Following Clemson’s 28-14 win over Wake Forest the Clemson Insider gave out helmet stickers to players who had outstanding individual performances.
The second-ranked Tigers improved to 6-0 overall and 4-0 in the ACC with the win. Clemson had good balance as it threw for 263 yards and ran for 190. The Clemson defense held Wake to 336 total yards and to just 4-of-16 on third down.
Clemson had another solid defensive performance carrying a shutout into the final frame before the Demon Deacons scored 14 points off of a blown coverage and on some of the Clemson backups. For yet another week Austin Bryant had a major impact on the defensive side.
Bryant certainly made his presence known Saturday afternoon. He racked up seven tackles and a pair of tackles-for-loss in the Tigers’ victory.
Ray-Ray McCloud impacted the game in a plethora of ways on Saturday afternoon. On special teams, he totaled 58 yards on his four returns including a 23-yard return. It is just a matter of time before he breaks one loose.
Offensively McCloud had a very productive day as well. The junior receiver caught five passes for 38 yards for a solid day’s work.
Tanner Muse was all over the field Saturday, too, and put up excellent defensive numbers. The sophomore safety accumulated eight tackles, a tackle-for-loss, a pass-breakup, and a quarterback-hurry.
Johnson entered Saturday’s game after Zerrick Cooper following Kelly Bryant’s injury and kick started the offense to their final score. He went a perfect 5-for-5 through the air and led a 4 play, 32-yard scoring drive to give Clemson a 28-0 lead.
Despite the circumstances, Johnson showed his readiness to step up when he commanded the Tigers’ offense.
Renfrow led “Wide Receiver U” in yards again on Saturday with 61 yards and made some big catches to extend drives.
His biggest catch came in the third quarter when the Tigers faced a fourth-and-three and needed to get the offense rolling. Renfrow came into the game and caught an out-route and ran for 29 yards to set up Etiennes touchdown run giving Clemson a 21-0 advantage.
