Clemson's O-line line shows improvement

By Heather Dinich

CLEMSON, S.C. -- On Clemson's last scoring drive, which ended in a 62-yard touchdown pass to Sammy Watkins, quarterback Tajh Boyd had plenty of time to throw. The Tigers' offensive line has played much better recently than it has in the first two games, when it allowed seven sacks. It's made a difference for Clemson today, and was key in that critical touchdown pass that put Clemson ahead 35-23 here in the fourth quarter. The Noles have over 400 yards of total offense in this game against what was one of the nation's top defenses.
