Clemson scored 28 and 24 points in the second and third quarters, while finishing with 524 yards of total offense, compared to the Seminoles' 247. Lawrence completed 20 of his 37 passes on the night, as Clemson remained unbeaten at 8-0, including 5-0 in ACC play. Tee Higgins and Amari Rodgers each had two touchdown receptions, as Clemson improved to 8-0 for the seventh time in program history, and third time in the past four seasons.
Their four second-quarter touchdowns came on consecutive drives, as they rolled to their fourth straight win over Florida State. The Seminoles allowed the most points in Doak Campbell Stadium history, as this home loss surpassed a 58-14 loss to Southern Mississippi in 1981.
For the Tigers, this is the first time they have won four straight in a series since 1970, while also making it the first time that Florida State has dropped four straight games to an ACC team. Miami did it to them once before they joined the conference. Deondre Francois continued to struggle since returning to the starting job, completing just 17 of 36 passes for 180 yards and an interception, all before exiting the game with another injury. On defense, this was the 11th straight game that Florida State has allowed at least 30 points, which is the first time they've ever done that.
The Clemson Tigers look to keep themselves in the thick of the playoff picture when they host Louisville next week. Meanwhile, the struggling Seminoles move on to visit another tough opponent in the 22nd-ranked NC State Wolfpack.
