Just as they did last week at Georgia, the Tigers took the opening kickoff and moved right down the field for a touchdown. The Tigers went 67 yards in 7 plays which included a 34 yard pass from Cole Stoudt to Mike Williams to the State 4. Two plays later Adam Humphries took a pitch from Stoudt around the right side for a 2 yard touchdown run. Clemson leads 7-0.
The Tigers forced a three out by State and started their next drive at the Bulldogs’ 44. They reached the 5 where on third down Adam Choice was stopped on a run up the middle. Ammon Lakip came on and kicked a 22 yard field goal for a 10-0 lead.
Clemson was on the move as the quarter ended and was on the State 7 yard line as time expired. State had -20 yards of offense in the quarter.
End of quarter…Clemson 10-SC State 0
