The South Carolina State Bulldogs looked great in their opening game of the year, but they will have a much harder time beating the #23 Clemson Tigers on Saturday in their second. Clemson beat the Bulldogs 52-13 in 2013.
South Carolina State showed that they may be one of the better teams in the FCS this year by dismantling Benedict 63-0 in their opening game of the season. They put up 541 yards of offense without turning the ball over in that game, while also holding Benedict to just 228 yards.
Bulldogs running backs Jalen Simmons and Dondre Lewis-Freeman combined for 137 yards and four touchdowns in the game, while quarterback Adrian Kollock connected on 15 of his 18 passes for 160 yards.
Clemson played well in their opening game against the then-ranked #6 Georgia Bulldogs, but they were outscored 24-0 the rest of the way and ended up losing 45-21. The biggest discrepancy between the teams was in their rushing attacks, with Georgia gaining 328 yards on the ground and Clemson only rushing for 88 yards.
Tigers running back C.J. Davidson rushed for 43 yards and a touchdown, while D.J. Howard rushed for 28 yards and a score. Mike Williams was their leading receiver in the loss with three catches for 88 yards. Starting quarterback Cole Stoudt was 16-for-29 in the game for 144 yards, no touchdowns and one interception.
