BC ties the game with a 1-yard TD run, and the natives are getting restless in Clemson. The Tigers have run 24 plays for 85 yards since scoring on a long drive in the second quarter. Clemson's normally explosive offense has just two plays of more than 15 yards — both completions to Hunter Renfrow.

After opening the year behind two veterans on the depth chart, Clemson RBs Tavien Feaster (soph) and Travis Etienne (fr) have electrified the Tigers' run game the last two weeks. They helped key a 13-play, 95-yard drive to give Clemson a 7-0 lead, and the two have combined for 248 yards on 26 carries in their last 6 quarters.

To make room for QB Taylor Heinicke on the practice squad (officially signed Saturday), the Patriots have released WR Demarcus Ayers from the practice squad. Ayers had signed with the Patriots despite having an offer to return to the Steelers' practice squad, but the addition of receiver Riley McCarron on Friday might have altered the team's practice squad plans with him.

At the end of the first quarter, Clemson — a 34-point favorite — is tied 0-0 with Boston College. This shouldn't be a huge surprise. Two years ago here, Clemson led BC just 10-7. Four years ago, it was also 0-0. The Tigers won both those games by double digits.
