Clemson, SC (SportsNetwork.com) - Tajh Boyd threw for 331 yards and a
touchdown while rushing for another, as No. 3 Clemson rebounded from a slow
start to overcome Boston College, 24-14, at Memorial Stadium.
Boyd completed 30 of his 45 attempts and also rushed for 28 yards, but fumbled
twice for the Tigers (6-0, 4-0 ACC), who played an uneven game through nearly
three quarters in anticipation of next week's clash with Florida State.
Nonetheless, the hosts finally assumed control with a pair of quick scores
early in the fourth and went on record their 14th win in 15 games dating back
to September of last season.
Sammy Watkins recorded a 49-yard TD among his 102 yards on seven catches, with
David Beasley adding a 12-yard fumble return for another score.
Chase Rettig finished 13-of-21 for 193 yards, one touchdown and an
interception for the Eagles (3-3, 1-2), who put up a valiant fight and held a
four-point edge heading into the final period.
Alex Amidon ended up with 122 yards -- including a 69-yard score -- on six
receptions, while Andre Williams gained 69 yards on 24 carries and Myles
Willis posted a rushing score in defeat.
