CLEMSON – There were plenty of questions surrounding the health of middle linebacker Leroy Hill and whether or not he’d be able to play Saturday.

Well, those were answered rather quickly.

Hill finished with six tackles, five of which were solo, including a sack and another tackle for a loss.

The Tigers are now 4-0 in overtime in its history and 3-0 under coach Tommy Bowden. Also, quarterback Charlie Whitehurst is the first quarterback in school history to win two overtime games.

With the evacuation of Florida due to Hurricane Frances, the Clemson athletic department allowed anyone with a Florida driver’s license to get in the game for free.

Some 750 tickets were given away free to those fleeing the hurricane.

Justin Miller recorded his second-career punt return for a touchdown at the end of the first quarter.

By doing so, he tied a school record. It was also the second consecutive home game in which the Tigers have scored on a punt return. They did it last year against Duke in the home finale.

The injuries to Clemson were at a minimum Saturday as defensive tackle Eric Coleman’s sprained knee and linebacker Anthony Waters played the second half with a broken hand.

Chansi Stuckey’s blocked punt was the first blocked punt since Tye Hill did it in the 2002 Tangerine Bowl. … Whitehurst’s first completion to somebody other than Stuckey or Airese Currie came with six minutes left in the third quarter.
