Kyle Parker led the way for a struggling Clemson (4-4, 2-3) offense, completing 21-of-39 pass attempts for 176 yards and two interceptions.
The Clemson defense put the first points of the day on the board when Rashard Hall picked off an errant Rettig pass and returned it 52 yards for a touchdown.
Nate Freese made it a 7-3 game on the Eagles' ensuing drive with a 21-yard field goal.
Clemson answered the call on its next drive with a 31-yard field goal by Chandler Catanzaro.
