No. 12 Clemson rolls over Ball State

By Andrea Adelson


The Clemson offense picked up right where it left off last week against Auburn, rolling to a 52-27 win against Ball State.

There were a few records in this game: Tajh Boyd played about a quarter and a half, and ended up going 19-of-23 for 229 yards and three touchdowns. Andre Ellington added two scores and had 41 total yards, and the starters essentially played about a half.

No. 12 Clemson ended up running 84 plays on offense, just a shade under the 87 it ran last week against Auburn. The Tigers also have posted over 500 yards of offense in back-to-back games for the first time since at least 1980. They get Furman next week before a huge showdown at Florida State on Sept. 22.
