Venables pleased with shutout

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables was pleased with the way his defense played in Saturday’s 59-0 shutout of S.C. State at Death Valley.

It was the second straight year Venables’ defense recorded a shutout. The Tigers held the Bulldogs to 102 total yards and to just nine first downs. S.C. State averaged just 1.9 yards per play, ran for 48 yards on 32 carries and was just 3 of 13 on third down.

The Clemson defense also had five sacks, 10 tackles for loss and two forced turnovers. More importantly, they finished the game.
