The Good

For Clemson, a thorough performance on both sides of the ball. Quarterback Kelly Bryant was sharp and the Tigers’ defense didn’t get out of position against the triple-option. For The Citadel, a fighting spirit demonstrated early when the Bulldogs went for it on fourth down (failed at the Clemson 40) and into a fourth-quarter field goal drive and onside kick.

The Bad

For Clemson, nothing significant. For The Citadel, the Bulldogs’ offense had enough problems without back-to-back blocking penalties in the second quarter.

The Wacky

Believe it or not, Hunter Renfrow’s 12-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter was his first TD since a certain game-winning grab against Alabama in Tampa.
