Clemson has just four days of preparation for Thursday night¹s game at Georgia Tech. The contest will be nationally televised by ESPN and has a 7:45 PM kickoff.
The Tigers practiced for two hours on Monday night on the
practice fields behind the Jervey Athletic Center. The first half of
practice included piped in crowd noise and the Georgia Tech fight song.
"We played at home in the opener and now we have our first road
game," said Clemson Head Coach Dabo Swinney. "We have to practice getting
the snap cadence, staying on tempo in an opponent's stadium with their crowd
noise. It was a good practice tonight. We have bounced back very well. We
played Saturday night, then practiced Sunday night and tonight. We are in
good shape physically."
That includes Clemson running back C.J. Spiller who went through
the entire practice.
"C.J. looked fine. You will see two of the best
running backs in the nation Thursday night."
Georgia Tech features ACC
Player of the Year Jonathan Dwyer as its top running back. Spiller did not
play in the second half against Middle Tennessee in the opener as he was
held out for precautionary reasons due to first half hamstring and foot
"It is a strange week when you play on Thursday night. Sunday
was like a Monday and Tuesday combined. Tonight was like a Tuesday and
Wednesday combined. Tomorrow (Tuesday) will be Thursday. I will be glad
when we get on a set schedule."
Clemson will play on just Saturday's the remainder of the
season with the weekend of October 10 serving as the open date.
