Columbia, SC


Sun Sentinel
November 20, 1993

Derrick Witherspoon had a 5-yard touchdown run and late-season replacement quarterback Dexter McCleon directed a second-half comeback as No. 24 Clemson (8-3) defeated South Carolina (4-7) 16-13.

Witherspoon's score for the Tigers, who trailed 13-3 at halftime, evened the score at 13-13, and Nelson Welch's third field goal - a 31-yarder with 11:53 remaining - gave them the lead..

South Carolina drove to Clemson's 28-yard line with three minutes left, but linebacker Harom Pringle stopped Toby Cates on a reverse for a 7-yard loss and quarterback Steve Taneyhill threw incomplete on 4th-and-17.

Clemson, which has won four of its last five games, finished third in the Atlantic Coast Conference and is likely headed for a Peach Bowl matchup with Kentucky.

Loved that win. I had been out of state for about 10 years, so it was nice to be back in the Valley. Dexter McCleon was quite an athlete. DB/OB and very good baseball player. I think he played about 10 years in the NFL. He was really a big time player. One season he managed to be named ACC player of the week on defense, offense and special teams. Thanks for sharing a really good personal memory for me. Additionally, my long suffering now deceased Gamecock grad father in law got to pick up the dinner tab bet. I hurt him bad on that one!

my most hated Coot QB turned broadcaster. And I use the term broadcaster in its loosest, broadest connotation.
