    Clemson has had little time to celebrate its 42-36 victory over Louisville last Saturday night, a result that gave the Tigers a major leg up in their bid for a second straight ACC Coastal Division title and berth in the conference championship game. Authentic Azeem Victor Jersey .The third-ranked Tigers (5-0, 2-0) were back at work the next day to begin preparing for a rare weeknight game against Boston College. The Tigers and Eagles (3-2, 0-2) clash at 7 p.m. ET Friday at Alumni Stadium in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts.Its a quick turnaround, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. But we have good momentum. We have that windshield mentality and will continue to have that daily focus and trying to play to a standard that we talk about.This is the biggest game of the year for us, and we know were going to have to play well. We were very lucky to win up there two years ago.This is actually the second time during the young season that the Tigers have had to contend with a quick turnaround. They had only five days between games after beating South Carolina State in their third game before going to Atlanta for a Thursday night encounter with Georgia Tech.They won that game 26-7 but added only a field goal in the second half after going to locker room at halftime up 23-0. They had only 95 yards of total offense in the last two quarters after amassing 347 in the first half. Compare that with the 568 yards of total offense they had in their pivotal win over Louisville.Boston College lost to that same Georgia Tech team 17-14 in its season opener and later lost 49-0 to Virginia Tech to see its conference losing streak extended to 10 games. The Eagles havent beaten an ACC opponent since the 2014 season finale when they beat Syracuse 28-7.But Swinney isnt taking anything for granted.They are 3-2 and theyre coming off a big win, he said, referring to BCs 35-3 rout of Buffalo. And theyll be excited to play on national TV up there Friday night.With their victory over the Bulls, the Eagles matched their win total for the entire 2015 season. Quarterback Patrick Towles, a graduate transfer from Kentucky, passed for a season-high 234 yards and two touchdowns on a 14-of-25 day.Wide receiver Jeff Smith, a former quarterback, had five catches for 65 yards, and running backs Jon Hilliman and Davon Jones split the rushing load with 107 yards between them.BC coach Steve Addazio was happy with the overall performance but concedes his Eagles will have to step up their game against the Tigers.We have got to squeeze out the very obvious mental errors that are disrupting us right now, he said, because we wont get away with it against a team like Clemson, which is an understatement.The Tigers are coming off their best performance of the year in rallying to beat Louisville. After jumping out 28-10, they saw the Cardinals storm back with 26 consecutive points for a 36-28 lead.But the Tigers rallied for two touchdowns in the fourth quarter and cornerback Marcus Edmonds fourth-down stop of Louisvilles James Quick a yard short of a first down at Clemsons 3-yard line on the Cardinals final drive secured the win.Quarterback Deshaun Watson threw five touchdown passes in completing 20 of 31 passes for 306 yards and also rushed for 91 yards, second to running back Wayne Gallmans 110 yards.It was a good sign for Watson, the Heisman Trophy candidate who went into the night with just 120 rushing yards total the first four games and was averaging 249 yards a game passing.Every win is a confidence builder, Watson said. You find a way to get the W and move on. Each game, no matter who were playing, we celebrate and move on. We understand that we have to put the work in during the week because anybody can be beaten.Linebacker Ben Boulware had a big effort on defense for Clemson with 18 tackles that included a sack of Louisvilles Lamar Jackson.That is kind of Luke Kuechly-ish, Swinney said, referring, appropriately enough, to the former BC all-American and current Carolina Panther. I always wanted a guy like Luke Kuechly on my team. Authentic Nick Nelson Jersey . The CFLs leading rusher kept adding to his gaudy numbers this season and scored the winning touchdown with just over two minutes to play. The New Westminster, B.C., native plowed three yards into the end zone for the last score of a heated, see-saw battle between the two teams with the best records in the CFL. Wholesale Raiders Jerseys . "I wrote 36 on my sheet at the