In a national championship run, teams sometimes have to get a break here or there to keep their title hopes alive. This past Saturday at home, Clemson faced one of these critical situations against North Carolina State. The Wolfpack had a 33-yard field goal on the last play of regulation to earn a huge upset victory.
Destiny sided with the Tigers. N.C. State missed the chip shot attempt and Clemson prevailed in the first overtime 24-17. The win keeps the Tigers (7-0, 4-0 in ACC) at No. 3 in the Amway Coaches’ Poll while the heartbreaking defeat sent the Wolfpack to 4-2 on the season and 1-1 in conference play.
