Tigers Roll On: ACC Championship Rapid Reactions

Virginia made it competitive for almost a quarter, but the Tigers skill position guys were just too much for the Cavaliers defense. Clemson wins its fifth straight ACC Title game 62-17 over Virginia and now moves onto a fifth straight playoff.

  • It’s insane how small your margin for error is against this Clemson team. UVA came out playing well. One pick and one punt and that was all it too, it was basically over for them. It was 17-7 and Clemson never looked back.
  • 62 points and over 600 yards of offense against a solid defense.
  • Perkins was able to make some plays early but the Clemson defense made some adjustments and clamped down in the second quarter, making life more difficult for him.
  • Holding Perkins to just over 3 YPC is not a bad day at the office.
  • If this team faces off with LSU they will absolutely have to find a way to generate more pressure on the QB.
  • The Cavaliers secondary was no match for the big, physical Clemson receivers. Tee Higgins and Justyn Ross abused their corners all night long.
  • Tee Higgins 9 catches 182 yards 3 TDs… beast mode.
  • Trevor Lawrence is really dialed in. Did he have even a single throw that was off target in that first half? 16-22 for over 300 yards and 4 TDs. Averaged more than 13 YPA in just three quarters.
  • Chase Brice with the long ball on the money. Something people have been waiting to see.
  • Travis Etienne…. nobody is better at getting yards after contact. He is the best back in the country. If he doesn’t get an invite to NYC, something is wrong with the process.
  • Tigers streak of holding opponents under 300 total yards ends at 12.
  • That was a pretty solid football team Clemson rolled tonight and will only get better while Bronco Mendenhall is there.
