Watson, No. 3 Clemson dominate Boston College

Deshaun Watson threw four touchdown passes and helped clear the way for Wayne Gallman's 59-yard scoring run with a block and No. 3 Clemson beat host Boston College 56-10 on Friday night.

Clemson (6-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) extended its conference winning streak to 12 games and its road winning streak to eight, which matches a school record set from 1978-79.

"I've been doing this a long time. There's a reason that record's only eight. It's really hard to do," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said, doing his postgame news conference with the big bronze O'Rourke-McFadden Trophy that goes to the winner of this rivalry sitting on the table next to him.

Boston College (3-3, 0-3) lost its 11th consecutive ACC game.

Clemson broke three plays of at least 50 yards in the first quarter, two for touchdowns and another that set up a score.

No. 19 Boise State 49, New Mexico 21 * Brett Rypien threw five touchdown passes three to Cedrick Wilson and visiting Boise State overwhelmed New Mexico.

Rypien was 21 of 28 and 391 yards, and Wilson had nine catches for 167 yards. Thomas Sperbeck, who had 20 catches for 281 yards last season against New Mexico, added nine catches for 198 yards and two scores.

Lobos quarterback Lamar Jordan became the first opponent to rush for 100 yards against Boise State, finishing with 139 yards. But he only completed four passes for 39 yards.

After Boise State went three-and-out on its first possession, the Broncos benefited from several New Mexico miscues on its first touchdown drive. Two facemask penalties kept the drive alive, and defensive back Daniel Henry dropped an interception. Two plays later, Rypien hit Wilson for the score. …
