CLEMSON, S.C., Nov. 3 (AP) —Clemson's veteran defense intercepted three Wake Forest passes — one was returned 17 yards by Jeff Davis for a touchdown — as the Tigers upset the Deacons, 31?0, in an Atlantic Coast Conference game today.



Chuck?McSwain?had scoring runs of 10 and 1 yards, the latter set up by an interception. The Clemson quarterback, Billy Lott, passed 10 yards to Perry Tuttle for a touchdown after Terry Kinard had intercepted another pass and returned it 31 yards.



McSwain's second score came after Eddie Geathers ran 43 yards to the 1?yard line with an interception of pass by the Wake Forest quarterback, Jay Venuto.



The victory gave Clemson the same A.C.C. won?lost record, 3?2, as the Deacons. Clemson is 6?2 over all, while Wake Forest dropped to 7?2.



Lott mixed running plays with deft passing. He occasionally ran the ball himself, gaining 33 yards in the fiveplay, 72?yard drive that ended with McSwain's first touchdown.

They thought they had a great team and were going to destroy us. We destroyed them.

That Wake Forest team beat UGA between the hedges that year! And true to Vince Dooley scheduling theory, haven't played em' since.

Is anyone surprised Billy "run a Lott" occasionally ran the ball himself?!
