Clemson now has the No. 2 defense in the country

After FSU's win over Louisville Thursday night, Clemson moved up to No. 2 in total defense behind Stanford. FSU racked up 574 yards on Louisville to drop them from No. 1 to No. 6 overall.

Clemson will have a chance to be the No. 1 defense after this weekend with Stanford playing at Oregon while the Tigers are off.
