Clemson dismantles Duke behind Tajh Boyd’s 5 TD passes

November 4, 2012

Clemson rolled up more than 700 yards of total offense Saturday night at Wallace Wade Stadium in Durham, North Carolina.

Tajh Boyd threw for 344 yards and tied a school record with five touchdown passes for the second straight week to help the 10th-ranked Tigers beat Duke 56-20 on Saturday night. ┬áDeAndre Hopkins caught three of those TD tosses in the opening quarter for the Tigers (8-1, 5-1 ACC), who scored 42 points by halftime and rolled to their fifth straight win — all by at least 14 points. Sammy Watkins and Martavis Bryant also had first-half touchdown catches, helping Clemson rack up nearly 500 yards by halftime and 718 for the game. ┬áThe win moved Clemson into a tie with No. 9 Florida State atop the ACC’s Atlantic Division, though the Seminoles beat the Tigers in September for the head-to-head tiebreaker in the division race to reach the ACC title game in Charlotte on Dec. 1.
