CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Jamie Harper each scored twice for Clemson in a 35-10 victory over North Texas on Saturday that showed there’s life for the Tigers without ACC player of the year C.J. Spiller.

Ellington got things going with a 60-yard scoring run on Clemson’s second snap just 16 seconds into the game. He added a 14-yard run in the third quarter.

Harper caught an 8-yard touchdown pass seconds before halftime. He ended the scoring for the Tigers with a 3-yard run.

Ellington ended with 122 yards and Harper 102, the first time Clemson’s had two rushers top the century mark since its “Thunder and Lightning” combo of James Davis and Spiller accomplished it against Maryland in 2007.
