Venables uses many variables to develop a top-10 defense

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables and the rest of the defense is back to work prepping for their upcoming matchup with Boston College, set for Saturday at Death Valley.

While last weekend’s performance against Syracuse wasn’t the best showing the defense has put together this season, the unit has still remained one of the best in the country.

So far this season, the Clemson defense ranks 10th nationally, allowing 274.7 in total yards a game. They also rank 10th in yards allowed per play at 4.31 and tied for fourth in turnovers gained with 13.
