Clemson Leads Boston College 10-3 After The First Quarter

CHESTNUT HILL – Boston College true freshman quarterback Chase Rettig threw an interception on his first pass attempt that was returned 51 yards by Clemson sophomore safety Rashard Hall to give the Tigers an early 7-0 lead with 11:59 left in the quarter.

The Eagles responded with a nine-play, 70-yard drive the ended in a Nate Freese 21-yard field goal, cutting Clemson’s lead to 7-3 with 7:55 left in the quarter.

The Tigers weren’t finished, though. Quarterback Kyle Parker led his troops down the field on a nine-play, 64-yard drive that placed them in the red zone.

Thankfully, Boston College’s defenders stepped up to the task and kept the Tigers from gaining the first down.

Still, the Tigers got three points out of the ordeal, as kicker Chandler Catanzaro hit a 31-yard field goal to build Clemson’s lead to 10-3 with 3:32 left in the quarter.
