right now.

7:47 to play in the third, 28-20 Wake Forest leads

DJU connects with a tight end again, this time it's Davis Allen. That was a high throw on the 5-yd reception where he could only catch it. They are going for two. Good response from Clemson.

DJU somehow gets out of pressure and convert the 2-point conversion to Beaux Collins.

We are tied at 28 in Winston Salem.

Donovan Greene catches his second TD of the afternoon. It is a 25-yard reception as Wake Forest retakes the lead at 35-28 in the third. Back and forth we go.

END 3Q: Wake Forest 35, Clemson 28

The quarter ends with a DJU bomb to Joseph Ngata down the left sideline into Wake territory. Get ready for an action packed fourth quarter. Can Clemson punch it in and get some stops defensively? We're about to find out.

Timeout on the field as Clemson is trying to tie the game, trailing 35-28. At some point on these read option plays, DJU is going to keep it and it's going to be a huge gain.

What an effort from Will Shipley to score on the 1-yard run. The play is under review.

TD is confirmed. We are tied again at 35 with 11:16 to play in the contest.

Matthew Dennis boots the 29 yard field goal through to give Wake Forest the lead back at 38-35 with 8:07 to play in the game. Another big completion on the drive from Hartman to Jahmal Banks.

Your best defense is your offense if you're Clemson right now. You need a four to five minute drive and punch it in to take the lead.

B.T. Potter drills the 52-yd FG and we are tied at 38 with 4:01 left. Buckle up for an exciting finish.

A.T. Perry is wide open for the score. An 8-yard TD as Wake takes a 45-38 lead. Clemson needs a TD and extra point to stay in the game.

Beautiful throw from DJU to Beaux Collins. XP is good and we head to a 2nd overtime. Tied at 45.

The tight ends have made play after play today. Davis Allen catches the 21-yd reception for the score. Two point conversion is no good. Tigers will need a stop. They lead 51-45.

Nate Wiggins knocks away the throw on the TD and Clemson wins in a thriller, 51-45 in double OT. What a crazy ball game. Wow.

And all around the land a hush fell upon all the DJU haters.

What a turn around from last year when our D bailed us out all season. Today it was DJ's turn to repay the favor.

As much criticism as DJU has taken, he finished 26-41 for 371 yards and 5 touchdowns today. No interceptions. He balled out today as Clemson's offense had 559 yards of total offense.

The bad news is Clemson's secondary is in desperate need of fixing and they'll get the help when they can get starters back for next Saturday's contest at home against NC State.
