(Saturday, November 22nd)
Final Score: Clemson 13, Virginia 3
Charlottesville, VA (Sports Network) - C.J. Spiller's touchdown pass in the
first quarter proved to be enough as the Clemson Tigers defeated the Virginia
Cavaliers, 13-3, in ACC action at Scott Stadium.
Spiller, who carried the ball 14 times for a mere 18 yards for the Tigers
(6-5, 4-4 ACC), hit Tyler Grisham with a 15-yard TD strike in the first frame
to kick off the day's scoring.
The Cavaliers (5-6, 3-4) generated a mere 190 yards of offense as Marc Verica
converted 24-of-39 passing for 160 yards himself, but he was sacked twice and
intercepted three times in the affair.
After Grisham's TD catch in the first, Clemson kicker Mark Buchholz knocked
through the first of his two field goals, hitting from 32 yards to give the
visitors a 10-0 advantage.
Before the half could end Virginia scored its first and only points of the day
on a 34-yard field goal by Robert Randolph to cap a 13-play, 60-yard drive.
Following a scoreless third quarter Buchholz converted a 23-yard field goal to
secure the 10-point win.
