Clemson rips Maryland for 12th home win in row

November 10, 2012

Clemson’s Andre Elllington (23) shakes off Maryland tacklers during Saturday’s Homecoming game at Memorial Stadium.

Tajh Boyd threw for 261 yards and three touchdowns as Clemson trounced Maryland 45-10 on Saturday, the Tigers’ sixth straight win and record 12th in a row at Death Valley.  Clemson (9-1, 6-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) kept on track for a second straight double-digit victory season. Yet it’s unlikely the defending ACC champs can supplant Florida State (No. 10 BCS, No. 8 AP) as Atlantic Division winners and get a chance to win a second consecutive title.  Boyd watched with several teammates last Thursday night when the Seminoles, who defeated Clemson 49-37 back on Sept. 22, got a last-minute TD to squeak out a 28-22 win at Virginia Tech.  The Tigers’ lone hope is for these same Terps (4-6, 2-4) to rise up at home next week and defeat Florida State.
