CLEMSON, S.C. – Travis Zachery ran for four touchdowns and Brandon Streeter threw for two as Clemson, with its biggest output since 1990, routed Duke 58-7 on Saturday.
It was the most points for Clemson since a 59-0 victory over Long Beach State in 1990 and the most against an Atlantic Coast Conference opponent since an 82-24 victory over Wake Forest in 1981, the year Clemson won its only national championship.
The Tigers (5-4, 5-2 ACC) took control early and didn’t let up, leading 21-0 after one quarter and 31-7 at halftime.
They also dominated defensively with three interceptions and eight sacks. Sophomore linebacker Keith Adams had five sacks, giving him a Clemson-record 11 this season, and Robert Carswell had two interceptions.
Defensive end Terry Jolly scored on a 20-yard interception return in the third quarter.
Streeter, making his first start since breaking his collarbone Oct. 2 against North Carolina, threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to Mal Lawyer in the first half and an 18-yarder to Brian Wofford in the second half.
Clemson piled up 294 yards in the first half and scored on its first five possessions.
Zachery scored on runs of 14, 8 and 9 yards in the half, then added a tackle-breaking 44-yard run in the second half, his longest of the season.
Duke (2-7, 2-4) got a 6-yard touchdown run from Letavious Wilks with 1:49 to play in the half. Quarterback Bobby Campbell, who replaced starter Spencer Romine after Zachery’s third touchdown, kept the Blue Devils’ scoring drive alive with a 35-yard completion on fourth down to the falling Richmond Flowers.
Clemson limited the Blue Devils to 35 yards rushing in the first half.
