Uiagalelei starts strong as Clemson leads Furman

·1 min read

Clemson scored on their first drive Saturday against Furman in a much needed strong start for the Tigers.

Starting quarterback DJ Uiagalelei looked very comfortable under center to start the game, marching the Tigers downfield on a seven-play, 75-yard drive with Will Shipley capping off the drive with a one-yard touchdown run.

The junior quarterback was 3-3 on the drive with 67-yards connecting on a deep ball to wide receiver Beaux Collins for a 40-yard play on his second pass of the game. Moments after, he found wide receiver Joseph Ngata for a 26-yard pitch and catch that set up the Shipley score.

The Tigers lead the Paladins 7-0 with 11:46 left in the first quarter.
