Clemson took the opening and moved down the field despite two fumbles by Tajh Boyd that he recovered both times. The drive stalled out and Chandler Cantanzaro came on for a 25 yard field goal attempt. He was wide right for his first miss of the season in 5 attempts. It was also his first miss inside 48 yards in 29 attempts and broke a streak of 10 straight made field goals.
That was a close as either side came to scoring in the first quarter as Clemson’s streak of scoring in 21 straight quarters dating back to the Chick-Fil-A comes to an end.
Boston College outgained Clemson in the quarter 87 yards to 74.
