No. 8 Clemson was able to hold on to defeat No. 5 Georgia in a tight game between two top ten teams in Death Valley. The Tigers won the game, 38-35, on the strength of five total Tajh Boyd touchdowns.
Boyd got the scoring started early, with a four-yard run in the first quarter, and showed the crowd his moneyfingers.
Despite the high final score, there were plenty of defensive highlights to be found. Georgia entered the game with plenty of questions on the defensive side of the ball - questions that Jordan Jenkins were willing to answer emphatically.
Murray finished an impressive 20/29 for 323 yards, but was without a touchdown on the day. Instead, he threw this pass into the hands of Corey Crawford.
Todd Gurley was his usual unstoppable self, running 12 times for 154 yards and two scores. Part of this can be attributed to the fact that defenders' helmets simply fly off when they come into contact with the running back.
The Tigers took the lead late in the third on a Chandler Catanzaro field goal, and got the game's first two-possession lead on a nine-yard touchdown pass from Boyd to Stanton Seckinger. Murray was able to get one back on a touchdown run, but it wasn't enough as the Tiger faithful partied in Clemson.
