CLEMSON, S.C. -- Dabo Swinney rolled forward out of his crouch, exhaled deeply and slapped the ground. The Clemson coach knew how fortunate the third-ranked Tigers were to escape with their latest victory.Theres something to be said for finding a way to win, Swinney said. And theres something to be said for knowing how to win.A little luck doesnt hurt either.The Tigers (7-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) needed all of it to squeak past North Carolina State 24-17 in overtime Saturday.The Wolfpack (4-2, 1-1) were a 33-yard field goal away at the end of regulation from quashing Clemsons perfect start. Instead, Kyle Bambard pushed the kick right and sent most of the 82,104 at Death Valley into hysterics.I kind of looked up and I saw it started to sail, then I closed my eyes because I couldnt believe it was actually happening, Clemson defensive end Christian Wilkins said. I waited for the crowd to cheer. They messed up because they gave us another chance.Given new life, Clemson responded like defending ACC champions. The Tigers converted a fourth-and-1 to keep their overtime the drive going, and then Deshaun Watson connected with Artavis Scott on a go-ahead 10-yard TD pass. Marcus Edmond intercepted Wolfpack quarterback Ryan Finleys deep thrown into the end zone to keep the Tigers undefeated and on track for the league title game and the College Football Playoff.It wasnt the prettiest effort for Clemson, which gave up 397 yards and turned it over four times -- including Watsons first-ever pick six -- to the Wolfpack.

Running backs coach and co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott said Gallmans prognosis is good.Receiver Hunter Renfrow, who had six catches in his first game since Sept. 10 because of a broken hand, was hurt in the fourth quarter and came out the rest of the way.TAKEAWAYNorth Carolina State: The Wolfpack look like a team on the rise, one of the few the past two season that has been able to take the Tigers down to the wire.Clemson: The Tigers have been clutch, but can they keep winning with all these turnovers?

The sophomore kickers had missed only one kick this season -- and that came in last weeks hurricane conditions against Notre Dame -- before coming to Clemson.I havent seen him yet, North Carolina State coach Dave Doeren said of Bambard.
