*Clemson's loss today was its first on October 30 since 1943. Clemson had won seven
in a row on this date and had an overall record of 10-2 on this date entering today.
*Clemson had the ball inside the Boston College 20 three times and failed to score a
touchdown today. Entering today, Clemson had 24 red-zone possession and had scored
touchdowns 19 times, 78 percent.
*Clemson's defense held Boston College's offense to 84 yards of total offense and
just three first downs in the second half.
*Clemson defensive end Kourtnei Brown suffered a high ankle sprain in the first half
and did not return.
*Andre Ellington missed the last three Clemson possessions with a foot injury.
*When Kyle Parker threw an interception in the third period it was the first
turnover for the Clemson offense in four games, a period covering 238 offensive
plays. Earlier in the game Clemson had a fumble on a kickoff return and Parker
threw another interception in the fourth period.
*Clemson's defense has now allowed just 36 total points and just three touchdowns
over the last three games combined. The Tigers have given up just four rushing
