as you said. mike williams made a lot of plays in the game. 12 catches, over 180 yards. look at the effort. never give up on the play. give your defense a place to stand. >> todd: that just jumps out to me. where he came from, tracking him down and how important it is in the game, not only as a coach and teammate you have a ton of respect. the nfl scouts effort he had on that play and the team player he is week in and week out. >> steve: even with it, it was a 70-yard return. >> brian: it does not overshadow that mistake. three interceptions now for watson. >> steve: second in the red zone. >> brian: 13 on the season and a golden opportunity for the offense of pitt. >> steve: here's peterman.
matthews, the true freshman out of clairton, p.a. >> brian: where has conner gone? the defense of climson has stood up in the fourth quarter. you cannot hand it to him and expect to run it between the tackles right now. you have soft edges when you use conner on the perimeter. couldn't be surprised if they try it again. >> steve: second down and ten. peterman. too high. scott orndoff, all 6'5" of him went up, and orndoff couldn't bring it down becomes you mentioned, 6'6", treat him like a basketball player. give him a chance to go up and make a play.
>> steve: field goal doesn't help pitt the way it would have clemson apartment the other end. 5:30 to go, fourth quarter. third and ten. peterman lost one down the sideline. the timing off for jester weah but there is a flag. >> brian: wallace the coverage. >> referee: holding defense number 12. 10-yard penalty, first down. >> steve: let's take a look. i didn't see it. >> brian: all-out blitz. the safety came. and wallace has man to man. that's -- oh, i don't see it, steve. i don't know what to tell you.
that is one you pick up and put it in your pocket. gives them a fresh set of downs. here's conner. turns the corner. inside the 10, 5, touchdown! james conner and pittsburgh is a two-point conversion away from tying the game. >> brian: we talked about that stiff-arm. it is deadly. you come up to tackle james conner on the perimeter, you have got to go low. because if he left hand, it's over. see, change the ball right there. daniel who had him earlier in the game and he will willed his way in the end zone. now you have to go for two. >> steve: that interception, the key play of a 70-yard return. setting this up.

>> brian: you want me summarize this game? clemson should be winning by two touchdowns. there with two penalties. the personal foul on boulware which pitt scored a touch. that was a phantom call. that is 14 points in the game that should have gone to clemson. traming by two, pittsburgh is. with 5:17 left. there is artavis scott.
update. >> we have a final between the hedges. sean white intercepted by smith, and georgia added two field goals to top auburn 13-7 and alabama clinches the s.e.c. west. coming up, jabrill peppers and number three michigan staking on iowa. you can also see it live on watch espn. back to you guys. >> bob: wow, seven points for that game? >> steve: amazing. >> brian: that looked like the auburn team that played clemson earlier in the season. >> steve: always fun to watch jabrill peppers. scott on the receiving end there. pitt has been charged with no penalties so far this half. we will watch nar in the offensive series for clemson. better than 81,000 on hand here
does it count as a night game now? i have always had it on my bucket list to do a night game here hat death valley. >> brian: absolutely, can daylight savings. >> steve: first down yardage. >> brian: what pat narduzzi has left in the play sheet, whatever energy they have, they have to find some way to stop this team on this drive. other wise, this game could be over. >> steve: throwing, completing, deon cain, a spin move for a first down. despeet the undefeated record, the third time clemson has given up over 30 points, gave up 36 to louisville, 34 to florida state. of course 40 here to pitt.
knee down and hardly enough time replay it. may have gotten it in. >> referee: ruling on the field is a catch. previous play is under review. >> steve: this is a mind boggling statistic. clemson has 32 first downs in the game. none via the game. not one of the first downs has have on a r penalty. >> brian: that's pretty clear, the knee down. it's three to run pass to run right now. >> steve: don't have to be
>> brian: another first down, catches the ball there. >> steve: the 44. >> brian: yeah. our replay official tonight is joe ryder. >> steve: veteran of the 82nd airborne. >> brian: we salute him today. he hasn't had any issues tonight. >> steve: no. >> brian: it's been on the field. >> steve: i have no problem with good old joe there. from evans dale, indiana, hometown of my old man. actually went to high school with my uncle. i was talking to him before the game and he said it's harder now to do this job, replay official, than it ever has been.
