Clemson defense preparing for Bulldog option attack

The Tigers dominated on both sides of the ball against the Wake Forest Demon Deacons and made a great first impression in last week’s win.

Brent Venables’s defense looked stellar as usual, allowing 330 yards and only letting Wake get in the end zone once.

This week, however, the Tiger defense faces a new challenge as they go up against a completely different offensive philosophy with The Citadel.

Venables has had little trouble in the past stopping the option offense, whether it was Georgia Tech, Wofford, or the opponent this week. But with young players who may have not seen this offensive scheme before, the defense has a lot of work to do.
