Clemson sophomore Corico Hawkins will be responsible for calling the defenses this weekend when the Tigers try to defeat the Jackets for the first time since 2006. 

“Those guys do a great job of running the option over there.  Coach Paul Johnson is a great coach.  They have great players that fit that scheme.  They do a good job.  It is all about eyes and playing responsibility football for four quarters,” said Hawkins.
