CLEMSON, S.C. (WIS) - Top-ranked Clemson will host Boston College at noon at Memorial Stadium

The Tigers have won nine straight against the Eagles and are looking to continue their winning ways.

We’ll have game notes and scoring updates here.


FIRST QUARTER

Boston College has been aggressive from the second their offense touched the field. Jurkovec has been given the Eagles a huge lift against a Tigers' defense that is missing James Skalski, Tyler Davis, and Mike Jones, Jr.

With that, the Eagles have scored 14 points. it’s been an eye-opener to say the least.

The Eagles outgained Clemson 140-123 at the end of the opening quarter.

SECOND QUARTER

Boston College capitalizes on a critical miscue at the goal line. Etienne fumbles and the Eagles cash in on a 97-yard return. It’s definitely an odd sight to see Etienne give it away like that.

The Tigers trailed 28-13 at the half. It’s the first time since 2013 they’ve trailed by 15 or more points at the break.

However, Clemson will get the ball back to start the second half.

THIRD QUARTER

The Tigers get just what they needed to open the second half. On fourth down, Uiagalelei scores on a 30-yard option run.

On their next drive, DJ finds Amari Rodgers for another Clemson touchdown.

The Tigers go from being down 18 making it a 2-point game.

Slowly but surely, Clemson is picking up momentum.
