The freshman appears headed to stardom after another dazzling performance on Saturday. Etienne rushed for 113 yards and a pair of touchdowns, finishing with more rushing yards than Boston College’s entire team. For the season, he’s averaging 12.7 yards per carry.
Bryant had another stellar game, finishing with four tackles, including two for loss. The junior was constantly in the Eagles backfield and had three quarterback hurries in addition to a sack.
The linebacker was all over the field, finishing with a team-high 12 tackles, including a tackle for loss. Joseph was a big reason why BC was held to less than 100 rushing yards.
Clemson’s passing game didn’t do much, but it wasn’t because of Renfrow. The junior was targeted six times and caught all six passes, finishing with 53 yards.
Kelly Bryant continues to take too many hits. Clemson’s offensive line struggled to slow down Harold Landry, who had eight tackles, a tackle for loss and hit Bryant on one of his two interceptions.
Bryant did a nice job protecting the football the first three weeks of the season, but threw two picks and fumbled on Saturday. C.J. Fuller also fumbled, but the Tigers recovered the ball both times.
The Eagles defense played well enough to win the game for three quarters, but the offense did nothing. Boston College started a drive at the Clemson 28 and didn’t score. On another drive, Boston College drove to the Clemson 33 but ended up punting from the 36.
