Chad Morris on the second half playcalling
I asked offensive coordinator Chad MorrisChad Morris

View Full Profile if the offense was conservative in the second half, and he said yes. Morris said that Clemson's field position - or lack thereof - contributed to the playcalling.
"I thought they were able to load up the box a little bit and keep us from running the ball," Morris said. "That was because of field position. We were behind the chains, and that was playing right into their format. We couldn’t create any breathing room in the second half. But yeah, we went a little conservative. We needed something to happen there, and we tried to not make that big mistake. I just wanted us to find that rhythm."
