Here are the fourth quarter highlights from the Orange Bowl:
- West Virginia failed to convert a third down play to start the fourth quarter and punted away to Clemson. The Tigers moved across the 50 into Mountaineers territory before Tajh Boyd tossed his second interception of the game. It was Boyd’s third turnover counting the first half fumble.
- Following the Boyd miscue West Virginia put together another scoring drive, this one covering 66 yards in 12 plays. The drive took 6:14 off the clock and put West Virginia up 70-26 with 6:21. Geno Smith capped the drive with his sixth touchdown pass of the game.
- Clemson was unable to muster a scoring drive on its next possession and ended up punting. West Virginia re-inserted backup quarterback Paul Millard in the game and punted it back to Clemson after picking up one first down.
- Clemson took over with less than three minutes left in the game and put Cole Stoudt in at quarterback. Roderick McDowell entered at running back and he scored a four yard touchdown to make the score 70-33 West Virginia with 1:01 left in the game.
- West Virginia ran out the clock from there.
- The 70 points by West Virginia is the most scored in any bowl game, BCS or non, in history.
FINAL SCORE: West Virginia 70, Clemson 33
