Wake Forest Struggled At Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- C.J. Spiller ran for two touchdowns and Clemson put aside two weeks of turmoil to get back in the ACC's Atlantic Division race with a 38-3 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.

Spiller had scoring runs of 66 and 14 yards for the Tigers (3-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), who seemed ready to implode after an unexpected 24-21 loss to Maryland on Oct. 3.

The team held a players only meeting when it returned to campus and an anonymous blog report during the bye week detailed a shouting match at practice between coach Dabo Swinney and offensive coordinator Billy Napier.

Against Wake Forest (4-3, 2-2), though, Clemson showed its resiliency with its best performance of the season.

Freshman quarterback Kyle Parker threw for a score and ran for another. Spiller finished with 106 yards for his 10th career 100-yard game and Clemson's defense sacked ACC pass-efficiency leader Riley Skinner five times.
