Clemson Football: Tigers Take Care of Business Against Virginia Cavaliers





Clemson was simply looking to take of the football as they prepared to take care of business against the Virginia Cavaliers in Charlottesville, Virginia. While Boyd did end the game with another interception, the Tigers’ offense found its grove behind a 96-yard touchdown reception by Sammy Watkins as the Tigers cruised to a -10 victory over the Cavaliers.

Boyd completed 24 of his 29 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns and an interception while also adding a rushing touchdown to help the Tigers gain over 610 yards of total offense. Rod McDowell led the way on the ground again with 70 rushing yards and a touchdown, and also recorded a receiving touchdown off of a screen pass in the red zone. Backup quarterback Chad Kelly got his time to shine in the fourth quarter by adding a 39 yard rushing touchdown and finished as the Tigers’ second leading rusher of the day with 56 yards. Of course, Watkins was the star of Clemson’s receiving corps, hauling in eight receptions for 169 yards and two touchdowns, both of which were beautiful long yard bombs of 33 and 96 yards.

Overall, the Tigers did a lot better job of taking care of the football and of not shooting themselves in the foot, while the defense held the Cavs to just 277 total yards and forced three turnovers of their own. Freshman safety Jayron Kearse was responsible for two of them, recording an interception and forcing a fumble, while fellow defensive back Korrin Wiggins also recorded an interception in the fourth quarter to set up another Clemson score.

The Tigers now move to 8-1 on the season and keep their BCS Bowl hopes alive, and will go into their second bye week of the season to clean some of their various bumps and bruises before returning to Death Valley to face off against the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets‘ option offense.
