, Clemson has beaten Auburn and Florida State in consecutive weeks. As they prepare for their third consecutive ranked opponent in No. 11 Virginia Tech, ESPN analysts Urban Meyer and Todd McShay put that Tiger’s offense in the film room spotlight.

“They have one of the best tight ends in America, built perfectly for this offense. (Andre) Ellington is the perfect spread back. In comes Sammy Watkins, one of the most dynamic freshmen in recent history, and all of the sudden, you’re seeing the fruits of their reward.” – Urban Meyer on select Clemson players

“One of the fastest teams in America, executing on a high level.” – Meyer on the offense

“These kids have bought in. I asked (Clemson offensive coordinator) Chad Morris that question – how did you get your kids to buy in?” “He said, Coach, they want to be really good. They see Auburn right down the street win a national championship running the same style of offense, they want the same results.” – Meyer on the reaction of Clemson players this season

Look for the full segment during College GameDay Built by The Home Depot on Saturday at 9 a.m.-noon ET on ESPN. The segment will air around the 10:53 a.m. ET mark of the show.
