Deshaun Watson, No. 1 Clemson Romp Past Wake Forest 33-13

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) – Deshaun Watson and No. 1 Clemson enjoyed another big day and kept on track for the College Football Playoff with a 33-13 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.

Watson threw for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth, leading the Tigers (11-0, 8-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) to their seventh straight game with over 500 yards.

Watson started the scoring with a 3-yard run, then connected on TD passes of 44 yards to Charone Peake, 11 yards to Deon Cain and 47 yards to Germone Hopper.

The Tigers gained 506 yards against a Wake Forest defense that held Notre Dame to 282 yards a week earlier.

All that stands in the way of a perfect, 12-0 regular season for Clemson is next week’s game at arch rival South Carolina, which lost to FCS opponent Citadel earlier Saturday.

Wake Forest (3-8, 1-6) has lost five straight and seven of its past eight.
