DURHAM—Duke had no answers for the Clemson offense. None.
And, as a result, the Tigers won 56-20.
“They kept scoring and we couldn’t really stop them,” cornerback Lee Butler said. “It was just tough.”
The game was effectively over when Duke (6-4, 3-3 in the ACC), trailing by 32 points, opted to send Ross Martin for a 47-yard field goal attempt with two minutes remaining in the third quarter. Clemson (7-1, 5-1) sat starting quarterback Tajh Boyd on the ensuing drive.
