Clemson head coach Brad Brownell spoke to the media on Thursday as he previewed Saturday’s game against No. 22 Florida in Sunrise, Fla., as part of the Orange Bowl Classic.
The Tigers are looking to improve on their 8-1 start, which is their best start since the 2008-’09 season. It is the 16th time in Clemson in the last 40 years the Tigers have started a year with an 8-1 record. In 14 of those years the Tigers landed in the postseason, including six times in the NCAA Tournament.
