“This is probably my most anticipated game since the Stanford game last year, seeing that Clemson has already knocked off Florida State and they beat Auburn, who were the national champions last year,” said Gayle. “I feel like it’s a huge step in competition. I feel like the first four games were kind of getting us ready for ACC play.”
Despite all the success Clemson has had on offense, they will once again be facing another stout defense in Virginia Tech. The Hokies are allowing just 231 yards per game and have the second best rushing defense giving up just 43 yards per game.
Virginia Tech has done most of their damage offensively on the ground. Starting running back David Wilson has led the charge and has 516 yards on the year and is averaging 5.9 yards per carry. Quarterback Logan Thomas has also been effective and has passed for 761 yards with four touchdowns and four interceptions.
