The Clemson Tigers are off to a solid 4-1 start to the season, with their only loss coming at No. 3 Florida State on Sept. 22. The offense has continued its impressive play, rolling up 510.8 yards of offense per game. However, the defense has been leaky, surrendering 438 yards per game to opponents.
The Tigers host the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets in Death Valley this weekend. The Tigers started last season with an unblemished 8-0 record before falling 31-17 to the Yellow Jackets on Oct. 29, 2011.
The Tigers topped Boston College last week 45-31 behind the excellent play of quarterback Tajh Boyd, who accounted for four touchdowns. Georgia Tech, on the other hand, is coming off an embarrassing 49-28 home setback against Middle Tennessee State.
Here is what Clemson must do in order to emerge victorious on Saturday.
