Clemson offense vs. Georgia Tech defense

• The Tigers should control the line of scrimmage working against an undersized Yellow Jackets defensive line, but don't expect Clemson to gash Georgia Tech's run defense. For starters, the Georgia Tech linebacker corps is instinctive and athletic. Secondly, SS Morgan Burnett is a reliable open-field tackler who plays with a mean streak and flows downhill when he reads run. Thirdly, and arguably most importantly, RB C.J. Spiller tweaked his hamstring last week. While he is expected to play, whether the injury hinders or limits him remains to be seen. Meanwhile, reserves Jamie Harper and Andre Ellington are not as explosive as Spiller.
