No. 16 Clemson seeking to regain offensive spark


CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris laid things out as clearly as he could for the Tigers after their scoreless second half in a 45-21 loss at No. 12 Georgia this weekend: If you're part of the Tigers' problem, you're "going to get gone."

Morris said Monday he challenged the offense to execute and work like the Clemson (0-1) attack has for much of his four seasons.

He didn't have many complaints in the first half when his high-tempo offense ran 54 plays, put up 276 yards and was tied with the Bulldogs at 21 heading to the locker room. The rest of the way didn't follow that script with just 15 yards gained the second half.

The 16th-ranked Tigers face South Carolina State (1-0) on Saturday.
