Inside the numbers of Clemson vs. Alabama.

2 Minute (ish) Recap: Miami

2 minute video recap of Clemson’s 38-3 shellacking of Miami in the ACC Championship Game: That 3rd down defense, the “blazing fast” Travis Etienne, Christian Wilkins “monster night”, Alex Spence “drills” one inside the right upright, Tavien Feaster breaks free and Deon Cain deep.

2 Minute Recap: South Carolina

2 minute recap of Clemson’s 34-10 win over South Carolina – “Oh, this is gonna be danger!”, Feaster for 6, “2 times the coverage has fooled Jake Bentley”, touchdown Hunter Renfrow, Hunter Renfrow utilizes entire field and goes through the entire defense for TD number 2 and Etienne scores.

2 Minute (ish) Video Recap: Syracuse

In the Tigers only loss on the season, there were plenty of highlights: Clelin Ferrell does Clelin Ferrell things, Feaster zooms for 6, Dorian O’Daniel registers another sack, Tanner Muse scoops and scores, Hunter Renfrow makes a “sick” catch, Travis Etienne goes the distance and the dreaded fake field goal.

2 Minute (ish) Video Recap: Auburn

The average drive against Clemson defense

I realize it’s only 2 games in, Kent State is a pseudo FBS team that played four corners and Auburn doesn’t light up the scoreboard. ┬áThat said, the numbers below are impressive.

Huge challenge this week with Lamar Jackson and Louisville.

Here is what the average drive for opponents have looked like in the first two games (24 drives):
