The sounds of the War Chant echoed throughout the Clemson campus as the Tigers practiced Wednesday afternoon in preparation for the upcoming trip to Florida State. Head Coach Dabo Swinney put the team through a light workout and said he plans to back off this late in the season to keep the team fresh.
With the Tigers recent struggles at kicker, Swinney said that this week’s competition is still too close to call. He hopes to have a decision after tomorrow’s practice, but whoever does win the job will be on a short leash.
On the injury front, the Tigers seem to be in better shape for Saturday. Miguel Chavis (ankle) will play. Jaron Brown (ankle) is still not 100 percent, but is expected to play. Byron Maxwell (turf toe) in continuing to get better and should be able to get more snaps against the Seminoles.
The Tigers will continue preparation for Florida State tomorrow before departing for Tallahassee on Friday. Clemson will be looking for only its second win in the past two decades at Doak Campbell Stadium.
