Elliott pleased with progression of Lyn-J Dixon

Clemson offensive coordinator Tony Elliott spoke with the media Monday and talked about various subjects including the maturation process of true freshman running back Lyn-J Dixon.

“He has to continue to show up in practice to earn those meaningful snaps. But you see it in practice, he tries to score every single time, just like Travis Etienne,” Elliott said. “As we go down the stretch, as he becomes more comfortable, the biggest thing for him is learning how to pass protect. You can tell coming out of high school he wasn't asked to do that much. I am pleased with his progression and I am comfortable with him being that fourth guy.”

For the season, Dixon has 27 rushes for 298 yards (11.03 YPC) and two touchdowns.

Clemson defensive coordinator Brent Venables talked about some of the outside noise entering Saturday's contest:
