                        === Clemson dominates Furman ===
 
 Clemson,  SC  (Sports Network) - Tajh  Boyd threw for two touchdowns and Andre
 Ellington  added  two more  scores on  the ground,  as the 11th-ranked Clemson
 Tigers dispatched Furman, 41-7, at Memorial Stadium.
 
 Boyd  ended  20-of-29 for  310 yards,  while Ellington totaled  59 yards on 15
 rushes  for  the Tigers  (3-0), who  open up ACC  action next Saturday against
 Florida State.
 
 DeAndre  Hopkins led all receivers with 95 yards on seven receptions and Sammy
 Watkins posted a 58-yard run for a touchdown.
 
 Reese  Hannon was  19-of-29 for 235 yards,  one TD and an interception for the
 Paladins (0-3), who travel to Presbyterian seven days from now.
 
 Jerodis  Williams  totaled  87  yards  on 19  carries,  and  Jordan  Snellings
 accounted  Furman's lone score  thanks to a 37-yard jaunt on his lone catch of
 the contest.
 
 Furman  took the  ball inside the hosts'  10-yard line on its first drive, but
 Hannon  was picked off  by at the goal line on fourth down. Clemson then moved
 80  yards  and Ellington  capped the  drive with a  10-yard touchdown run that
 proved to be the lone score of the opening quarter.
 
 "We  responded  and  our  defense  made  some  great  stops  and  forced  some
 turnovers,"  Clemson  coach Dabo Swinney said.  "More players got some time on
 the field. We have been making improvements and can apply what we learned, but
 we are 3-0 and that's right where we want to be."
 
 Watkins  then broke loose for a 58-yard dash to the end zone on the first play
 of the second quarter.
 
 A  pair of  field goals  from  Chandler Catanzaro  --  from 46  and 22  yards,
 respectively  --  bookended  Furman's  first  score  of  the  day,  a  37-yard
 connection from Hannon to Snellings and the Tigers led 20-7 at the half.
 
 Ellington  punctuated Clemson's  second drive of the third quarter with a one-
 yard plunge, and after holding the visitors to three-and-out, Boyd hit Brandon
 Ford for a 30-yard TD and 34-7 advantage.
 
 Boyd  found Martavis Bryant  39 yards away on the second play of the fourth to
 cap the scoring.
 
 "They  have  a good scheme," Furman  coach Bruce Fowler said. "They execute it
 well. They have a quarterback who seems to me to be really comfortable in what
 he's  doing.  They do a  lot of  stuff with motion.  You're trying to find out
 where  they  are, and  then  they're  moving. Those  are  all  things, from  a
 defensive  standpoint,  that create  problems before  the ball's ever snapped.
 Then the ball's snapped, and they're fast."
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Clemson leads the all-time series 42-10-2, including 30 wins in a row and have
 gone  undefeated  in the last  31 meetings with Furman  since its last loss in
 1936  ...  Furman was  held to  110 yards rushing  and converted 2-of-14 third
 downs ... Ryan Culbreath led the Paladins with 69 yards on six grabs.
