Clemson Smacks Virginia Tech, Final Score 23-3

It is time for the college football world to take the Clemson Tigers seriously. Today Clemson traveled to Blacksburg, Va., and crushed the Virginia Tech Hokies 23-3.

In the last three weeks Clemson has beat the defending national champ Auburn Tigers, pre-season ACC favorite Florida State Seminoles and last year's ACC champion Virginia Tech. Both teams came into the game undefeated, and Clemson will return to South Carolina 5-0 expecting a Top 10 ranking when the new polls come out tomorrow.

Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd led the Tigers with 204 yards passing and another 28 yards on the ground. Tiger tight end Dwayne Allen led the receiving group for Clemson, hauling in a 32-yard touchdown catch from Boyd early in the third quarter. Clemson never trailed in the game, scoring the first points with a Chandler Catanzaro field goal. Clemson runningbacks Andre Ellington and Mike Bellamy also crossed the goal line for the Tigers.

The folks in Death Valley are no doubt partying tonight. For more on the game check Clemson blog out Shaking the Southland.

Towson plays Maryland closer than the final score, 28-3 : In a game that was a heck of a lot closer than the final score, Maryland beats the Towson Tigers 28-3. It was a struggle for Maryland, who held just a 7-3 lead at the half thanks to a missed Towson field goal. Maryland struggled on both sides of the ball, but thanks to multiple turnovers in the second half Maryland was able to pull awayFor more on the Towson Vs. Maryland game, visit this Storystream.

Bethune-Cookman stayed within a touchdown until Miami finally pulled away in the fourth quarter. Running back Lamar Miller had a nice day rushing the football, gaining 102 yards on 14 carries, including a 43-yard touchdown run.

Idaho falls Virginia in OT, 21-20: Coming off a disappointing loss to Southern Miss, most expected the Virginia Cavaliers to rebound against the Idaho Vandals. As Lee Corso would say, "Not so fast my friend!" Virginia jumped out to an early 14-0 lead in the first quarter, but late in the fourth quarter Idaho scored 8 points to send the game into overtime. Virginia scored on their opening overtime possession, as did Idaho. Idaho however, went for the win and failed the two-point coversion. For more on Virginia, visit Streaking the Lawn.
