CLEMSON, S.C. -- Wake Forest forced four turnovers, but it was not enough as No. 1-ranked Clemson earned a 33-13 victory inside Memorial Stadium on Saturday evening.
Brad Watson intercepted his second pass of the season, while Hunter Williams and Chris Calhoun each recorded the first of their careers. Teddy Matthews also recovered a fumble on special teams for Wake Forest (3-8, 1-6).
But Clemson (11-0, 8-0 ACC) compiled 552 total yards on offense and put up 20 first-quarter points en route to the victory.
Deshaun Watson was part of all four of the Tigers' touchdowns. He scored on a 3-yard run early in the first quarter, then found Charone Peake and Deon Cain on passes of 44 and 11 yards, respectively.
The Demon Deacons got on the board after Williams returned his interception to the Clemson 11-yard-line, with Kendall Hinton scrambling for an 8-yard touchdown rush, his seventh of 2015.
Clemson scored the next 13 points to take a 33-7 lead. First, Watson connected with Germone Hopper on a 47-yard completion. Then, Greg Huegel connected on field goals of 40 and 36 yards.
Wake Forest closed out the scoring in the fourth quarter, when Hinton found Cortez Lewis streaking down the right sideline for a 30-yard touchdown.
The Deacs and Tigers each scored 13 points after the conclusion of the first quarter.
Brandon Chubb led the defense with 11 tackles, posting his 11th-career double-digit tackle game, and his fifth of this season.
