Tech (4-0) has won five straight since that loss and dispatched its first four opponents this season in convincing fashion, starting with a big victory over rival West Virginia and proceeding with three straight blowouts over Delaware, East Carolina and Old Dominion. The Tigers have been only briefly challenged since. Developing quarterbacks is something they've specialized in.
By the middle of the third quarter, Clemson held an insurmountable 24-3 lead. Tech had converted only 2-of-8 third downs. Three plays later, Cain took Clemson down to Tech's 1 with a 20-yard reception while being covered by Alexander. Freshman running back Travis Etienne leads the team with 292 rushing yards, but he is one of three Clemson players with at least 249 yards on the ground. That built the 10-point cushion.
"He's just a bigger guy", said Tim Settle, who made six tackles and one sack. Ferrell didn't even get a chance to see the play live.
Although Jackson padded his stats with a 30-yard scoring strike to Savoy with 1:32 left, it was merely cosmetic in nature. 13 Auburn 14-6, and followed with a victory over then-No. "They don't have to go out for another series".
Virginia Tech gave a valiant effort, but it was just clear that Clemson football was the better team at basically every facet of the game.
Oklahoma State rebounded from its one bad possession by putting together another good one, moving 73 yards to the Texas Tech 2-yard line, but Rudolph's third-and-goal keeper was stuffed, and Ammendola again doinked a chip shot field goal off the same right upright.

Tech then forced a punt.
Does Clemson peak before it gets cold outside? Troy (4-1) raced to leads of 17-0 and 24-7 before Danny Etling's fourth-quarter touchdown passes to Russell Gage and Foster Moreau got LSU as close as a field goal with 1:59 left.
The Hokies will have their work cut out for them if they expect to pull off an upset this time against the ultra-talented Tigers. The Hokies committed three turnovers, resulting in 14 points for Clemson. This triumph was their 12th in a row on the road, and fifth in a row against Virginia Tech, including the 2016 ACC championship. "The play before I had an opportunity to do the same thing and I missed". "We are 60 minutes here". They ran some well-executed plays.
"They've got proven track records".
Hopefully, none of the students are afraid of heights because they are at the very top of the Hokies' upper level.

Maybe the Hokies did have a conditioning advantage. Bryant passed for 316 yards and a touchdown and ran for two more scores; his team rolled up 613 total yards.

VENABLES' WORRIES: Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables has a great respect for the way Virginia Tech has developed quarterbacks in a hurry. Jackson threw two picks - one that was tipped by his receiver, the other the aforementioned Austin Bryant highlight.
Zach Lentz is a Clemson University alumnus who got his start working with the Tigers basketball team from 1999-2004. The projections have Clemson winning by 5.7 points. Doing that and giving up a fourth-quarter pick six will do you in. Aided by a 26-yard completion to Ateman on 3rd-and-5, Rudolph put Oklahoma State back in front with his second rushing touchdown, an untouched 16-yard scamper with 1:12 to play.
Tech's play-calling was clearly stunted by the increase in pressure. Josh Jackson finished the night 29-44 for 251 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions. The Hokies threw mostly screen passes over the next few drives, and it's hard to move the ball on Clemson by going side to side. Hill ran 30 times for 164 yards, and Washington caught nine passes for 127 yards and a score.
