CLEMSON, S.C. – No. 4/2 Clemson extended the nation’s longest winning streak to 23 games at Memorial Stadium on Saturday night, defeating Boston College 59-7 on Homecoming. The win marked the eighth time Clemson (6-0 ACC) started a season 8-0.
Diondre Overton, winner of the Leather Helmet Award as the game MVP, recorded his first three touchdown receptions of the season, cutting through the Eagle defense in the first quarter for a 22-yard touchdown and then running past the Boston College defense en route to a 63-yard touchdown. His final touchdown came in the fourth quarter, as Chase Brice connected with Overton for a 34-yard score. Amari Rodgers added his third touchdown of the season on the night, as Trevor Lawrence connected with Rodgers for a 19-yard touchdown strike.
Clemson held Boston College to only 96 rushing yards. The Eagles came into the contest sixth in the nation and first in the ACC with 278.3 rushing yards per game. Logan Rudolph returned a fumble 39 yards for his first career touchdown. Chad Smith led the defense with nine tackles, a caused fumble and a sack.
The Tigers are back in action next Saturday against Wofford at 4 p.m. on ACC Network for Military Appreciation Day and Purple Out at Memorial Stadium.
