North Carolina State: 14
Clemson started the game off slow but eventually pulled away from North Carolina State in the third quarter. Despite poor offensive line play and a shaky performance from the secondary, the Tigers offense managed to string together 414 yards and 22 first downs. North Carolina State's defense held tough, but the offense couldn't keep up, producing only three first downs on 16 third down attempts.
Heisman candidate Tajh Boyd threw for 244 yards and three touchdowns, while Sammy Watkins caught 10 passes for 96 of those yards.
Overall, it was a well-played game with the more talented team coming out victorious in the end.
Clemson improves to 3-0 and will play Wake Forest next weekend, while North Carolina State drops to 2-1 and will play Central Michigan next Saturday.
