S.C. State not thrilled about having Clemson’s full attention

ORANGEBURG, South Carolina -- There’s some unhappiness at Clemson with the way the Tigers’ offense has performed this season. You can add South Carolina State coach Buddy Pough to the list of people not thrilled with the way Clemson enters Saturday’s game.

S.C. State’s no stranger to playing at Clemson. This will be the third meeting between the two schools since 2013.

Clemson won the previous two meetings by scores of 52-13 and 73-7, and Pough knows playing a Tigers squad coming off a lackluster performance against Troy might not be good for his Bulldogs.

“We know enough about Clemson to understand that they’ve probably not played as well as they can play. It’ll be interesting to see how they react to us,” he said. “I think this may give them a little different sense of urgency. I really do get the feel that they’ll try to really get after us. We’re going to try to do the same to them, but at the same time their get-after-it might be a little bit different than our get-after-it.”
