Clemson routs South Carolina State
Clemson, SC (Sports Network) - Martin Jenkins and Darius Robinson each returned interceptions for touchdowns, leading fourth-ranked Clemson to a 52-13 rout of South Carolina State.
There could have been somewhat of a letdown for the Tigers (2-0) after their thrilling 38-35 season-opening win against Georgia, but Clemson received a strong defensive effort and a solid game from quarterback Tajh Boyd as well as backup Cole Stoudt.
Boyd completed 14-of-23 passes for 169 yards and added a touchdown on the ground as Clemson built a 38-7 halftime cushion. Stoudt got plenty of playing time and missed only one of his 20 passes for 143 yards with a trio of touchdowns.
Richard Cue threw for 84 yards with a score and the two picks for South Carolina State (0-2) of the MEAC. Tyler McDonald racked up 138 yards on four receptions, including a 63-yard touchdown in defeat.
