Since Clemson’s back-to-back standout victories over Auburn and Louisville, there has been a lot of chatter on various forms of media about a possible third clash between Clemson and Alabama, two major programs that have played for college football’s national championship the past two seasons.
Alabama was leading Vanderbilt 21-0 at the same time that Clemson was in a sleepy and scoreless home contest with Boston College after more than one quarter of play.
The Tigers, who have been ranked in the AP top 5 for 28 consecutive weeks — the longest streak in school history — claimed a 34-7 win in an ACC contest in Death Valley.
But it was tough sledding, as BC punter Mike Knoll continually pinned the Tigers inside their 10-yard line.
One thing is certain, though: Much more offensive production will be needed in the first 45 minutes on the road next week against Justin Fuente’s Hokies or the Tigers may be in store for a too-close-for-comfort contest again.
