Klubnik leads No. 5 Clemson to 27-21 win over No. 14 ‘Cuse

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Freshman q...

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Freshman quarterback Cade Klubnik rallied No. 5 Clemson to two fourth-quarter touchdowns after replacing mistake-prone starter DJ Uiagalelei and the Tigers won their ACC-record setting 38th straight game at home, 27-21, over No. 14 Syracuse on Saturday.

Will Shipley ran for two touchdowns and a career-high 172 yards as the Tigers (8-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) won their 14th straight overall — but not without a big-time scare from the Orange (6-1, 3-1).

Uiagalelei was picked off twice and had a fumble Ja’Had Carter returned 90 yards for a touchdown as Clemson trailed 21-10 at the half.

The Tigers caught fire with the five-star Klubnik behind center. He led a 15-play, 80-yard series that ended with Phil Mafah’s 1-yard TD run on fourth-and-goal to cut the deficit to 21-16.

Other news

After a Syracuse punt, the Tigers and Klubnik got going again. He started with an 11-yard run before Shipley burst through the line for the go-ahead, 50-yard touchdown run for a 22-21 lead. Clemson went for two and Klubnik escaped one tackler in the backfield before finding Joseph Ngata for the final points.

NO. 2 OHIO STATE 54, IOWA 10

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) —C.J. Stroud overcame a slow start to throw four second-half touchdown passes and Ohio State’s defense took advantage of six Iowa turnovers to key the rout.

Tanner McCallister had two interceptions and Tommy Eichenberg had a pick-6 as Ohio State (7-0, 4-0 Big Ten) took advantage of an inept Iowa offense to consistently start drives with good field position.

Miyan Williams rushed for a first-half touchdown, and Stroud threw to Marvin Harrison, Emeka Egbuka, Julian Fleming and Mitch Rossi for second-half touchdowns.

Noah Ruggles contributed four field goals.

NO. 3 TENNESSEE 65, UT MARTIN 24

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tight end Princeton Fant ran for two touchdowns and threw for another to lead Tennessee over the FCS Skyhawks.

Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker completed 18 of 24 passes for 276 yards and three touchdowns. Jalin Hyatt caught seven passes for 174 yards and two scores for the Vols (7-0).

Dresser Winn threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns for UT Martin (4-3).

NO. 6 ALABAMA 30, NO. 24 MISSISSIPPI STATE 6

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — Bryce Young passed for 249 yards and two touchdowns and Alabama’s defense continued its domination of Mississippi State.

The Crimson Tide (7-1, 4-1 Southeastern Conference) rebounded from their first loss of the season, a 52-49 defeat to No. 3 Tennessee. Alabama defenders got a measure of redemption after giving up more points than any Alabama team since 1907.

Will Rogers and the Bulldogs (5-3, 3-3) couldn’t reach the end zone against Alabama until the final play. It was the first touchdown Mississippi State had managed against the Tide in three meetings under coach Mike Leach, getting outscored (120-15).

Rogers completed 30 of 60 passes for 231 yards. Jo’quavious Marks scored on a 1-yard run to end the game. Young completed 21 of 35 passes with a couple of long ones on scrambles, including a 31-yard TD to JoJo Earle.

LSU 45, NO. 7 MISSISSIPPI 20

BATON ROUGHE, La. (AP) — Jayden Daniels ran for three touchdowns and passed for two scores as LSU roared back from an early two-touchdown deficit to hand Mississippi its first loss this season.

The performance gave the dynamic Daniels the LSU record for touchdowns rushing by a quarterback in a season with nine. He finished with 258 yards passing and 121 yards rushing without a turnover.

Rebels running back Quinshon Judkins rushed for two TDs and helped Ole Miss to a 17-3 second-quarter lead.

LSU (6-2, 4-1 SEC) outscored Ole Miss (7-1, 3-1) 41-3 the remainder of the game and finished with 500 total yards to 404 for coach Lane Kiffin’s vaunted Mississippi offense.

NO. 8 TCU 38, NO. 17 KANSAS STATE 28

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Max Duggan threw for 280 yards with three touchdowns and Kendre Miller ran for 153 yards and two scores as TCU again rallied from a big early deficit to stay undefeated, beating Kansas State to take over sole possession of first place in the Big 12 Conference.

Duggan’s 55-yard strike to Quentin Johnston late in the third quarter put the Horned Frogs (7-0, 4-0 Big 12) ahead to stay.

The Frogs, with new coach Sonny Dykes, have won four consecutive games over ranked opponents. Three in a row was already a first in school history.

