    Death Valley, SC -- 81,000 plus came out in support of their Clemson Fighting Tigers tonight, in what was affectionately called the Asterisk Bowl. This rivalry game had all the build up of a Super Heavyweight fight at the beginning of the season, alas, The hype fizzled do in part to Clemson's lackluster season, and FSU's Coach @ThaBayouChef missing his game do to other obligations, hence the asterisk

    As Coach CT stated, Tahj Boyd is warming the bench until further notice. Chad Kelly, redshirt Freshman, started his first career game, and played well again, as he did in the second half of the BC game.

    1st Quarter action would start with Clemson receiving the ball. FSU played stout run defense, keeping McDowell in check. Kelly was able to convert on a couple of third downs to keep the drive alive. Eventually, he hooked up with Sammy Watkins on a 7 yard pass that was reviewed, but upheld, 7 - 0 Clemson. On the ensuing drive, FSU would no huddle and read option their way down to Clemsons redzone, and then a crucial mistake by Winston. FS Smith would pick a pass at the 4 yard line and cake walk it to paydirt for the pick 6. 14 - 0 Clemson. FSU responded methodically driving the ball down field with their hurry up offense. Winston hit Haplea on a playaction pass, in which he broke two tackles, and scampered 66 yards for their only TD of the day. Second Quarter action, Kelly found his new favorite target Sammy Watkins for the second time, this one for 38 yards after he beat bump and run coverage. A field goal was added to close out the half, Clemson up 24 - 7....Third quarter, Tigers would continue to beast the overmatched CPU controlled Seminoles. It became too predictable, Option, hurry up, option, hurry up, Scramble...This was their offense the entire second half. FSU managed to add a field goal late in the third, but were never closer than 14 points. Clemson scored on a 28 yard toss outside, one of the only runs for more than 10 yards against the stingy FSU front 7. Final score ended up being a blowout, 38 - 10.

    Buckeyes make it four in a row

    The Terrapins battled Ohio State throughout this game, and at times it appeared Maryland would walk away with the upset. Going into halftime Maryland led 24-17, and that lead increased to 31-17 on a scoop and score by the Terrapins. Braxton Miller and the Buckeyes responded after that play, scoring 24 unanswered points. This stretch included three touchdown passes from Miller. Carlos Hyde added a short touchdown run late in the fourth quarter; placing the game out of reach. Maryland added a very late score but they have to be disappointed with their second half performance. Miller had a huge game with 400 passing yards, 105 rushing yards and three touchdown passes. He did make some mistakes including the fumble that led to the touchdown and he threw an interception. Halback Carlos Hyde also played well in this game with 97 rushing yards and 3 touchdown runs. The defensive performance was on the disappointing side, but C.J. Barnett and Doran Grant nabbed interceptions.

    Ohio State 48
    Maryland 38
