Clemson’s defense has shut down its last two opponents, Miami and Georgia Tech, with ease.
The top-ranked Tigers shut down the Yellow Jackets on Saturday in a 73-7 beatdown in Atlanta. Clemson held its opponent to 210 yards of total offense and forced an interception in the second quarter that set up a touchdown.
After the game defensive tackle Nyles Pinckney and corner back Andrew Booth talked about how, compared to practice, games are smooth sailing for the Tigers (4-0, 3-0 ACC).
Pinckney credited the high stress situations that defensive coordinator Brent Venables implements in practices to their success on game day.
