Top-ranked Clemson tacked on another score thanks to an 8-yard touchdown pass from D.J. Uiagalelei to Amari Rodgers that cut the Tigers deficit to a 2-point game with 6:16 left in the third quarter. But the failed two-point conversion kept the Tigers down 28-26. The drive covered 64 yards for 7 plays in 2:59 minutes.
After a clutch 42-yard pass to Etienne on 2nd- and-8 to the BC 20 and a run up the middle for 1st and goal from Uiagalelei, the Tigers answered Boston College early in the second, making two touchdowns in the third quarter thus far, bringing the score to 28-26.
