LAist-CS Week 7 Rankings: Clemson Keeps Winning
It seems like I’ve been talking about Clemson a lot this season. But how can I not talk about them after games like this?
Down by 18 points twice in the game, quarterback Tajh Boyd made three touchdown passes in the second half, two to Sammy Watkins who added an 89-yard kickoff return in the fourth quarter to give Clemson the 49-45 lead.
