Defense 9, 12:05, 49-21
(12:05 – 4th) B.T. Potter kickoff for 65 yds for a touchback
- 1st & 10 at SC 25
(11:55 – 4th) Mon Denson run for 5 yds to the SCaro 30
Lots of 2s in.
- 2nd & 5 at SC 30
(11:22 – 4th) Mon Denson run for 2 yds to the SCaro 32
- 3rd & 3 at SC 32
(11:14 – 4th) Jake Bentley pass complete to Deebo Samuel for 15 yds to the SCaro 47 for a 1ST down
This was actually a Dig route, but it attacks the same area as slot post. Tackled immediately by Turner, so at least the backside safety was there right after the catch, which is improvement, but still not good.
- 1st & 10 at SC 47
(10:40 – 4th) Rico Dowdle run for 3 yds to the 50 yard line
SZ give and Chad misses but, Shaq cleans it up.
- 2nd & 7 at 50
(10:00 – 4th) Bentley, Jake pass incomplete to Samuel, Deebo (TEAM), PENALTY CLEMSON pass interference (Turner, Nolan) 15 yards to the CLEMSON35, NO PLAY, 1ST DOWN SOCAROLINA, QB hurry by TEAM, QB hit by TEAM.
They call PI on Turner and that is a horrendously bad call.
My confidence in Nolan Turner just went up.
- 1st & 10 at CLEM 35
(9:48 – 4th) Jake Bentley pass complete to Bryan Edwards for 3 yds to the Clem 32
- 2nd & 7 at CLEM 32
(9:22 – 4th) Jake Bentley pass incomplete to Bryan Edwards
Pink forces a high throw.
- 3rd & 7 at CLEM 32
(9:17 – 4th) Jake Bentley pass incomplete to Rico Dowdle
Hi Lo crossers. Chad blitzes, gets through, and forces an early throw. They’ll have to go for it on 4th down.
- 4th & 7 at CLEM 32
(9:10 – 4th) Deebo Samuel 32 Yd pass from Jake Bentley (Parker White Kick)
Empty set, Trips boundary. Slot Post on the wide side for the TD. We were in C3, but the middle safety, Denzel, moved over to the trips side. That left AJT alone on his third of the field with nobody in the middle. AJT did his job and then tried to recover, but he couldn’t get there. So, if you saw him chasing Deebo, that’s why, the bust is not on him.
Pink 1, JWill -1, Shaq 0, Chad 1, Turner 1, Denzel -1, Fields 1, LR 1, AH 1,

HUNH. Slot Go route on IS. Great throw and great catch. IS wasn’t sure what the playcall was and never got his head around or he would’ve had a shot at a pick.

Fade to Tee in 1 on 1. Great throw and catch. And that makes their timeout usage null and void now.

Falcinelli and Cervenka drive Josh Belk backwards into the EZ and on the ground. ETN follows that right into the EZ with them. How fitting.
Robbie Caldwell, with joy in his face, meets Falcinelli and Cervenka as they come off the field.
DO 1, Bock 2, Chalk 1, TL 1, Tee 1, MH 1, ETN 1, HR 1
