Clemson continued to pile things up on the scoreboard in the third quarter. This time it was former walk-on CJ Thompson doing the honors with a one yard touchdown run, his first career touchdown. That capped a 10 play, 46 yard drive and put the Tigers up 42-7.
Tajh Boyd’s day is down after that drive. He finished with 311 passing yards and 3 touchdowns and 69 rushing yards and one score. His 380 total yards gives him 1255 total yards for his career against Wake Forest, a Clemson record for total yards against one team.
Cole Stoudt comes in to direct the offense and on his first series he moves the Tigers to another touchdown. Stoudt hit freshman tight end Jordan Leggett with a 18 yard touchdown pass for a 49-7 lead.
Clemson finished the third quarter with 504 yards.
