If Venables was Wake, he would put shovel pass in

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables said Pittsburgh caught 13 shovel passes in Saturday’s upset victory over the Tigers. Those 13 went for 75 of the Panthers’ 308 passing yards.

Venables says Wake Forest uses its tight ends the same way Pitt does with the throw back, bootlegs and the verticals.

“So they will put the shovel in … I would,” he said.
