Tigers catch a break

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

CLEMSON, S.C. -- In the midst of an interception, Clemson safety Rashard Hall tried to throw a lateral to DeAndre McDaniel, but instead found Kavell Conner who ran it back 29 yards to put the Tigers in scoring position at the 24-yard line. It was an odd play, but this time, Clemson was able to make something out of the Noles' mistake.

For the most part.

Clemson missed another extra point, but still leads 27-24. And there's way too much time left in this game (nine minutes) for any Clemson fans to feel comfortable. This game has been filled with game-changing mistakes, and it's fitting for how the Atlantic Division has struggled this year.
