CHARLOTTE — For the first time all season, Clemson’s defense did not have its stuff. But everything was okay. Trevor Lawrence, Tee Higgins and the rest of the Clemson offense had their back.
The third-ranked Tigers scored an ACC Championship Game record 62 points, while racking up a championship game record 619 total yards in a 62-17 victory over No. 23 Virginia Saturday at Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte.
“The offense was fantastic,” defensive coordinator Brent Venables said after Clemson wrapped up its fifth consecutive ACC Championship.
It was not a fantastic night for the defense, though it was not bad either.
