CLEMSON, S.C. (WMBF) – The Clemson Tigers kept their unbeaten record intact and improved to 5-0 after beating the third-ranked Louisville Cardinals on Saturday night by a 42-36 final.

After a scoreless for first quarter, both teams loosened up in the second, and Clemson jumped out to a 28-10 lead at halftime, thanks in part to two touchdown catches from Deon Cain and a 24-yard touchdown run from Artavis Scott.

The Cardinals bounced back in the second half, scoring 26 unanswered points to go ahead 36-28, behind the work of Heisman hopeful Lamar Jackson. He ran for 162 yards and two scores, while throwing for 295 and an additional touchdown.

The Tiger offense put things back together in the fourth quarter, marching downfield and scoring on a Deshaun Watson touchdown pass to Mike Williams. The Tigers remained trailing 36-34 after a failed two-point attempt.

After forcing a three and out, the Tigers got the ball once more, going 85 yards in just eight plays, resulting in a Jordan Leggett 31-yard touchdown reception. After a successful two-point conversion, the Tigers went back up 42-36 to hold on for the win.

Watson went 20-31 for 306 yards and five touchdowns. He also threw three interceptions, part of four Clemson turnovers on the night. Ben Boulware led the Tiger defense with 18 tackles.

The Tigers move to 2-0 in ACC play, and are in sole possession of first place in the Atlantic Division. They are next in action on Friday, October 7th at Boston College.
