Boston College took Clemson into the fourth quarter tied 7-7 before the wheels fell off as the No. 2 ranked Tigers scored 27 points in a row for a convincing 34-7 win in Death Valley on Saturday.

Head coach Steve Addazio had the following proud comments about his team's performance against the defending National Champions.

“We took this team, that’s the No. 2 team in the country, late into the fourth quarter. Our kids played their tails off. That’s the storyline of the game. I thought we went after them with everything we had. I thought we made plays on offense, we made plays on defense, and I’m proud of the way our kids fought and battled against this team. This team that’s one of the best, if not the best, team and one of the best, if not the best, defenses in the country...and we had them nose-to-nose. Those are the facts.

What I want you to hear from me is the truth, which is that we battled hard and played tough. We wanted to drag this team into the fourth quarter, and we drug them into the fourth quarter. We played with great heart and you can see the potential in this football team right now. The key right now, though, is having enough guys to come out of this thing and let that work for us. We’re hoping we’re not going to be so crippled that we’re going to have a hard time with that.”

Addazio said that his team suffered several significant injuries during the physical contest.

“We’re very concerned right now with the amount of injuries we have and what we just took in this game. I don’t know the extent of them yet, but we’re just losing an incredible amount of starters right now. That’s a big concern that I have, and I just have to get my arms around where we are. It seems like every week, we have to restart something. I just have to figure out the extent of these things and where we are right now.”

Clemson has dominated Boston College with seven straight wins in the series.
