Let’s face it, Nate Wiggins did not have his best game against Wake Forest. Having said that, none of Clemson’s cornerbacks did.
Sam Hartman picked on the Tigers’ secondary most of the afternoon, accumulating 337 yards and six touchdowns.
Asked about the performance of the backend of his defense against the Demon Deacons, head coach Dabo Swinney had a lighthearted, but serious response.
“The only good thing I can say is that we didn’t give up seven (touchdowns).”
Wiggins, the sophomore corner that coaches raved about throughout fall camp also chimed in during a Monday media session, saying one game does not define any player.
“I feel like one game doesn’t (show) who I am,” Wiggins said.
Wiggins actually took it a step further, vowing to never have another performance like the one he had against Wake Forest, and the sophomore corner welcomes NC State quarterback, or any future opponent, to try and pick on him again.
“I ain’t ever going to have no game like that again,” Wiggins said. “They can try, but it’s not going to be the same results.”
No. 5 Clemson is set to face No. 10 NC State on Saturday night in Death Valley as the Tigers look to avenge last season’s loss to the Wolfpack.
