No. 8 Clemson Beats North Carolina, 59-38

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd tied a school record with five touchdown passes, defensive end Kourtnei Brown scored on interception and fumble returns and No. 8 Clemson improved to 8-0 for the first time in 11 years with a 59-38 victory over North Carolina on Saturday.

The Tigers (5-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) again put on an offensive display with 450 yards as Boyd matched Cullen Harper's 2007 mark on a day the school celebrated the 30th anniversary of its 1981 national champions.

Brown became the first Clemson defensive lineman to score a pair of touchdowns in one game in 57 years.

North Carolina (5-3, 1-3) turned the ball over six times and tailback Giovani Bernard was held to 44 yards, ending his streak of five consecutive games with 100 yards rushing.

    I certainly can't wait for November 5th after the N.C. State Wolfpack defeats the UNC-Cheater Hill Tar Holes for the 5th consecutive time, probably by 31 points again this year. Even Dook might beat Kurlina this year.

      I don't really call a 15 point win despite ECU's generousity a beat down but if it makes you feel better to call it that then so be it.
