Clemson Football, Clemson, SC – (AP) Kyle Parker threw for 114 yards and two touchdowns in four possessions to lead Clemson to a 58-21 victory over Presbyterian on Saturday.

After five offensive plays, the Tigers (2-0) led 14-0 against Presbyterian undersized.

In the second quarter, Daniel Barnes, a broker who did not play last week 35-10 romps over North Texas was to assume the load on a touchdown drive that ended with him scoring on a shovel pass 11 yards.

Clemson is now 24-0 against Football Championship Subdivision opponents, all victories by 10 points or more. Presbyterian (0-2) is on a streak of 16 games.

Now the schedule gets tougher for the Tigers, who travel to 21 ยบ Auburn next weekend.

The owners did not play much time for Clemson, who played 57 players for the end of the first quarter.

Parker was out for the end of the first quarter, although it took the start of the second half. But the coaches took him out for good after that threw three incompletions and took a hard hit. Tigers runners up, Jamie Harper and Andre Ellington, was only six developed between them.

Backup quarterback Tajh Boyd went 4-for-9 for 87 yards and two touchdowns, including a score by land. Boyd may have had the game’s success, his helmet flying almost 20 yards before Matthew Roper went down after throwing his one interception.

Barnes, a senior who has not won a letter, ran for 79 yards on 11 carries, while the second stringer Roderick McDowell led the Tigers with 85 yards.

Ten Clemson players out of the 11 team finish. The final step was a 1-yard launch quarterbacks Donny McElveen high to senior fullback Kasey Nobles. It was the first step and the completion of both players in their careers.

The highlights of the blue hose did not happen until the game got out of hand. Miley Brandon Michael Ruff found wide open for a 4-yard touchdown late in the third quarter, making the couple of hundreds of fans dressed in blue to go wild and reducing the lead to 52-7 Clemson. Ruff also reached a 20-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter from backup quarterback Gary Myron.

Miley was 11-for-22 for 61 yards, Gary was 6-of-11 for 78 yards and was the leading rusher of the blue hose with 53 yards on seven carries.

Equipment used for regular opponents in the first half of the 20th century, but Saturday was the first time he had met in 53 years. The series was uneven at the time too. Clemson won 14 in a row, culminating with a 66-0 victory in 1957.
