Travis Etienne led Clemson's running back group in snaps for a second time this season, in a second-straight game.

Three starters out pregame – and two held out as the game went on – Clemson’s defensive rotation had quite a different look to it in the Atlantic Division-clincher.

Junior linebacker J.D. Davis made his second career start in Kendall Joseph’s place and played the second-most snaps of any linebacker (55, career-high), with eight tackles (1.5 TFL).

Eight linebackers mixed in, in all, with sophomore Chad Smith seeing a career-high 39 snaps due to Tre Lamar leaving early with a shoulder injury (stinger).

With both Dexter Lawrence and Jabril Robinson out, sophomore defensive tackle Albert Huggins notched a career-high 40 snaps with two tackles for loss.

In the secondary, sophomore K’Von Wallace took most of the safety snaps (53) with Tanner Muse (1) limited due to a cast on one of his hands. Freshman A.J. Terrell tied for his second-most plays (25) and contributed two tackles and a pass breakup after Ryan Carter was knocked out of the game.

Of note on the offensive side, Travis Etienne narrowly led the running back group in snaps (27) for a second-straight game, ahead of Tavien Feaster (26), Adam Choice (20) and C.J. Fuller (9).