Kansas State (5-2, 3-1) had jumped out to a 28-10 lead when Will Howard threw for two touchdowns and ran for another after taking over for banged-up quarterback Adrian Martinez on its second drive. Deuce Vaughn’s 47-yard run for his first touchdown in five games capped the fourth consecutive TD drive for the K-State.

NO. 10 OREGON 45, NO. 9 UCLA 30

EUGENE, Ore. (AP) — Bo Nix threw for 283 yards and five touchdowns as Oregon handed UCLA its first loss of the season.

The win extended Oregon’s winning streak at Autzen Stadium to 23 games, matching a school record. The Ducks (6-1, 4-0 Pac-12) have won six straight since a season-opening loss to Georgia and are the lone remaining undefeated team in Pac-12 Conference play.

The loss snapped a nine-game overall winning streak for the Bruins, who have not won in Eugene since 2004. UCLA (6-1, 3-1) hasn’t defeated the Ducks since 2017.

Nix, a transfer from Auburn, has thrown for 17 touchdowns and rushed for eight this season. He completed 21 of 28 passes, eight to Troy Franklin for 132 yards and two scores.

Dorian Thompson-Robinson threw for 262 yards and two touchdowns and Zach Charbonnet rushed for 151 yards and a score for the Bruins.

NO. 11 OKLAHOMA STATE 41, TEXAS 34

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) — Spencer Sanders passed for 391 yards and two touchdowns, including the 41-yard game-winner to Bryson Green with just over three minutes remaining as Oklahoma State bounced back from a double-overtime loss to TCU the previous week.

Green’s had five catches for a career-high 133 yards for Oklahoma State (6-1, 3-1 Big 12).

The Oklahoma State defense intercepted Quin Ewers three times, two by Jason Taylor II, the other by Kendal Daniels in the final minute to end the Longhorns’ final threat.

Bijan Robinson ran for 140 yards and a touchdown and caught a 41-yard touchdown pass for Texas (5-3, 3-2). Ewers passed for 319 yards and two touchdowns.

NO. 13 WAKE FOREST 43, BOSTON COLLEGE 15

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Sam Hartman threw five touchdown passes and ran for another score as Wake Forest won its third straight.

All of Hartman’s touchdown throws — including two each to Taylor Morin and Jahmal Banks — were to receivers already in the end zone. He completed 25 of 40 passes for 313 yards for the Demon Deacons (6-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Phil Jurkovec threw for a touchdown and ran for another for Boston College (2-5, 1-4), which hasn’t defeated a top 25 opponent since 2018.

NO. 16 PENN STATE 45, MINNESOTA 17

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) — Sean Clifford threw four touchdown passes and Penn State’s defense forced seven punts in a win over Minnesota.

A week after the worst game of his six-year career, a smattering of boos rang out from the 107,000 fans clad all in white when Clifford was announced as the starting quarterback. By halftime, the Happy Valley crowd had changed its tone.

Clifford threw darts over the middle to tight ends Tyler Warren and Theo Johnson on back-to-back possessions in the second quarter to put Penn State (6-1, 3-1 Big Ten) up for good. The rout was on when he lofted a deep ball to Parker Washington for a 35-yard score on Penn State’s first possession of the second half.

Nick Singleton added two touchdown runs and Mitchell Tinsley caught another TD pass for the Nittany Lions. Clifford was 23 for 31 for 295 yards.

Penn State hosts No. 2 Ohio State on Saturday.

The Golden Gophers (4-3, 1-3) lost their third straight, this one amid difficult circumstances. Starting quarterback Tanner Morgan was ruled out with a head injury, leaving the offense to freshman Athan Kaliakmanis who completed just 9 of 22 passes for 175 yards.

NO. 21 CINCINNATI 29, SMU 27

DALLAS (AP) — Ryan Coe kicked a school-record five field goals, including a season-long 52-yarder and Cincinnati broke up a two-point play in the closing minutes to hold on.

Charles McClelland and Ryan Montgomery scored on runs of 76 yards and 1 yard for the Bearcats (6-1, 3-0 American), who won their 19th in a row against against American Athletic Conference opponents.

Tyler Lavine scored on a 1-yard plunge with 1:57 to pull SMU (3-4, 1-2) within two, but Preston Stone’s 2-point conversion pass intended for Roderick Daniels Jr. fell incomplete.

Stone, a redshirt freshman, replaced starter Tanner Mordecai, who left the game and the field late in the third quarter with an apparent injury.

