Clemson Vs. N.C. State Final Score: Tigers Blasted Without Sammy Watkins

We've waited all year for it, and now it's here. The loss to Georgia Tech didn't really count, and the narrow escapes against Wake Forest and Maryland came up just short. But the Clemson Tigers have finally Clemsoned, falling 37-13 to the N.C. State Wolfpack, knocking themselves out of a BCS game unless they can win the ACC.

That's the good news -- the Tigers are still in the ACC Championship Game. For the Pack, this means one win away from bowl eligibility and thus a chance to finish with a winning record in a season that will best be known for being "the one without Russell Wilson." 

The Wolfpack defense forced two Tajh Boyd interceptions, as Sammy Watkins' absence couldn't have been more profound. One game ball goes to Terrell Manning, who finished with two fumble recoveries, a half-sack, and seemingly dozens of tackles. Or so.
