Clemson dominates Wake Forest 48-27

The Tigers used a powerful running game and explosive catches by receiver Beaux Collins to score its first win of the season over a ranked opponent.

CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson won its 13th straight over No. 13 Wake Forest with a 48-27 victory that prevented the Demon Deacons from winning the ACC Atlantic Division. 

Wake Forest can still advance to the ACC title game by beating Boston College next Saturday. Clemson remains in the hunt but will need Wake Forest and No. 25 North Carolina State to lose once more. 

The Tigers won their 34th straight game at home and finally looked like the powerhouse they were projected to be when the season began. They sacked Wake Forest quarterback Sam Hartman seven times.

Clemson improves to 8-3 overall and will finish 6-2 in the ACC.