NO. 25 TULANE 38, MEMPHIS 28

NEW ORLEANS (AP) —Michael Pratt threw for a touchdown and ran for another and Tyjae Spears ran for 125 yards and another score as Tulane celebrated its first Top 25 ranking since 1998.

The Green Wave (7-1, 4-0 American Athletic) scored on three of their first four possessions and took a 35-0 lead into the second half before the Tigers rallied.

Seth Henigan had 257 of his 312 passing yards in the second half for the Tigers (4-4, 2-3), finishing with three touchdowns and two interceptions. Eddie Lewis caught two touchdown passes, finishing with three receptions for 94 yards.

Cade Klubnik’s ACC title performance adds a ‘what if’ to Clemson football season

CHARLOTTE — Dabo Swinney made a call to Cade Klubnik last Sunday and explained to his true freshman quarterback how he planned to use him during the upcoming ...

CHARLOTTE — Dabo Swinney made a call to Cade Klubnik last Sunday and explained to his true freshman quarterback how he planned to use him during the upcoming ACC championship game against North Carolina.

Klubnik would enter Saturday’s contest in the third series, regardless of the play of starter DJ Uiagalelei, “no matter what,” the Clemson coach said postgame.

From the time he replaced the sputtering Uiagalelei, Klubnik was electric, engineering three straight touchdown drives on his way to an MVP performance during the Tigers’ 39-10 dominating win. He started the game with 10 straight completions and finished 20 of 24 for 279 yards with a pair of touchdowns. Heck, he even led the team in rushing.

FUTURE OF THE ACC:Clemson's Cade Klubnik vs UNC's Drake Maye is the future of ACC football

Swinney now must wonder if he should’ve made that call sooner — a week earlier to be exact. Uiagalelei didn’t have what it took to win in last week’s 31-30 loss to rival South Carolina, a defeat that single-handedly ended a 40-game home win streak and buried Clemson’s chances of making the College Football Playoff. Struggles have been synonymous with Uiagalelei's quarterback tenure, but Swinney has always been his greatest defender.

“I got a lot of regrets from the South Carolina game,” Swinney said. “But DJ is not why we lost. But, you know, hindsight is always 20/20. There are a lot of things we wish we could’ve done over.”

Salvation may have been sitting on the sideline, even if he won’t admit it.

Klubnik, a former five-star recruit from Texas, may not have shined in his opportunities this season, but they were, at best, limited. He threw one pass, an interception, in a 35-14 loss to Notre Dame. He threw a season-high five passes against Louisiana Tech. He did convert an impressive two-point conversion during a comeback win against Syracuse.

But as Swinney noted after the freshman’s performance against UNC, Klubnik has never lost a game as a starter: winning three state titles in high school and entering Clemson with the highest of expectations. Swinney only has himself to blame for not trusting a proven winner.

Last week’s loss was made worse by how the college football Red Sea seemed to part for Clemson this week. The Tigers had been ranked No. 8 in the CFP rankings and would’ve jumped LSU, Alabama and maybe even Ohio State with a win. USC’s loss to Utah in the Pac-12 championship, it seems, would’ve allowed them to slip into the CFP for the sixth time.

Instead, Swinney found himself settling for a seventh ACC title in eight years. That's an acceptable prize for most, but a reminder of failed expectations for Clemson.

“It’s all about what is next for us,” Swinney said.

What’s next is the Orange Bowl. What’s next is Klubnik’s first career start, which Swinney confirmed early Sunday morning. What’s left is the question that will loom over the rest of this season.

What if?

MIAMI — Clemson freshman Cade Klubnik had a chance to take over as the starting quarterback in an early November game at Notre Dame.

Coaches had a hunch it would be the springboard to launch Klubnik’s career.

That idea was quickly squashed. It lasted two plays. Klubnik, in for the struggling DJ Uiagalelei, threw an interception and was back on the sideline. Klubnik got 13 snaps in the next two games combined and didn’t play at all in the regular-season finale against South Carolina.

He didn’t fail on his next big chance, however, coming in to guide Clemson (11-2) to the ACC championship, 39-10, against North Carolina. Uiagalelei is gone, already at Oregon State, and Klubnik will start Friday (8 p.m., ESPN) against Tennessee (10-2) in the Orange Bowl.

Notre Dame and North Carolina happened less than a month apart. Did Klubnik really take that much of a leap?

