Junior defensive end Corey Miller and the Byrnes Rebels will try to avenge their only loss of the season Friday night when they play a rematch with Dorman.

"We are planning on getting all the cuts. We are going to try to make some big plays in the backfield. We can't give up the big plays like last time," Miller told CUTigers.com Tuesday evening.

Byrnes was ranked No. 1 in the nation last month before losing to Dorman, 35-28.

The loss knocked Byrnes out of the national rankings completely while propelling Dorman to No. 14.

The Cavaliers are currently ranked No. 12 while Byrnes has re-entered the top 25 at No. 22.

How is the team's confidence level going into the rematch?

"It is not really a confidence type situation. It is more of an issue of team togetherness and wanting to get the job done. We win or we go home. We got to get it done," replied Miller.

The opportunity to play the state championship in Death Valley is a big motivator for the Byrnes standout.

"It would be something great," he said. "I am kind of use to seeing things in Columbia. It would be a big change. It is a great opportunity."

What is the junior standout hearing from the Tigers at this point?

"I need to get back in touch with coach Napier. We have exchanged some messages, but I haven't heard a lot from him," replied Miller.

Expect to see Corey and several of his teammates in Death Valley this weekend.

"I am going to try to attend the South Carolina game Saturday. Nick, Jazz and Marcus [Lattimore] should be there also," said Miller.

The coaching change at Clemson has not had a big impact on where the Tigers stand.

"They are going through some hardships right now, but they are a great team regardless. They are still in my top five. I will just wait and see what they will do about the coach," said Miller.

Who are the other teams in Miller's top five?

"North Carolina and Florida State. Georgia is still looking good even though they haven't offered yet. California and South Carolina are also in there," replied Miller.

"I still plan to wait until my senior season to make a decision."