targeting at length. and now, the acc, they have an opportunity to review back in greeningboro. and makes it a little more difficult. >> referee: after review, the receiver's knee was down when the ball was possessed. that will second and seven. >> steve: that is the easiest one they had. >> brian: sometimes it will take greensboro and the s.e.c. is doing it more so. big ten is dabbling with it, the remote sites. fy was a betting man, i would say that go for it in all directions. >> steve: mission control
watson off the play fake. a little behind by mike williams and will bring up third down. >> brian: third and two, here it is. there is your opportunity to get off the field. narduzzi, why not sell out? sell out, try to make a play. and ejuan price hasn't made a lot of plays in this game. don't just give it to him on the outside. i think narduz a time-out. >> referee: time-out pittsburgh. their first time-out of the half. full time-out. >> steve: too big a play. too big a play. good spot for a time-out. think about how they will play the third and two when we come back. chocolate. levian chocolate diamonds. save up to 20% on select levian styles at kay, the number-one jewelry store... ...in america. ? every kiss begins with kay. ? you said you wanted to feel better about your cereal.

i call it blimpworthy. ? stfd levy, griese, plk shay. two point game. number two team in the land, clem clemson on their home field against pitt. clemson has 44 straight victories over unranked opponents. out of the pitt time-out. third and two. maybe the ball game on this play. watson to throw. and it's caught. who else? mike williams. first down.
wanted a penalty on top of it. it's just, one guy's bigger than the other. good in basketball position and box him out. right on his chest. 6'3", 225 and maddox over the top and dabo wanted a penalty on top of it. but you got the first down, coach. be happy with it. >> steve: and on first and ten, they will hand off to wayne he will lose a yard. on the last pass play that is significant for deshaun watson. he is not just breaking clemson records today. he just broke stephen morris' acc passing record. morris from miami threw for 566 yards back in 2012 against nc state. and deshaun watson now, 570, a new acc record.
live. coming out of two minutes to play. >> brian: seat belt play clock under five seconds. and narduzzi will take a time-out. >> steve: here they come. watson to throw. williams, the catch. >> brian: narduzzi is not taking the time-out. he has two of them. you can stop the clock. >> todd: you have to call a time-out here. >> steve: you can stop the clock on offense when you have the you have time-outs. i don't understand. >> brian: now it's too late. already waisted all that time. >> steve: this game ticking away from pitt. >> brian: you have to anticipate that your defense is going to get the stop here. you just lost 45 seconds. i think clemson's going to let it run down and call a time-out.
>> steve: following the cal/washington state game on espn, stay tuned for "sportscenter" at night, john anderson and lisa kerney. a busy night in spots, "sportscenter" at night after college football on espn. also available streaming live on the espn app and watch espn. on this veterans day weekend. i want to saw thank you very much not just for for our country. these are all the veterans on our crew. marty, tom, jim, joel, b.z. helping us out. >> brian: look at joel's army t-shirt. i like that. they are flot faring very well against the fighting irish, i heard. this is it, clemson can seal it
one yard, you can hear dabo in the huddle. one yard wins it. >> steve: there's the pitch. didn't get it. didn't get there. >> brian: no, he didn't get there. >> steve: and pittsburgh will take a time-out. this play's out now. >> brian: it's a two-point game still. what does dabo swinney decide attempt a field goal, go for it, punt? >> todd: i think i would punt. the way your defense has given up big plays. they only need a field goal to win. i would try to pin them. >> brian: i don't disagree with you there. the last thing i would do is try
possibly block and run it out. no, that's out. the the question, looks like dabo swi swinney's going to go for it. >> todd: maybe sure it's a run pass option. >> brian: if your shoulder's hurt, ball security is an issue and he hasn't been there in the mesh at all in the game. i up in the shotgun, it will be a pooch punt. >> steve: clemson will take a time-out. 62 seconds left for number two clemson. clemson has found themselves in a lot of games, won five of the first eight by seven points or
away. clemson hangs on. >> saves the game for clemson. >> intercepted by marcus edmond and that will end the ball game. >> tigers are going to escape tallahassee with a "w." >> steve: while we have a second, one more tip of a the cap top our crew member arnoff. the statistician in the booth. >> brian: this is where they like to run the ball with gallman. >> steve: pitch to gal gallson, stumbles. not going to get there. not going to get there. matt galambos came up to make a big stop. the middle linebacker and there's 58 seconds left. and pittsburgh has that one time-out left.
