Led by Tallahassee native DeAndre McDaniel, Clemson ranks No. 1 in pass defense in the ACC giving up just 146 yards a game through the air. The Tigers have also been ball hawks recording a conference-high 15 interceptions on the season.
The passing game has been clicking the past few weeks and Christian Ponder now leads the ACC in passing yards and completion percentage. After struggling somewhat earlier in the season, the Seminole wide receivers have really come on as of late and the unit is deep with five wideouts having 25 or more receptions.
