Ball State has an offensive style Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris admires.

The 12th-ranked Tigers (1-0) face Ball State (1-0) on Saturday at Death Valley.
The Cardinals are a team after Morris' heart - a snap-and-go marvel that had a school record 36 first downs in their opener last week. Morris liked what his team did on offense, too, in the 26-19 win against Auburn. The group set school records for points and yards gained in 2011 and Morris said his players kept asking to keep pushing the pace in their opener.
''Nobody better get a drink,'' Morris said.