EARLY SIGNS:Unpacking Clemson football’s 2022 recruiting class – and how good it can be

“He matured as a player throughout the year,” Clemson offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter said Tuesday. “And he went through some ups and downs as a young player. There were some really good things that he did in the season and there were some things that a lot of freshmen do. It allowed us to be a little patient with him, too, and not just throw him into the fire.

“In the ACC championship game, it was like, ‘Hey, let’s give him an opportunity. He’s showed it in practice and he’s developed as a player.' So, I think the time was right for what we had to do.”

Klubnik shredded the 116th-ranked defense of North Carolina, completing 20 of 24 passes for 279 yards and a touchdown while also running for 30 yards and a score. Tennessee’s defense, ranked No. 86, shut out Vanderbilt in its regular-season finale but allowed 67 points the week before against South Carolina.

“Cade is super-ready for this moment,” Clemson senior offensive lineman Jordan McFadden said. “He got the opportunity against North Carolina and made the most of it. Nothing is too overwhelming for him. He’s such a calm, cool, relaxed guy. He’s confident as well. He’s ready for this moment. I’m excited to see what he can do Friday night.”

“He’s had this in him since he was a boy. He was built for moments like this,” Clemson freshman wide receiver Antonio Williams said. “He showed it in the last game, the ACC championship, and I think he’ll show it again in the Orange Bowl.”

Uiagalelei had to be rescued against Syracuse and Klubnik rallied the Tigers to victory at Memorial Stadium. Notre Dame was different. He came in with Clemson at its own 8-yard line, backed up in a corner of a loud and legendary stadium.

“He just made a mistake down there at the goal line,” Streeter said. “It was a tough situation.”

“I didn’t really know what was going to happen after that game or in that game,” Klubnik said. “DJ was starting. I just kind of went in being ready like every other game. Just staying ready. Obviously, it didn’t go the way the whole team wanted. But it is what it is. There are ups and downs in the game of football just like life. You bounce back and you continue to go on from there.

“... It was a little bit hard for the next couple weeks, but I just trusted the coaches. They know what they're doing.”

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — DJ Uiagalelei tapped backup Cade Klubnik on the helmet and gave him a final piece of advice before the freshman headed to the field with No. 5 Clemson down 21-10 in the third quarter.

“You’re ready for this,” Uiagalelei said.

Clemson’s starter was right. Klubnik, the five-star newcomer, led the fifth-ranked Tigers to two fourth-quarter touchdowns in a 27-21 win over No. 14 Syracuse on Saturday.

Will Shipley scored twice on the ground, including the go-ahead 50-yard TD run with less than 12 minutes to go. Shipley also had a career-high 172 yards rushing.

Clemson (8-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) r allied from 14-points down in the first half for its 14th straight win overall, an ACC-record setting 38th straight home victory, and maintained control of the ACC Atlantic Division as the league’s last unbeaten.

And it likely wouldn’t have happened without Klubnik’s steady hand in the final 20 minutes.

Uiagalelei had his worst game of the season with two interceptions — he had two in the first seven games — and a fumble that Syracuse (6-1, 3-1) returned for a 90-yard scoop and score as the Tigers fell behind 21-7.

Klubnik’s spark was immediate. He led a 15-play, 80-yard drive finished by Phil Mafah’s 1-yard bull rush.

After a Syracuse punt, Klubnik opened the next series with an 11-yard run before Shipley’s game winner to go up 22-21 that sent him into the stands with his own Lambeau Leap. The Tigers went for two as Klubnik escaped a defender in the backfield, rolled right and found Joseph Ngata for the conversion.

Klubnik punched the air and Death Valley erupted in a frenzy.

“Just excited to get my moment,” Klubnik said. “It was awesome — such a great environment today.”

Will there be more ahead this year? Perhaps not.

“As far as DJ, DJ’s our starter, DJ’s our leader,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “Nothing’s changed there.”

Klubnik’s chance came because the Orange pressured Uiagalelei into mistakes. Safety Ja’Had Carter had Syracuse’s first interception, then picked up the loose ball Uiagalelei dropped and ran uncontested for a score.

When Uiagalelei threw his second pick on an off-target pass, Swinney made the change.

Uiagalelei understood, telling offensive coordinator Brandon Streeter he just wanted to win.

“It was a bad day,” Uiagalelei said. “There were mistakes I made, things I wish I had back.”

Clemson held Syracuse to 119 yards and no points the final two quarters. Shrader took Syracuse to the Clemson 30 with 32 seconds left but was picked off by safety R.J. Mickens on his fnal throw.

Shrader passed for a touchdown and rushed for another. He finished 18 of 26 passing for 167 yards.

