Clemson running back Travis Etienne was held to 8 yards on five carries in the first half against Duke, and he admitted that he got frustrated.
"The offensive line was blocking well for me. I was hitting it wrong and not making the right plays," Etienne said. "I had a false start, and I really got down on myself. Just got down on myself."
Etienne said it was his teammates that helped him to have a big second half for the Tigers.
"Adam (Choice) came and talked to me. Tavien (Feaster) came and talked to me," Etienne said. "Just gave me some words of encouragement and just got my mind focused on the next play. It really helped me out."
Etienne had 77 yards on four carries and two touchdowns in the second half.
