Boyd accounts for 8 TDs in 62-48 win for Clemson
CLEMSON 62, NC STATE 48

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and ran
for three more scores to lead No. 11 Clemson to a
record-shattering 62-48 win over North Carolina State on
Saturday.



The Tigers (10-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast) gained 754 yards, two off
the school record. The teams combined for 1,351 yards and the
110 combined points were just seven off the ACC record set by
Georgia Tech and North Carolina last week.



The Wolfpack (6-5, 3-4) led 24-13 early in the second quarter
before Clemson scored 42 straight points. Boyd was responsible
for every Clemson touchdown. The junior was 30-for-44 for 426
yards and ran for 105 yards - the combined 531 yards set another
school record.



The Tigers won a share of the ACC's Atlantic Division title, but
their loss to Florida State will keep them out of the title game



Clemson won its 10th regular season game for the first time
since it won its only national title in 1981.



Boyd threw for TDs of 69, 62, 40, 27 and 7 yards and ran for a
4-yard score and two 9-yard touchdowns. The eight touchdowns set
both school and ACC records. He also broke his own ACC record,
scoring 41 TDs this season.



Clemson ran 102 plays, the most in school history. The teams
combined of 1,351 yards of offense.



N.C. State's Tobias Palmer also set an ACC record with 496
all-purpose yards. He had 277 yards on kickoff returns and
caught seven passes for 219 yards and three touchdowns. Mike
Glennon was 29-of-53 for 493 yards and five touchdowns. Four of
N.C. State's touchdown drives took just one play.



But with all the offense, the Tigers may have won the game
thanks to its defense making plays at critical moments. They
stopped the Wolfpack on fourth down twice deep in Clemson
territory. They picked off Glennon in the end zone and forced a
fumble that gave the Tigers one more scoring drive in the first
half.



Meanwhile, Clemson's offense keeps clicking. Since the 49-37
loss to Florida State, the Tigers are averaging almost 48 points
a game. In its 11th game, Clemson has scored a record 491
points. Last year's team set the mark at 470 in 14 games.



Next up for the Tigers is their traditional finale against South
Carolina.



Andre Ellington ran for 124 yards on 22 carries. Sammy Watkins
caught 11 passes for 110 yards and a touchdown, all in the first
half, while Brandon Ford had five receptions for 101 yards and
two TDs for Clemson.



Marion Carter caught seven passes for 105 yards and a score,
while Shadrach Thornton ran 21 times for 114 yards and a
touchdown for the Wolfpack.



The first half seemed like a whole game, with two huge momentum
swings, 65 total points and 805 total yards.



Clemson took a 13-0 lead scoring on its first three possessions,
but Glennon threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to Tobias Palmer,
then followed it with a 49-yard scoring pass to Palmer on the
next offensive play. The Wolfpack scored on their next two
drives and led 24-13 early in the second quarter.



The Tigers' defense stiffened up a bit, stopping North Carolina
State on a fourth-and-1 and picking off Glennon in the end zone.
The Clemson offense kept clicking, with Boyd throwing for three
touchdowns and running for a fourth to give the Tigers a 41-24
halftime lead.



And just in case Clemson fans didn't know their archrival South
Carolina is up next, the Tigers mascot was show on the big
screen with 32 seconds left, swinging a Gamecock around on a
noose.