beginning of the game," the Cincinnati coach said, referring the yard line the ball would need to be snapped from. . The Lightning are 2-0 so far on a four-game road trip, giving the club five straight wins as the guest and improving Tampas away record this season to 11-8-2. CHAMPAIGN, Ill. -- Purdue came to Illinois Saturday reeling from a 43-point loss at Maryland and living with growing pressure on its coach, Darrel Hazell, to win.The Boilermakers got just what they needed from a freshman kicker who had missed more field goals this season than he had made and a freshman running back starting his first game, knocking off the Illini in overtime, 34-31.The running back, Brian Lankford-Johnson, carried the ball 18 times for 127 yards and a touchdown.The kicker, J.D. Dellinger, had missed three of his five field goals on the season. But he hit from 28 yards on the games final play, and set off a wild celebration.The Boilermakers (3-2, 2-1 Big Ten) rushed for the Illinois sideline, mistakenly thinking they would find the Cannon trophy the teams play for there, before finally mobbing their band in the south end zone.Dellinger said the aftermath of the win was a blur.I never thought about celebrations because Ive never been put in this position before so Ill have to watch it again -- I dont remember it honestly, he said.Hazell, who earlier in the week acknowledged the pressure, said the win was a big lift.People dont understand how hard it is to win football games, all the pieces have to fit together and you need a break every once in a while, he said.Illinois (1-4, 0-2) kicker Chase McLaughlin had a chance to win the game on the final play of regulation but his 41-yard attempt clanged squarely off the right upright. McLaughlin had already made three field goals, including one from 47 yards, and had been a perfect 8-8 on the year.Every loss hurts, but some hurt a little bit more than others, Illinois coach Lovie Smith said. This is the one that hurts a little bit moreWe just kept shooting ourselves in the foot, a red-eyed Illinois center Joe Spencer added, noting that Illinois had 12 penalties for 125 yards.Crouch, a sophomore, carried the ball 17 times for 137 yards and two touchdowns.Lunt was knocked out of the game in the second quarter on a big hit by linebacker Danny Ezechukwu, who was flagged for roughing the passer. Smith said immediately after the game that he only knows Lunts injury is a concern.THE TAKEAWAYPurdue: The Boilermakers are out of the Big Ten West cellar and suddenly havve a winning record and are halfway to bowl eligibility. Authentic P. J. Hall Jersey. They also ran the ball for 231 yards (an average of 5.6 a carry) and three touchdowns on a team whose defense was considered its strength. But their run defense was still a problem. Illinois ran for 315 yards.Illinois: It isnt clear yet just how long Lunt will be out, but the Illini got a look at what their offense is likely to be if he misses any time. Crouch is not a consistent deep-ball threat. But he ran for more yards Saturday than Lunt has at Illinois. Illinois is still in search of its first Big Ten win, and its first win since the opener against Murray State.Right now, were not a good football team, Smith said. Thats where we are. Were facing reality right now.INJURY REPORTWhile Lunts status is not known, starting cornerback Darius Mosely left the game after a hard hit in the third quarter and backup cornerback Cameron Watkins was also knocked out with an unspecified injury. For Purdue, receiver Dominique Young left the game in the fourth quarter with an injury to his right leg. He was carted off the field with his leg in an inflatable cast. Jones did not make the trip to Champaign as he tries to recover from a shoulder injury that has nagged him all season.YELLOW FLAGSBoth teams had trouble with penalties, and not just the quantity of flags thrown. Illinois defensive end Carroll Phillips was flagged for roughing quarterback David Blough in the fourth quarter, and also called for targeting on the play and ejected. Purdue nose guard Eddy Wilson was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct and roughing the passer on one play for knocking Crouch to the ground and then stepping on his helmet.UP NEXTPurdue: The Boilermakers host Iowa next Saturday, the first Big Ten home game on their schedule.Illinois: The Illini make their first trip to Rutgers since the Scarlet Knights joined the Big Ten and just the third meeting between the schools.
