Less than three minutes after regaining the lead against Louisville, Clemson extended its advantage to 16-7 courtesy of a 79-yard touchdown pass from Kelly Bryant to Ray-Ray McCloud with 4:06 remaining before halftime.
It was a quick-strike drive as Clemson needed just four plays to go 90 yards in 1:25. The touchdown marked the second of the game for Bryant, who scored the Tigers’ first touchdown on an 8-yard run on their opening possession of the game.
Greg Huegel concluded Clemson’s previous series with a 31-yard field goal that gave the Tigers a 10-7 lead at the 6:57 mark of the second quarter. His extra-point attempt after the Bryant-McCloud touchdown connection was blocked.
