Clemson finally was able to get a Paul Johnson sized monkey off of its back last week, and was facing a Boston College team that had yet to win a conference game this season and hadn’t won a game since September 11th.
Is anyone surprised that Boston College won? Final score: Boston College 16, Clemson 10.
This is Clemson's third conference loss, and is a killer for the Tigers. They are now two games behind three other teams, all but eliminating Clemson from the ACC race.
All 26 points were scored in the first half, and Clemson had leads of 7-0 and 10-3, but were not able to extend the lead. The Boston College defense held Clemson without an offensive touchdown, with the Tigers’ one end zone trip coming on an interception return.
Kyle Parker finished 21 of 39 for 176 yards, but threw two interceptions. As for Boston College’s Chase Rettig, he only completed 9 passes but threw for 136 yards and had 1 touchdown and 1 interception.
On the ground, Andre Ellington was limited to 44 yards and the Tigers combined only had 88. Boston College had more success, with Montel Harris gaining 144 yards by himself and the team had 169.
