C.J. Davidson ran for a 32-yard touchdown with 9:35 to play and No. 24 Clemson stopped a Boston College drive in the final minutes to beat the Eagles 17-13 on Saturday.
Cole Stoudt completed 29 of 45 passes for 285 yards, and the Tigers (5-2, 4-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) got help from a missed BC extra point. The Eagles (4-3, 1-2) moved to the Clemson 29, converted a fourth-and-1 and then Tyler Murphy found an open receiver streaking for the end zone.
But Tyler Rouse couldn't hold onto the ball, and Clemson took over on downs and ran out the clock.
Murphy ran for 55 yards on 13 carries and also completed 8 of 19 passes for 108 yards.
