From PhilSteele.com:


LY CU led 10-3 into the 2Q gaining only 193 yds thereafter but only 1 of their L/8 poss ended in a punt (3 TO, 2 missed FG, SOD and end of gm). LTH here (‘09) Clemson and the gm took nearly 5 hours due to lightning delays and BC’s only TD was set up by a TO. BC had MINUS 5 yds at the half! BC is off a loss to Wake LW 27-19. RB Montel Harris (BC car rush leader) made his 1st start (inj’d) rushing for 108 yds (4.9) but behind QB Rettig (210 ypg, 52%, 5-4) and a patchwork OL the offense has struggled to score. CU HC Swinney said it best when he said, “we played just enough offense and a lot of defense” (easily vs VT’s young QB) as the Tigers downed VT 23-3 LW. The D held VT without a TD at home for the 1st time S/’95. CU became the 1st ACC school to defeat 3 consec ranked opponents in Aub, FSU and VT. Coming into LW CU was avg 38 ppg and 506 ypg. Clemson has all the edges here (off #18-90, def #34-49 and ST #29-88). Clemson is a hot team as they return to Death Valley and take care of the Eagles.
