Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele has to prepare annually for Georgia Tech and it’s triple option, wingbone attack. He and his defensive mates will get an early taste of that offense Saturday when Wofford visits Death Valley.
The Tigers gave up 423 yards in their season opening win over Troy last Saturday. Offensively, the Tigers totaled 468 yards. They passed for 271 yards and rushed for 197 yards.
It took the Tigers a little while to get rolling on offense against Troy. They trailed at the half 16-13. But a 54 yard touchdown reception by tight end Dwayne Allen turned the game around and seemed to jump start the offense.
The Tigers went on to score 30 points and churn out 347 yards in the second half. They averaged 8.9 yards per play over the final 30 minutes.
