SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) DJ Uiagalelei passed for 181 yards and one touchdown, Kobe Pace rushed for 76 yards and another score, and Clemson held off Syracuse 17-14 on Friday night.
Clemson (4-2, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), coming off a bye week, played its first game as a team not ranked by the AP since Nov. 22, 2014, a 28-0 win against Georgia State, and held on for the victory after Syracuse place-kicker Andre Szymt missed a 48-yard field goal attempt with 38 seconds left.
"Until our offense grows up a little bit. We've got to find a way to win," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. "Four one-possession games in a row, if that's who we are, that's who we are. We're just going to keep grinding."
