, S.C. (AP) - Tajh Boyd threw for 310 yards and three touchdown passes, Sammy Watkins had a 58-yard touchdown run in his season debut and No. 11 Clemsonwon its 30th straight over Furman, 41-7, on Saturday.

 

Andre Ellington added a pair of rushing touchdowns for the Tigers (3-0).

 

Watkins scored in the first quarter after taking an inside handoff from Boyd and rushing past the right side of Furman's defense. The All-American sophomore receiver spent the past two games on the sideline, suspended for a May drug arrest. He finished with four catches for 52 yards.

 

Boyd's three scoring throws gave him 43 for his career, second all time at

Clemson and just six behind the record held by Charlie Whitehurst.

 

Furman of the Football Championship Subdivision opened 0-3 for the first time since 1979.
