The Storylines

Clemson’s depth on offense was on display as four different players, including punter and emergency quarterback Will Spiers completed at least two passes and 17 different players caught a pass to contribute to the Tigers’ second 500-yard passing day in school history. Clemson’s 17 different players recording a reception were its most in a single-game under Dabo Swinney.

The Tiger defense has been on a tear along with the offense as the group coordinated by Brent Venables held No. 7 Miami to nine first down two weeks ago and last week against Georgia Tech, they held the Jackets to seven first downs, marking Clemson’s first time holding consecutive opponents to single-digit first downs since the Wake Forest and South Carolina games last November. This week, Clemson is attempting to hold a third consecutive opponent to fewer than 10 first downs for the first time since its 1954 season finale and the first two games of 1955.

Good morning, or what it soon to be this afternoon everyone! We are just over 15 minutes away from kickoff in Death Valley between Clemson and Syracuse. Glad to have you on board with us.

A couple of quick bubble screens to Amari Rodgers and another quick throw to Cornell Powell and he takes it into the endzone for Clemson's first score of the day. 7-0 with 13:35 to go in the first from Death Valley.

Good morning from Hoboken, NJ - I like that quick start by the Tigers!

Too easy. Hard to complain when it is so easy but.... so many bubble screen passes I feel like Rob Spence is back lol. Miami was starting to jump them a couple weeks ago.

And Skalski being out hurts because he leads the defense. Luckily Cuse is way out manned

Well, the Tigers get a quick three-and-out....BTW, Nebraska went right down the field on Ohio State. 7-0 Huskers early...didn't see that coming.

Travis Etienne puts it on the ground for the second straight week as the Tigers went three-and-out on their second drive.

And Nolan Turner picks off another opposing quarterback for the second straight week. This week it's Rex Culpepper and it looked similar to last week against Georgia Tech.

Joseph Charleston makes the 4th down stop on the direct snap to the back for the Cuse. Clemson takes over.

A great explosion and burst from Travis Etienne gets him into the end zone from 25 yards out. It's 17-0 Clemson. Big catch from Ladson on the RPO earlier in the drive. 17-0 with 4:25 left to play in the opening quarter.

Baylon Spector is getting after Rex Culpepper so far. Back-to-back drives Venables has sent him on a blitz.

That run by Travis Etienne...gracious.

How about Baylon Spector too? This kid gets after it!

And another blitz from Lannden Zanders.

Drops and Trevor Lawrence nearly throws his 2nd interception of the year....

And now as I type, Clemson has the punt blocked. Definitely not the best start from the Tigers. Still up 17-0.

Felt like a lazy effort by the Tigers on that blocked punt

Yup. Swinney won't be happy about that one watching the film.

Syracuse is on the board to start the second quarter as Sean Tucker punches it in. Clemson's lead is cut to 17-7.

Some sloppy play early for Clemson. The blocked punt leads to points for Syracuse.

17-7 Tigers with 14:15 left in Q2

Travis Etienne and Matt Bockhorst shaken up on that play.

Glad to see EJ Williams emerging. Future looks bright.

Will Spiers gets the first down on the fake punt. Tigers needing a spark here and the coaching staff makes a good call.

Nice Job on the fake. Hopefully we see some spark from the offense

B.T. Potter hooks it to the right and Clemson comes away empty on that drive. Still 17-7. I don't agree with the throwback pass to Trevor Lawrence, especially with him taking hits like that.

Wow. Feels like a lot of the play book for no points. Come on Tigers!!!

If the throw to Lawrence is not short he is gone. The short throw was scary

Missing half of the Bruise Bros for sure.

Cornell Powell shaken up on that drop. He had the Tigers' first score of the day today. Travis Etienne is back in the game.

Nice fake from Trevor Lawrence to get the safety to bite and hit Davis Allen up the seam, just like last week against Georgia Tech. A 17-yard TD strike increases Clemson's lead back out to 24-7 with 2:54 to go for the half. Swinney still won't be too thrilled with the totality of the first half.
