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.

Clemson Vs. N.C. State Halftime Score: Clemsoning In Progress

The Clemson Tigers have three big comebacks to their credit this year, twice surviving two-touchdown deficits and once overcoming an 18-point hole. They've decided to up the difficulty against the N.C. State Wolfpack, facing a 27-3 disadvantage with 30 minutes left.

As somewhat expected, this weekend has been a death trap for superior teams. Thursday and Friday both saw upsets, and Saturday has provided quite a few challenges for talented squads. The No. 7 Tigers could be the day's first top-10 team to fall.

Mike Glennon has thrown for 113 yards and two touchdowns, while Clemson's offense may not have yet arrived. Tony Creecy and James Washington have combined for 95 yards rushing, and the Pack D has forced a pair of Clemson turnovers.

The ACC's hopes of putting two teams in BCS games for the first time: dwindling.
