We’ve already had one top ten team fall today when the Georgia Bulldogs fell to Missouri at home, and now it seems that we have another one in danger of dropping one in their home stadium.

Whether or not they’re looking ahead to their showdown with Florida State next week, we don’t know, but the Clemson Tigers are currently trailing the Boston College Eagles late in the third quarter by a score of 14-10.

Inside the confines of Death Valley, Boston College has brought everything they possibly could to derail any hopes that Clemson still has for an undefeated season.

In the third, Clemson looked to be ready to run away with this when Tajh Boyd hit Sammy Watkins for a 48-yard touchdown strike, giving the Tigers the lead at 10-7.

However, on the ensuing possession, it only took the Eagles one play to let Clemson know that they’re not going down without a fight.

Quarterback Chase Rettig, who is 11-of-15 for 185 yards on the day, dropped back and fired this beautiful touchdown pass to WR Alex Amidon for 69 yards and that lead back at 14-10.
