Clemson takes care of business in 52-13 win over SC State

Posted: Updated:

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd ran for a touchdown and No. 4 Clemson returned two interceptions for scores for the first time in program history in a 52-13 victory over FCS opponent South Carolina State on Saturday.

Boyd accounted for five TDs a week ago and became a prime Heisman Trophy contender as the Tigers (2-0) defeated No. 11 Georgia 38-35.

In this one, Boyd scored Clemson's first touchdown and played only a half against the Bulldogs (0-2) before finding a spot on the Death Valley sidelines next to offensive coordinator Chad Morris. That was more than enough, though, for Clemson to move to 27-0 all-time against FCS teams.

Cornerbacks Martin Jenkins and Darius Robinson each had pick-6 scores to help the Tigers to a 38-7 lead by halftime.

Backup Cole Stoudt had three touchdown passes, two to reserve Germone Hopper, in the blowout win.

Boyd finished 14-of-23 passing for 169 yards.
