CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney not yet satisfied with his offense, despite a 45-point first half that was the Tigers' biggest since their 1981 national championship season.
No. 11 Clemson (2-0) scored touchdowns on five of its first six possessions and even got an ACC-record setting 61-yard field goal from Spencer Benton to lead Ball State 45-10 at the break.
The Tigers starters spent the second half on the bench in the 52-27 victory.
It may not have looked like it to those at Memorial Stadium, but Swinney said there were plenty of mistakes and missed opportunities for his club to work on.
ne thing Swinney's not worried about? Returning star Sammy Watkins disrupting the offensive flow. Watkins will play Saturday against Furman after serving a two-game suspension.
