ATLANTA — For a second straight year, No. 3 Clemson shut down Georgia Tech’s triple-option offense as the Tigers rolled to a 26-7 victory in Atlanta on Thursday night.

Clemson (4-0, 1-0 ACC) held the Yellow Jackets to 124 total yards, including just 95 on the ground. Last year, the Tigers held Tech to 71 rushing yards.

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables explains why the Tigers have played so well against the triple-option and what they did on Thursday to dominate the Yellow Jackets in Bobby Dodd Stadium.
