The fact that Week 9 of the college football season fell on Halloween was rather ironic. While the South Carolina Gamecocks rested at home during a bye week, the Clemson Tigers ended up getting spooked in Death Valley!
The Tigers put their undefeated record and top spot in the national rankings on the line against the visiting Eagles from Boston College. Without the services of starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence, Clemson found itself playing from behind throughout the first half, as the Eagles raced to 21-7 lead following a defensive touchdown. The second half was a different story, as Clemson’s defense locked down the Eagles and the Tiger’s offense came to life with three second-half touchdowns. Clemson avoided a big upset scare, winning by a final score of 34-28. As a key part of that strong defensive effort that helped seal the victory, freshman defensive lineman, Bryan Bresee, earned Terminix Pest Player of the Game honors.
Although South Carolina was idle, Gamecock’s coaches made selections for the Terminix Pest Player of the Game for the season’s first half. Taking home the first-half hardware were running back Kevin Harris and cornerback Jaycee Horn.
