Pushing for Paydirt These are still a thing.
#1 Miami 35
Georgia Tech 14
Miami came into this game against GT after a big emotional win last week and there may have still been a bit of hangover as things did not start out well for the Canes. The first half saw the Hurricane offense absolutely dominated by Georgia Tech. They only manged to gain a net total of 43 yards until right before halftime when Ryan Williams found Phillip Dorsett for a 19 yard touchdown with 17 seconds left. Luckily for the Hurricanes their defense did a terrific job and kept the game from getting out of hand as they abused the Georgia Tech Quarterbacks all day (Knocking Vlad Lee out of the game TWICE). The GT QBs were very scramble happy, but no longer employed the triple option that the Canes we're expecting. It seemed as if they only called one play. Spread the field, wait a few seconds and start to scramble. The defense was just a tad too quick for GT though as they employed a combination of QB spys, blitzes and QB Contains to keep the Georgia Tech offense in check .
Georgia Tech would take the lead once more in the 3rd quarter, but they Miami offense found its rhythm as Ryan Williams would find Rashawn Scott from 28 yards out and take the lead. Duke Johnson would cement the victory as he had a big 2nd half and found the endzone 3 times to make the final score 35-14.
Game ball goes to the Miami defense as they would sack the quarterback an outstanding 11 times and hold the GT offense to under 100 yards rushing and under 100 yards passing.
Clemson Exorcises Demon Deacons
Wake Goes Down 41-14
Winston Salem, NC- Clemson's defense showed up for the first time this season and held the Demon Deacon's to 28 yards of offense. The DL played in the backfield all day, and not even the hurry up offense of Wake Forest could slow them down. The Deacons only had 16 yards rushing, and played most of the game from their half of the field.
Clemson had a balanced offense going for 253 yards passing and 267 yards rushing. DJ Howard was the leader with 70 yards on the ground and 1 TD. Kelly threw 1 TD and 1 Interception on the day. Clemson spread the rock around in the ground game with 7 different players getting carries.
Clemson will have a tough matchup with NC State next week.
