Nothing says Miami football like taunting down 25 in the 4th. The U is truly back.— Austin Pendergist (@apthirteen) October 11, 2020
Can we take a second to discuss just how athletically gifted this play is by Clemson CB Andrew Booth? Going to be a stud for this defense. pic.twitter.com/Y64d9pLF86— Coach Robert Ortiz (@CoachOrtizOL) October 11, 2020

picturing what Travis Etienne/Clemson is gonna do to FSU's run defense ... charges should be preemptively filed .. right now.— Sanjay Kirpalani (@SanjayKirpalani) October 11, 2020
Another difference in the two programs....Clemson has rotated absolute dudes on the DL all night. Miami's four starters have had little rest— David Hood (@MDavidHood) October 11, 2020

The most eye-opening stat of the night to me was not what the defense gave up but how the Miami offense was so thoroughly taken out of its game. A team that had averaged over 200 yds rushing had its top 3 backs gain a total of 11 yards. Clemson dictated the tempo, not Miami.— Andrea Adelson (@aadelsonESPN) October 11, 2020

Coach Swinney on the defense: “They were relentless. We had a good scheme tonight. We did an awesome job, disrupted them all night. Sacks, turnovers. It was a turnover fest in the second half.” pic.twitter.com/3n0jkb7Zuf— Clemson Football (@ClemsonFB) October 11, 2020