goal. >> brian: galambos, taleni, they came up with a big defense and cover down with five defensive linemen mv give them credit. they needed that play and they got it. now, they do have a time-out. steve, that time-out was worth 40 seconds. they could have had no time-outs and 40 more seconds. this is how pat narduzzi has chosen to go. >> steve: the field goal kicker, four career field goals of 50 of more yards. heerp's pete able to escape, he will take off, middle of the field. he's just shy of the first down marker. >> brian: and narduzzi's going to turn the time-out right away. he took a time-out, didn't feel like peterman got to the first down sticks. so he ran up to the official and called time-out.
long of 56 yards. that's a school record. hit it at georgia tech in 2015. he's missed an extra point tonight and had a 53 yarder prior to the half blocked. >> brian: if you're dabo swinney on the sideline, what is going through his head? going back to the nc state finish and missed a 33 yarder and he fell to his knees, his hands and knees and was thankful just to g >> steve: win streaks on the line for clemson. we figure they got to get to the 38 of clemson. give him a try from 56. you see the field goal target line. across the line, it's orndoff, they are in field goal range out to the 33. >> brian: plenty of time here to
>> steve: peterman throwing again. again, it's orndoff about the 30 yard line. >> steve: if you are perterman, you would louf to make it a feasible field goal attempt. >> steve: sideline, dangerous pass, looking for weah. ryan carter came home for the smack. that's a dangerous play. >> ban the peterman. i like the throw out there. but doesn't hurt him, right? incomplete pass, stops the clock. >> steve: third and six. it's a 48-yard field goal from here. brk you have to keep your eye on the play clock here. only ten seconds. you cannot have a penalty here.
peterman who has thrown across his body. incomplete. could not hook up with dontez ford. >> brian: that's crunch time. crunch time blitz from venables, and incompletion and it's going to force a longer field goal attempt. the last field goal, the only field goal it into the back of his line. he has to get it up in the back of the air. >> steve: 48-yard field goal attempt. chris blewitt, the senior. >> brian: dabo got the time-out that time. >> steve: prior to halftime, he tried to get a time-out. and blewitt had it block md hech banged it off his own offensive lineman.
>> brian: in this situation, you just got to trust it. and will this kiss pay off for pat narduzzi? >> steve: you said you loved that coaching. >> brian: i do love it. probably saying, i'm going to need you later. if we're going to do this, i need you to get your head in the swing and lecht it rip. >> steve: pat quirin, the long snapper. ryan winslow to hold it for chris blewitt to try to knock out number two at clemson. all the way and good!
>> steve: with six seconds left and it is stunned disbelief inside death valley. >> brian: you want to talk about the nerves on a kicker. not only did he kick that earlier, he missed an extra point in this game and pat narduzzi put his arm around him and gives him a kiss and says, i need you later and he was there for before the game and said how comfortable are you? and he said, we have a great kicker. he nailed one from 56 last year, and if we had to do it, put in a situation, i would let him go a couple yards in further than that. he had a lot of kchs in that guy and you can see it on the last one. exactly why. >> steve: when nc state was here. they had a chance to beat clemson. that was the other end omp the stadium. that was from 33.
>> brian: clemson has had so many close games this year. they dodged a bullet against nc state and dabo swinney knew it. they probably shouldn't have been in this situation in this game. there are a couple penal tapes that we will hear about. >> steve: a kick to the young man. and they flip it around and try to get it to the hands of scott and he gets it in his hands. he's drilled and that yees your football games and the pitt panthers pour on to the field. they have done the unthinkable. they have rocked clemson's world. and shaken up all of college football. >> brian: talk about chaos. we didn't think it was going to be this game. we thought maybe washington, maybe michigan tonight.
straight coming in. >> steve: and not here. first home loss against an unranked opponent. simply amazing. 44 straight games it had been. and down to todd mcshay, wow. >> todd: coach, unbelievable win. you hang in there and your defense comes up with three big turnovers. what are you feeling right now? >> unbelievable. our kids deserved this. we had a tough year, of tight games by this much and our guys finished tonight. you know, they get all the respect in the world. you know, the little panthers got it done. we got little number 5. we got little number 10 but we got a bunch of guy nas make plays. >> todd: coming in the game, we talked about the different matchups and your kicker. i asked you before and you said i got a great kicker. tough start to the day. but how about him hanging in
