The Storylines

Clemson is riding a high after last week’s 30-20 win over NC State in Death Valley on Saturday night. The last two meetings between these two teams have been decided by one possession.

In 2020, the altered schedule amid the COVID-19 pandemic turned a planned Boston College home game into a Clemson home game in what turned out to be current Clemson quarterback DJ Uiagalelei's first career start.

Clemson's most recent visit to Boston was in 2018 when true freshman Trevor Lawrence led the Tigers to a 27-7 win that clinched a division title for Clemson in front of a prime-time national audience on ABC.

Excellent PBU from Nate Wiggins on 3rd down and it looks like BC is going to go for it on 4th and 2. They're going to call a timeout to talk about.

HALF: Clemson 10, Boston College 3

The first half was the fewest in any half this season and Dabo Swinney just noted on the TV broadcast that the Tigers were outplayed in the first half, and that's very clear. We'll see if they can come out and play cleaner in the 2nd half.

DJU fires it downfield to Joseph Ngata to a 38-yard TD reception for the first of two explosive plays. He hit Beaux Collins on the play before.

That's a 5 play drive to quickly increase the Tigers' lead to 17-3 with 11:50 to play in the third. That's the energy that was missing with this offense in the first half.
