CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and 288 yards in the final home game of his career as No. 7 Clemson beat The Citadel 52-6 on Saturday.
The game was more of a celebration than a contest for the Tigers (10-1), who now have not lost in 28 games against Football Championship Subdivision opponents.
Clemson didn't score on its first possession, but made it to the end zone the next five times it touched the ball. Boyd had touchdown passes of 8, 9, 19, 24 and 30 yards. He ended the game with 102 passing TDs in his career and tied the Tigers record of five passing TDs in a game for the sixth time. Three times Boyd has thrown for five scores in the first half.
Clemson outgained The Citadel (5-7) 558 yards to 172 yards.
