Week 2’s game of the week placed Clemson at Texas A&M. The hot topics of this game were how would A&M’s defense handle Clemson’s dual quarterback situation,and how Clemson would play in a hostile environment.
Clemson, the clear favorite, jumped out to a 14-3 halftime lead, and was up 28-13 late in the third. A&M brought it to an 8 point lead and on a 3rd & 8 with 2 minutes left it looked as if A&M had scored. However, after review it was ruled that Quartney Davis fumbled the ball out the endzone, and Clemson took over on the touch-back.
A&M’s defense came up with a clutch stop handing Kellen Mond and the offense the ball back. Mond’s drive to the endzone was nothing less than spectacular, as the Aggies scored with 46 seconds remaining putting the score at 28-26 Clemson out front. A&M went for two but Clemson’s defense held strong, forcing an interception in the endzone.
Clemson improves to 2-0 as A&M falls to 1-1. Keep an eye on Texas A&M as they go on the road to Alabama in a couple of weeks, and as for Clemson, they have shown they can handle tough road games.
We apologize for the delay, but over the weekend Landon’s editor took on a home improvement project. His lack of skill, combined with a daunting task, has kept him preoccupied.
