SPORT UPDATES

Cross Country (@ClemsonTrackXC)The Tigers competed at the Panorama Farms Invitational, hosted by the University of Virginia, over the weekend. The women’s team finished eighth overall, led by Evie Tate in 31st place. The men’s team, who was without its top performer Aaron Ramirez, placed 12th. Both teams are back in action Saturday at the Greater Louisville Classic in Kentucky.

Football (@ClemsonFB)Record: 2-2, 1-1 ACC

True freshman Deshaun Watson established numerous records in leading Clemson to a 50-35 win over North Carolina last Saturday. Watson, who enrolled at Clemson in January, completed 27-of-36 passes for 435 yards and six touchdowns. The six touchdown passes set a Clemson record, tied an ACC mark and were the most ever by an ACC quarterback in his first start. His passing yardage figure was the second most by an ACC quarterback in his first start and the most by a Clemson quarterback in any game in Memorial Stadium.Vic Beasley led the defense with a pair of sacks and now has 27 for his career, third in Clemson history, and needs just two sacks to become Clemson’s career leader.  The Tigers face NC State on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in a game that will be televised by ESPNU.

The Clemson men’s soccer team defeated Wake Forest by a score of 3-1 on Friday night at Historic Riggs Field in a game for which many members of the Tigers’ 1984 National Championship team returned to Tigertown to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the school’s first soccer national title. The Tigers fought back from an early 1-0 deficit to score three unanswered goals (by Thales Moreno, Kyle Fisher and T.J. Casner). Fisher’s goal, a header from inside the box off of a free kick by senior Paul Clowes, proved to be the gamewinner. The team travels to Chapel Hill, N.C. this week to face North Carolina, ranked 8th nationally in last week’s NSCAA poll, Friday at 7 p.m.
