CLEMSON, S. Dmitry Kulikov Jets Jersey .C. -- Its time for No. 3 Clemsons second showdown this season. And this one is even bigger than the first. Six weeks after defeating then fifth-ranked Georgia to start the season, the Tigers and Tajh Boyd put together a fourth-quarter comeback to defeat Boston College that kept them on course for next weeks Atlantic Coast Conference contest with No. 6 Florida State. "Ill definitely be watching," Boston College receiver Alex Amidon said. Amidon and the Eagles (3-3, 1-2 ACC) nearly spoiled the party, keeping the Tigers out of synch offensively and using big plays to carry a 14-10 lead into the final period. Thats when the Tigers (6-0, 4-0) fought back, Boyds 6-yard TD run with 13:44 left putting them ahead for good. National sack leader Vic Beasley sealed things a few moments later when he scooped up Chase Rettigs fumble and took it 13 yards for a touchdown. The Boston College quarterback coughed up the ball after a big hit by linebacker Tony Steward. Clemson held on to start 6-0 for the second time in three years. "If you want to be a good team, you have to win games like this," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. "We kept fighting and overcame mistakes." The Tigers most likely wont wriggle of the hook should they repeat the errors against the well-rested Seminoles (5-0), who had Saturday free and come off a 63-0 victory over Maryland in their last game. Boyd also had a touchdown pass and finished with 334 yards passing to become the schools all-time leader in passing yards, surpassing Charlie Whitehurst. Boyd chose to focus on Clemson handling adversity and succeeding instead of a near defeat. "Ive been in that situation plenty of times," he said. "Youve got to go back, reflect on it and youve got to lead." Boyd said hell remind the Tigers of whats at stake this week, the attention that will be on Death Valley and how the players must prepare to succeed as they did against Georgia in a 38-35 victory back on Aug. 31. "Weve got some great capabilities," he said. "Weve got to keep making adjustments so we can continue to improve." Sammy Watkins had seven receptions for 101 yards, his fourth game over the century mark this season and 11th in his career. He scored on a 48-yard touchdown grab that gave the Tigers their first lead of the game at 10-7. But it was Clemsons oft-maligned defence -- remember when the Tigers gave up 70 points in the Orange Bowl two years ago? -- that turned things around in this one. Eagles tailback Andre Williams, who came in the nations top rusher, was held to fewer than 3 yards a carry with 70 total. He had gained a career-best 263 a week ago in Boston Colleges win over Army. Boston College finished with 286 yards on offence, 162 of those coming on its two TD drives. Its the fifth straight game Clemson held an opponent to 14 points or less. "We hear a lot about our offence, but we just want to be the strength of the team," Beasley said. Clemson put its past two opponents in Wake Forest and Syracuse away by halftime, leading 35-7 at the break and cruising to sizeable victories. The Tigers tried that formula again in this one, reaching the BC 6 before kicker Chandler Catanzaro ended a string of 28 straight field goals inside 48 yards as he missed from 25 yards away. It was only the start of the Tigers execution problems. Two series later, Zac Brooks fumbled at the end of what wouldve been a first down and Eagles linebacker Steele Divitto recovered. After driving 68 yards to the Boston College 28, Watkins airmailed a halfback pass over wide open Adam Humphries. Two plays later, holder Corbin Jenkins couldnt get the snap down and the Tigers again left without points. Rod McDowell had Clemsons second fumble of the half a series later, then came up shy on fourth-and-6 as Clemson passed up a long field goal try the next time it had the ball. The Tigers finally broke through on the halfs last play, Catanzaro nailing a 35-yard field goal as time ran out to trail the Eagles 7-3 at the break. Clemsons struggles continued into the second half. The crowd of 77,506 relaxed some when Watkins took in his 48-yard catch along the right sidelines for a touchdown to put Clemson on top 10-7. But BC answered one play later on Rettigs 69-yard TD toss to Amidon. The nervousness didnt leave for good until after Beasley bounded in with the loose ball for a double-digit lead. "We did some really good things and some really bad things," said first-year Boston College coach Steve Addazio. "If we can keep working and keep believing, then good things will happen."

PETERSBURG, Fla. http://www.jetsauthentic.com/authentic-laurie-boschman-jets-jersey/ . -- The Guelph Storm are moving on to the Western Conference final after defeating the London Knights 5-4 on Friday in Ontario Hockey League playoff action. PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Trail Blazers who got off to such a strong start this season re-emerged against Washington Wizards. "The ball was moving. It was a lot of fun to be out there," Wesley Matthews said. "Thats how we play. Thats how we got on a roll, thats how we got to be one of the hottest teams." Matthews matched his season high with 28 points, including four 3-pointers, and the Portland defeated the Wizards 116-103 on Thursday night. Damian Lillard added 23 points and 10 assists for the Blazers, who are still playing without injured All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge. Portland (45-24) remained in fifth place in the Western Conference with three victories in their last four games after slumping with a four-game losing streak. The Wizards (35-33) have lost two straight to open four-game swing against the Western Conference while they vie for a playoff spot in the East to end a five-year absence. Washington currently sits sixth in their conference. John Wall had 24 points and 14 assists for Washington, which trailed by as many as 17 points in the second half. "They are a team that gets hot from time to time," Wall said. "And they got hot and made some contested shots, they rotated the ball and guys knocked down their shots." Portland played small in Aldridges absence and finished with 32 assists on 41 field goals. " I think right now were just moving the ball really well," Lillard said. "And when youre moving the ball, you put yourself in position to make shots." Wizards centre Marcin Gortat was scratched from the lineup just before the game because of a lower back strain. It was the first game hes missed this season. Gortat, who hurt his back during pregame warmups and left the court wincing, is averaging 12.8 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. In Washingtons 117-111 overtime loss at Sacramento on Tuesday, Gortat had 19 points and 14 rebounds. The Wizards started Kevin Seraphin in his place. The Wizards are still without forward Nene, who missed his 12th gram because of a sprained left MCL. "Things arent going our way right now,," Wall said. Nikolaj Ehlers Jets Jersey. "Some guys are down, but there are no excuses. We know we should be 1-1 on this trip right now. Two more games left to put this one behind us. Win the next two, go home even." The Blazers, who opened the season 22-4 and rose to the top of the standings, played without Aldridge for the fourth straight game because of a lower back contusion. He is expected to return when the Blazers play at Charlotte on Saturday. They got a scare against the Wizards when reserve guard Will Barton, who has been a spark off the bench this season, appeared to injure his right arm and left the game for a time. In the second half he wore a brace on his elbow. The Blazers jumped out to a 19-14 lead, but the Wizards answered with a 14-4 run to lead 28-23 after the first quarter. Bradley Beals layup extended the lead to 35-27. The Wizards stayed in front, going up 45-39 on former Blazer Martell Websters dunk. But Lillard dunked with less than a minute to go in the half and Robin Lopez added a layup to tie the game at 51. Lillard added a pair of free throws for a 53-51 Blazers lead at the break. Portland opened the third quarter with an 11-3 run, including 3-pointers from Lillard, Dorell Wright and Matthews, to stretch the lead to 64-53. The Blazers had six 3s in the quarter to head into the final period with an 86-73 lead. Bartons pass between the legs of Drew Gooden was snagged by Thomas Robinson for the jam to make it 89-73.
