SYRACUSE, N.Y. — There is a reason why Clemson’s offense struggled in Friday’s 27-24 loss to Syracuse at the Carrier Dome – it panicked.
Clemson co-offensive coordinator Tony Elliott said the offense never got into any rhythm and had a tough time figuring out the Orange’s defense. Syracuse held Clemson to 317 total yards and to just 2-of-11 on third down.
The Tigers (6-1, 4-1 ACC) ran for just 113 yards on 25 carries.
“We started panicking and probably tried to do a little too much,” Elliott said after the game. “We fell out of rhythm and never really did get settle in the run game.”
