No big surprise here.
In the most lackluster game of the day, Clemson became bowl eligible, and much like Georgia Tech, avoided needing to get that sixth win against its SEC rival in the final week of the regular season. It's come to this for the defending division champs -- beating Duke and Wake Forest for bowl eligibility.
Kyle Parker completed all but two passes against the Deacs and threw for 194 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. It was another great day for Jamie Harper, who finished with 142 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries, but it's hard to measure the progress of Clemson's offense against a Wake Forest defense that entered the game ranked No. 100 in the country in rushing defense, No. 114 in scoring defense and No. 110 in pass efficiency defense.
