Clemson QB Kelly Bryant leaves game vs. Wake Forest with injury

Clemson is 6-0 on the season and ranked No. 2 in the country.

Trailing 3-0 late in the first quarter, TCU booted away its third punt of the day but was gifted the ball right back when a Mountaineer player blocked a TCU defender into West Virginia punt returner Jovanni Stewart, which TCU's Vernon Scott recovered at the West Virginia 33-yard line. He was clearly in pain as he tried to walk on the sideline.

With the win over Wake Forest, head coach Dabo Swinney's team extended its winning streak to eleven straight games - the fifth-longest streak in school history. He was 21-of-29 for 200 yards with one touchdown and one interception.

Zerrick Cooper and Hunter Johnson saw action after Bryant left the game.

On Sunday, Swinney was asked by the media about Bryant's status and said he expects the junior to play against Syracuse.

The Tigers jumped in front of the Demon Deacons early and remained there for the game. The test the Demon Deacons provided Clemson portends more tough games. That was a result they felt they let get away. "And I said from the beginning, you guys make a big deal of the quarterback competition, I know we'd need two".

MI scored its touchdown midway through the third quarter on Khalid Hill's 1-yard run to cut it to 14-10.

Replays showed his left ankle was bent back under a diving Wake Forest defender. But he was largely ineffective, going 2-for-6 for 16 yards. Johnson, a five-star recruit, threw a 13-yard touchdown pass to tight end Cannon Smith in the fourth quarter.

Wake Forest fell to 0-22 against opponents who entered 5-0 or better.

With Hinton in and Wolford out, Clawson said there are a few more plays for designed quarterback runs.

O'DANIEL'S RUN: Senior linebacker Dorian O'Daniel is cramming years of potential into his fifth season.

The Wolverines opened with a 16-play, 64-yard drive that took almost 7 minutes off the clock, but they had to settle for a field goal and a 3-0 lead. The Deacons return to action October 21 at Georgia Tech, which is allowing an Atlantic Coast Conference-best 260 yards per game on defense. "We'll see how it goes".