“This is the first time we’ve tasted defeat and I want the taste out of my mouth and be back on the right side of it,” Syracuse coach Dino Babers said.

Klubnik’s performance was eerily similar to Clemson’s last close call at home against Syracuse in 2018 when Chase Brice — he of the Appalachian State Hail Mary win this season — came in for injured starter Trevor Lawrence and led a 94-yard fourth-quarter scoring drive in the final minute for a 27-23 win.

THE TAKEAWAY

Syracuse: It was certainly a tale of two halves for the Orange, who looked unstoppable and on a mission in the first 30 minutes before caving to the Tigers. Syracuse also made its share of mistakes with several costly penalties down the stretch contributing to Clemson’s win.

Clemson: Quarterback controversy? Don’t be so certain. Fans were hopeful Klubnik would take over for Uiagalelei when the season began after he struggled at times in 2021. While Klubnik was essential to beating Syracuse, Clemson is still Uiagalelei’s team going forward.

POLL IMPLICATIONS

Expect Clemson to hold steady, although it has lost ground in the rankings twice before this season after wins. Syracuse will likely slip a few spots, but should remain in the Top 25.

INJURY LIST

Clemson linebacker Barrett Carter, third on the team with 33 tackles, missed the game due to a concussion. He’s the latest starter to miss time this season, including defensive linemen Xavier Thomas, Bryan Bresee and Tyler Davis. For Syracuse, top cornerback Garrett Williams did not play after getting hurt against North Carolina State last week. Williams is third on Syracuse with 32 tackles.

UP NEXT

Syracuse returns to the Dome to play Notre Dame on Saturday.

Clemson has the week off before heading to Notre Dame on Nov. 5.

LAKE CITY, S.C. (WPDE) — The Lake City Community Hospital is closing its doors after 56 years which will impact about 212 jobs, according to officials.

The hospital's last day is Friday.

It's closing largely in part to the opening of MUSC's new Black River Medical Facility in the Cades community between Lake City and Kingstree.

The hospital features 25 licensed inpatient beds, fully operating and diagnostic services, a 16-bay emergency department, and the latest capabilities in telehealth. The project represents MUSC’s ongoing effort to extend its mission to communities and citizens across the state.

Black River Medical Center is scheduled to be open in January of 2023.

Officials said of the 212 people losing their jobs, 80% of them will be offered jobs at the MUSC facilities. Not 75 of them as officials previously stated.

Some of them have retired and found other jobs and a few are now having to look for work.

NEW: Nearly 1.8M South Carolinians to travel for Christmas: AAA

Hannah Powell and Beth Coe have worked at Lake City Community Hospital for 10 years combined and said they the closing is bittersweet.

They said the hospital is truly a community facility.

“A lot of the community, some actually walk here. For the ones that don’t have transportation. Now being all the way down at Cades, they are going to have a further walk. If they are even able to get there. I think it is going to be a bigger impact to the community than what the community maybe realizes at this point,” said Coe.

Meanwhile, Powell is staying optimistic about what this means for the community.

“It is bittersweet. But it’s knowing that one door opens. It’s always been Lake City. But I am very excited to see what’s gonna happen at the MUSC Black River. It’s more opportunity. It’s bringing more care to a rural area," said Powell.

Emily Davis has worked as a nurse at the facility for 50 years. Davis said it breaks her heart that they're closing.

"Of course, it's a shame that we are closing. We're gonna miss it. We are going to miss our family. We are a family. And I hope that that family atmosphere, is going to be displayed down there at the new hospital," said Davis.

Lessa Infinger has worked at the hospital in human resources for 37 years.

Infinger said it's really tough for hospitals in rural communities.

"This has been my life for 37 years. And I know no different than this. But, with small rural hospitals being bought out or going bankrupt, I know that this is the best thing for our community," said Infinger.

The American Hospital Association released a report in September "highlighting the variety of causes that resulted in 136 rural hospital closures from 2010 to 2021, and a record 19 closures in 2020 alone. These include many longstanding pressures, such as low reimbursement, staffing shortages, low patient volume and regulatory barriers, as well as the continued financial challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. Recently, expenses for labor, drugs, supplies and equipment have also increased dramatically, ultimately causing difficulties in maintaining access to care for people in rural communities."

The key finding of the reports state the following:

Many people said they hate for the Lake City Community Hospital to permanently close its doors, however, are excited about the level of care that Black River Medical Center can now provide for the community.

Officials said the hospital in Williamsburg County will close by mid-January due to the new facility.
