USC forced a Clemson punt to start the second half and got a big play early as Connor Shaw hit Rory Anderson with a 55 yard pass that carried to the Tiger 5. Three plays later, Shaw and Anderson hooked up again for a three yard scoring pass. With 9:52 left in the quarter, USC leads 24-10.
That would be it for the scoring in the quarter. But as the quarter ended, Clemson was deep in USC territory after taking a punt at the Gamecock 36. They started the fourth quarter at the USC 15.
End of quarter…USC 24-Clemson 10
