The South Carolina wide receiver hauled in five catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. As a team, Clemson had 190 yards through the air.
"He had a lot of chunk plays," said Coty Sensabaugh, who leads the Clemson defense with 756 snaps played this season.
"Hopefully we can contain him better this time around, better than we did last year."
According to Sensabaugh, there isn't much about Jeffery that makes him easy to defend.
"He's a very big target. Can definitely go up and get the ball. Very physical...he has real big body, and he's real tall. He has great hands. He can kind of shield defensive backs off," Sensabaugh said.
RIGHT THE WRONGS: Dwayne Allen has never played in a Clemson/South Carolina game that the Tigers have won.
Clemson hasn't won the annual rivalry game since 2008, when Allen was a freshman.
"I saw them win my true freshman year here at home," he said. "I want to bring that pride back here to the Clemson Tigers' fan base."
And just how bad does he want it?
"Bad, bad, bad, so bad," Allen said. "For my seniors and for my fan base."
GAME NO. 12: This Saturday marks the end of the regular season.
Is the game big?
For Corico Hawkins, they're all big.
"It's another week for us," he said. "Of course, people say you get extra excited for South Carolina. Treat it like every other game. We go out and play as hard as we can play, do what we can do to win the game."
Tigers must account for Jeffery
