Saturday’s game in Death Valley couldn’t have been scripted much better. Cooler temperatures moved into the area late last week, and even though a few showers moved into the area in the morning, by late afternoon there was brilliant sunshine surrounding Death Valley.
Clemson is ranked second in the country by most major polls and is on a roll, having outscored the last two ACC opponents by a combined score of 104-10. Head coach Dabo Swinney told the media Sunday evening that he is pleased with his team’s improvement, but the best is yet to come.
The regular season second half started with a bang in a battle of top-15-ranked teams. Clemson showed off improvement in all three phases of the game on the way to a 41-7 win.
Brent Venables had a good feeling his defense would dominate Wake Forest two weeks ago when the Tigers got off the bus. A fantastic week of practice and an air of confidence surrounded his group, and he knew the Demon Deacons would pay the price.
Leave no doubt. The Clemson football team spent two weeks listening to the national media and hearing the sound bites coming out of Raleigh, about how NC State could challenge the Tigers for supremacy in the ACC Atlantic Division.
