CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - How's this for quick scoring? Two touchdowns with no time off the clock.
That's what happened in the first quarter for No. 5 Clemson in Saturday's game against South Carolina State.
After Wayne Gallman ran 3 yards for a score, the ensuing kickoff went to Ahmaad Harris in the end zone. The receiver flipped the ball to the official before taking a knee. That's a fumble. Clemson's Denzel Johnson pounced on the ball for the touchdown.
A week ago against Troy, Clemson was guilty of a special teams gaffe. Ray-Ray McCloud's 75-yard punt return ended when the receiver let go of the ball at the 1 before reaching the end zone.
