3-0: (1)Clemson 41, Syracuse 6

The #1 Clemson Tigers took care of business over the weekend with a 41-6 victory over Syracuse in the oxymoronic Carrier Dome. In this ep we recap the game (9:16) including our thoughts on yet another dominant defensive performance that squeezed the life out of the Orange (15:40), an offense that somehow put up prolific numbers while also looking rusty (27:21) and continued solid performances on special teams (42:28).

August camp is in full swing in Tiger Town as the defending champs hit the field in preparation for the 2019 season.
