Tuesday afternoon Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables addressed the media concerning N.C. State, who will host the Tigers Thursday night in the “textile bowl” at Carter-Finley Stadium in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Wolfpack head coach Dave Doeren has a defensive background. Prior to his highly successful run at Northern Illinois in which he won back-to-back MAC championships, Doeren was the defensive coordinator at Wisconsin.
Venables delves into Doeren and N.C. State offensive coordinator Matt Canada’s offensive philosophy and what the Clemson defense will need to do to slow down the multiple looks of the Wolfpack, which Venables claims, to no surprise, boasts the same looks as Wisconsin and Northern Illinois on film.
Venables also talks about his defensive rotation, some notable NC State pieces he’ll have to defend, and much more.
