No. 2 Clemson pounds Florida St. 45-14 for 21st straight win

  No. 2 Clemson pounds Florida St. 45-14 for 21st straight win No. 2 Clemson answered any lingering questions from its close call at North Carolina, winning its 21st straight game by pounding Florida State 45-14 on Saturday. The Tigers and coach Dabo Swinney faced two weeks of questions about why the defending national champions needed a last-minute stop on a 2-point conversion to escape the Tar Heels with a 21-20 win. Everything from Lawrence's health to Travis Etienne's fumble-itis (he had a key one to keep North Carolina in the game) came under scrutiny as many wondered: What's wrong with the Tigers?Apparently, nothing.BOX SCORE: NO.

Get a summary of the Boston College Eagles vs. Clemson Tigers football game. Travis Etienne ran for 109 yards and three touchdowns, reserve receiver Diondre Overton caught three scoring passes and No . 4 Clemson blasted Boston College 59 - 7 on Saturday night for its 23rd straight victory.

CLEMSON – OK, so maybe Clemson does care about style points after all.

The Tigers, who have dropped in the polls despite remaining undefeated, played like a team on a mission to prove itself Saturday night en route to a 59-7 victory against Boston College at Memorial Stadium.

BOX SCORE: NO. 4 CLEMSON 59, BOSTON COLLEGE 7

Clemson scored points in bunches – early and often – and exhibited a bit of glitz along the way, which perhaps might be what’s required to leave an impression on the pollsters.

  Misery Index: Wisconsin won't be able to erase ugly mark on its resume after loss to Illinois This week for Wisconsin was supposed to be about the buildup for the program against Ohio State. Instead, it is reeling from an ugly loss to Illinois.No matter how much you maximize what Wisconsin can be as a program, the Badgers are not going to win a college football national championship. Not now, and probably not ever. The recruiting landscape just doesn’t make it possible for Wisconsin in this day and age, and that’s completely fine.

Lawrence also rushed eight times for 42 yards in his most complete game of the season.

Overton, meanwhile, also caught a 23-yard touchdown pass from back-up quarterback Chase Brice, giving him three receptions for a career-high 119 yards.

While Lawrence was the ringleader, Travis Etienne earned a big assist. The junior running back rushed for 109 yards and three touchdowns on 16 attempts, notching his fourth 100-yard game of the season and the 13th of his career.

The Tigers finished with 674 yards, a season high, and their third game with at least 600 yards this season.

Clemson’s defense was dominant once again, limiting Boston College to 177 total yards. An Eagles rushing attack that posted 429 yards in a win against N.C. State last week managed only 97 yards on 44 rushes – an average of 2.2 yards per play – and ACC rushing leader A.J. Dillon had 76 yards on 19 carries.

BC quarterback Dennis Grosel was on the run all night and completed just 3 of 14 passes for 53 yards.

The Eagles (4-4, 2-3) 177 yards yards against Clemson’s defense marked the eighth time in eight games this season that the Tigers have held their opponent to 300 yards or less.

Clemson had eight tackles for loss, including two sacks, and defensive end Logan Rudolph scored his first career touchdown by scooping up a fumble caused by linebacker Chad Smith and rambling 39 yards for a score early in the third quarter.

Linebacker Isaiah Simmons was his typical self, with four tackles, including 1½ for loss, while also breaking up a pass and recording two quarterback hurries. He also provided plenty of animation, sinking a fake punt after one of his tackles for loss and later snapping the ball between his legs to an official.

Style points?

Who knows, but the Tigers’ most well-rounded performance of the season may have them on an upward trajectory once again.
