Georgia Tech’s first drive of the game went 11 plays and covered an initial 62 yards and took nearly seven minutes of the clock, but Clemson’s defense never panicked. They stayed true to their word of the week, and essentially shut down the Yellow Jackets’ offense in Clemson’s 49-21 win Saturday afternoon.
