The Tigers responded to a pair of lengthy touchdown runs by Dalvin Cook in the third quarter with a touchdown of their own to start the fourth. Wayne Gallman scored the touchdown on a 2-yard run with 11:30 to play, cutting Clemson’s deficit to 28-26. Gallman was initially ruled short of the end zone, but the ruling was overturned upon official review. Clemson’s two-point conversion attempt was unsuccessful.
It was a 10-play, 75-yard drive for Clemson that lasted 4:13. Clemson was 3-for-11 on third down entering the drive, but the Tigers converted three third downs to help set up the score.
