Clemson gets on the board first with a 24 yard field goal by Chandler Cantanzaro on the Tigers’ second possession. Clemson forced a State punt from the end zone. DeAndre Hopkins nearly fumbled the ball away but after a review, the call that he never touched the ball stood. The Tigers started from the State 38 and reached the 5. On third down, Tajh Boyd was stopped for a two yard loss on the option keeper, and that set up the field goal.
Neither team threatened to to score the rest of the quarter.
End of quarter…Clemson 3-NC State 0
