This game is reportedly still going on, and each team kicked a field goal. Clemson still leads, 38-10. A quick recap of the quarter - punt, field goal, ShawnPettyfumble, field goal missed, field goal good. It was Petty's third lost fumble of the day, and Maryland heads into the fourth still down four scores.
Notably, on the drive leading up to Petty's fumble, he ran five times for 12 yards and completed a seven-yard pass to Devonte Campbell. Clemson is currently driving, after converting a fourth-down attempt near midfield.
Maryland's field goal was made by Brad Craddock, previously benched in favor of Brendan Magistro. Craddock, who also hit the Terps' extra point attempt earlier in the game, made the kick from 39 yards.
Clemson and Tajh Boyd picked up where they left off to start out the second quarter. Boyd completed a 12-yard pass to Sammy Watkins, and after Watkins lost two yards on a rush, Boyd found Brandon Ford on a perfect pass to the end zone for a 22-yard score, giving the Tigers a 28-0 lead.
After Albert Reid ran 19 yards out of the Wild Crab, the Terps were forced to punt four plays later. Adam Humphries muffed it, however, giving Maryland the ball inside the red zone. After Brandon Ross ran for one yard, Shawn Petty rolled out and found Devonte Campbell open in the end zone for a 17-yard touchdown, cutting the lead to 28-7.
On Clemson's next drive, they slowly drove down on the field on the strength of the legs of Andre Ellington and Roderick McDowell, and on second-and-goal from the seven Boyd decided to take it himself. Boyd was hit hard by Matt Robinson at the goal .line and the ball came out - with Kenneth Tate recovering.
From their own two, Maryland gave the ball to Brandon Ross out of an I-Formation. He sped around the right side and gained 44 yards, the longest rush by a Terp this year. Maryland would punt four plays later.
Clemson scored again later in the quarter on a six-yard touchdown from Andre Ellington, and the Terps trail 35-7. We'll be back after halftime.
We're through one quarter in College Park, and Clemson has more touchdowns than Maryland has first downs. The Tigers lead 21-0 in what has been an uncontested drubbing thus far.
After the teams traded punts (Maryland even got a first down!), Clemson's offense drove down the field easily. Tajh Boyd completed an 11-yard pass to Sammy Watkins to start out the drive, and after an incomplete pass, Roderick McDowell ran for four yards. Boyd then completed a short pass to Watkins that went for 20 yards, and three plays later he found Adam Humphries over the middle for a 13-yard score. It was Humphries' first career touchdown reception, and the Tigers took a 7-0 lead.
On Maryland's next drive, Shawn Petty rolled out to the left side and the ball simply fell out of his hands as he wound back to throw. Corey Crawford scooped it up and ran into the end zone for a 16-yard score, making it 14-0 Tigers.
After a three-and-out for Maryland, the Tigers got the ball back. Andre Ellington ran for one yard, and then Tajh Boyd fumbled, with Joe Vellano recovering. Brandon Ross ran for 16 yards, getting Maryland into Clemson territory, but Shawn Petty fumbled on the next play, giving the Tigers the ball back.
Clemson was able to score again off that turnover, albeit not as quickly as the first time. After Ellington ran for two yards and Boyd had an incomplete pass, Boyd found DeAndre Hopkins for 12 yards. Three plays later on third-and-one, Boyd was able to sneak through for a first down on the ground, and then found DeAndre Hopkins in the end zone on an absolutely perfect throw for a 28-yard score. Clemson led 21-0.
