Clemson defensive tackle Christian Wilkins, linebacker J.D. Davis and defensive tackle Albert Huggins break down the Tigers' 31-14 win over Florida State and a number of reserves stepping into key roles down the stretch:

On the success against Florida State:
“We stuck to the game plan and stopped the run game. We did a good job keeping them to short gains and made them two-dimensional. Our guys played with great effort and energy.”

On going to his third straight ACC Championship:
“It feels pretty good. It is pretty remarkable. Not every team gets to experience that...winning three divisions. It’s not a right. It’s good to see the work we have put over these past three years I’ve been here pay off. The moments and memories you create with your brothers never get old.”

On having the offense’s back after critical fumbles:
“Anytime they have a bad drive or a turnover, the defense makes sure to let the offense know we’ve got their backs. When I’m running on the field, I give them that look to let them know defense is ready. It’s a mistake, but we are on to the next play.”
