CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) C.J. Spiller rushed for 114 yards and had a touchdown, but No. 15 TCU showed off its stellar defense and bolstered its BCS buster credentials with a 14-10 victory at Clemson on Saturday.

Andy Dalton threw two touchdown passes and the Horned Frogs (3-0) held Clemson to 125 yards in the second half to take control.

TCU trailed 10-7 entering the fourth quarter as it had its own problems against a Tiger defense which held Boston College to 54 yards a week earlier.

That’s when Dalton ended a 56-yard drive with a 25-yard TD pass to Antoine Hicks to move in front with 12:46 left.

The Tigers (2-2) twice advanced inside TCU’s 20 down the stretch but could not score.
