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.
