Clemson On The Defensive Going Into FSU Game
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson's offense sure looks ready for Florida State. The 10th-ranked Tigers' defense? That's anyone's guess after another so-so showing against Furman of the Football Championship Subdivision.
Clemson (3-0) beat the Paladins 41-7 and open defense of its Atlantic Coast Conference title at No. 4 Florida State in Tallahassee, a game that figures to go a long way in deciding the Atlantic Division.
Clemson's offense has been every bit as explosive as a year ago, especially with Sammy Watkins back from a two-game suspension. The Tigers' defense also looks like it did in 2011 — and that's not a good thing.
Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said his group's first half showing made him want to throw up. It may have made Florida State coaches lick their chops.
