Clemson coordinators Brandon Streeter (offense), Wes Goodwin (defense), Mike Reed (Special Teams) and key players met with the media, Monday, as they continue preparations for this weekend’s trip to Florida State. The offense has excelled this season under Streeter, scoring no fewer than 30 points in any game while striking a balance between the run (37 attempts/game) and pass (34.5 attempts/game).
Goodwin’s defense has put whatever growing pains it was experiencing in the rearview mirror, holding NC State and Boston College to 23 combined points over the last two weeks. Reed’s unit, meanwhile, has made waves by blocking four kicks/punts through six games. Clemson (6-0, 4-0) will hope to carry all of that momentum into its showdown against Florida State, Saturday. The Tigers have won six straight in the series including the last two at Doak Campbell Stadium. This game often carries great significance in deciding the Atlantic Division. Either Clemson or FSU has participated in the ACC Championship Game for 12 of the last 13 seasons. With victories over Wake Forest, NC State and Boston College in the last three weeks, Dabo Swinney’s group has again put itself in position to represent the Atlantic in Charlotte after missing out in 2021.
Kickoff from Tallahassee, Fla., is set for 7:30 p.m., Saturday.
