After reviewing the travel roster...here are the notable missing pieces for Clemson

DE - Xavier Thomas
DT - Tre Williams
CB - Sheridan Jones
S - Andrew Mukuba
DB - Malcolm Greene

As I mentioned in the Keys to the Game article, a few of these in the secondary we felt like could be out. Had hoped to see XT this week, but I guess he hasn't progressed as quickly as they hoped.

Good morning everyone! Back in the saddle today to see a key ACC matchup between Clemson and Wake Forest. Let's see if the Tigers can pick up a big road win this afternoon.

As Lawton mentioned, there are several defensive starters out today for Clemson. It will definitely be something to watch against Sam Hartman and an explosive Demon Deacon offense.

Clemson won the toss and deferred until the second. Wake has the ball as we get things going.

Good opening defensive possession for Clemson. Fortunate that KJ Henry wasn't flagged on that late push on Hartman.

Wake with a couple of first downs but they are now forced to punt. Tigers with the ball now after the timeout.

Huge 53-yard run from Will Shipley to start the game for Clemson.

Clemson comes out and scores on the opening drive. DJU waited for Jake Briningstool to come open on a 12-yd TD pass.

That's an 8 play, 88 yard drive and Clemson leads 7-0 with 8:09 in the first quarter.

Here's Shipley's big run:

The pass that was complete from Sam Hartman to A.T. Perry is under review. Looks like he's a yard short.

Clemson leads 7-0 with 8:09 to play in the opening quarter from Winston Salem.

And the play is overturned and the Tigers will take over.

Tiger receivers guilty of penalties on the last two plays puts them in 2nd and 3rd and long now.

Brannon Spector catches the ball for a 41-yard TD on what was almost an interception from Gavin Holmes for Wake Forest.

Clemson leads 14-0 with 5:09 in the first quarter. Impressive start for the Tigers on the road -- DJU is perfect so far (7-7, 104 yards and 2 TDs)

DJU converted 3rd and 21 with a completion to Briningstool up the seam, which aided the TD.

Jahmal Banks beats Fred Davis for a 36-yard TD, who was guilty of pass interference on the last play. Demon Deacs took 3 shot plays and all penalties against a young secondary.

Clemson's lead is cut to 14-7 with 4:13 to play in the first quarter.

This game is going to be a good opportunity to see Wes Goodwin's adjustment ability. Wake Forest found a recipe for victory in that drive against our young secondary.

Clemson will be forced to punt. DJU tried to hit Brannon Spector but two defenders for Wake closed on the ball.

2 minutes to play in the opening quarter. Clemson leads 14-7.

Tigers have the ball when play resumes.

First Quarter Stat Review-- DJ has been sharp out of the gates. Goodwin needs to adjust and trust his front to stop Wake's rushing game.

I've been talking about that all season. Being a film guy is one thing-- coaching on game day is a different beast.

Not a huge fan of that 3rd down play call trying to roll out to your left with a right handed QB.

K.J. Henry brings the pressure to Sam Hartman and the Deacs are forced to punt. A sack really aided that drive as the defense cranked up the pressure there.

12:56 to play before the half. Clemson up 14-7.

Clemson gets a huge completion from the young freshman, Antonio Williams who has been talked about on the radio show the last few weeks.

The drive stalls, however on the goal line but B.T. Potter knocks through the 24-yard FG to increase the Tigers' lead to 17-7.

The previous play is under review for possible targeting from Toriano Pride. This is a secondary that is already thin and makes things that much tougher.

The call on the field is reversed and Toriano Pride remains in the game.

Jahmal Banks with his second TD of the day beats Toriano Pride for a 5-yd score. Tigers lead 17-14 with 5:49 to play before the half. Clemson's secondary is doing the best they can considering who is out today, IMO. This is what happens when you have freshman in the ball game. It's going to be tough.

Clemson will get points here before the half as B.T. Potter knocks through the 38 yard FG.

Tigers lead 20-14 with 14 seconds to play before the halftime break.

That drive was 15 plays, 51 yards and took up over 5 and 1/2 minutes. I think this will be the recipe for the Clemson offense in the 2nd half with the injuries on defense.

Clemson is forced to punt on their first series. Had a nice completion to Joseph Ngata to start things off.

Ok so for those watching at home, they've got the double box up with the Red Sox/Yankees game as Aaron Judge is trying for a record 61st home run. And they've cut the audio from the TV broadcast in Winston Salem.
