CLEMSON, S.C. --- Kyle Parker threw for 114 yards and two touchdowns in just four possessions to lead Clemson to a 58-21 win over Presbyterian on Saturday.

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

By the second quarter, Daniel Barnes, a running back who didn't play in last week's 35-10 romp over North Texas was shouldering the load on a touchdown drive that ended with him scoring on an 11-yard shovel pass.

Clemson is now 24-0 against Football Championship Subdivision opponents, all the wins by 10 points or more. Presbyterian (0-2) is on a 16-game losing streak.

Now, the schedule gets tougher for the Tigers, who travel to No. 21 Auburn next weekend.

The starters didn't play long for Clemson, which played 57 players by the end of the first quarter.

Parker was on the sidelines by the end of the first quarter, although he did start the second half. But coaches pulled him out for good after he threw three incompletions and took a hard hit. The Tigers top runners, Jamie Harper and Andre Ellington, had just six carries between them.

Backup quarterback Tajh Boyd went 4 for 9 for 87 yards and two touchdowns.

Clemson looked bad against

Clemson looked bad against North Texas even if the score didn't show it. There is hope though. The rest of the ACC looked terrible yesterday. James Madison beat VA Tech? Wowza. Clemson ACC Champions by default.
