No. 4 Clemson avoids upset scare, pulls away to beat Georgia Tech 41-10

Sep 6, 2022

If you were expecting some dramatic change from the No. 4 Clemson offense compared to last season, you came away a bit disappointed on Monday night.

Sure, Clemson pulled away and beat Georgia Tech 41-10 to start the season 1-0, but a lot of the same issues that plagued the Tigers in 2021 were on display again in this one.

The play-calling was unimaginative, the offensive line was leaky, the receivers struggled getting separation (and just catching the ball at times) and the play of quarterback DJ Uiagalalei was up-and-down. If it wasn’t for the stellar play of the Clemson defense and a couple of blocked punts, this game would have been much closer than the final score indicates.

And it was already pretty close. Georgia Tech, a team with nine wins combined over the past three seasons, cut Clemson’s lead to 14-10 midway through the third quarter.
