Senior safety DeAndre McDaniel knows the Tigers let one slip away Saturday night. The Thorpe award candidate says the team can easily correct the mistakes that allowed Auburn to get back in the game after Clemson dominated the first half.
Was it one of the more physical games he has been a part of at Clemson?
“Yeah, I think so. It was a real physical game. We knew it was going to be,” said McDaniel.
DeAndre injured his wrist during the game at Auburn.
“I think it is just a little sprain. I will be fine,’ said McDaniel.
Even in the loss DeAndre said the team learned something about themselves in the game.
“We knew we were going to go out there and give them a fight. We felt like we should have won it. We just kind of let down in the third quarter,” said McDaniel.
What happened to the defense in the third quarter?
“We have to stay focused. We have to continue to do our job. We have to make sure everybody is doing their job for the entire game. If we do that we can be a great defense. We just letup in the third quarter and gave up some big plays,” said McDaniel.
