Here’s a look at how Twitter reacted to the first half of the Clemson-Louisiana Tech game:
Will Shipley is having himself a day. He has provided a spark for this offense in what has been a positive response from Clemson in the third.

Will Shipley is the first Clemson player to score at least five rushing touchdowns in the first three games of a season since quarterback Kelly Bryant in 2017. Shipley is the first Clemson running back to accomplish the feat since James Davis in 2006.

End of 2Q: Clemson- 13, Louisiana Tech-6
Very mediocre half of football for the Tigers, as they have roughly 3 fewer minutes in time of possession. Clemson’s defense has allowed -1 rushing yards through the first half but has struggled to get off the field early.

Great grab from Ngata
This may have been DJ Uiagalelei’s best throw of his young career

DJ Uiagalelei has already made some really nice throws already tonight. Had a good far-hash throw and then a beautiful bucket throw to Joseph Ngata to set up a Will Shipley TD.

Will Shipley and @ClemsonFB teammates take a moment in pregame to honor DT Bryan Bresee’s sister, Ella, who unfortunately lost her battle with brain cancer this past week. #EllaStrong pic.twitter.com/Uf8WprxKiP
