WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Running back Wayne Gallman set the stage for No. 4 Clemson with his 42-yard touchdown on the Tigers’ opening possession as they rolled to a 35-13 victory over Wake Forest at BB&T Field on Saturday night in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Gallman later scored a second touchdown on a one-yard run in the fourth quarter, and finished the game with 161 yards on 22 carries as he paced the Tigers for 254 yards overall.

Gallman averaged 7.3 yards per carry.

The 161 yards marked the 16th time the junior rushed for 100 or more yards in a game, setting a new mark at Clemson. The old mark was 15 held by former Clemson great Raymond Priester from 1994-’97.

This was the fourth time this season Gallman rushed for 100 yards in a game. He had 123 at Auburn, 110 vs. Louisville and 109 at Boston College.

Gallman now has 831 yards on 160 carries this season. He has scored a team-high 13 touchdowns, all on the ground. He is averaging 5.2 yards per carry.

Clemson will host South Carolina next week in Death Valley.
