Clemson's offense hasn't been shut down often in coordinator Chad Morris' two seasons. The Tigers' 34-13 loss last year to rival South Carolina was one of those times.
Morris says he won't dwell on last year's struggles when No. 12 Clemson (10-1) faces the 13th-ranked Gamecocks (9-2) at Death Valley on Saturday night.
Still, it has been hard for Tiger fans to think about much else, given Clemson's three straight defeats in the rivalry.
The Tigers were held to 153 yards - by far the lowest in Morris' 25 games here - by South Carolina and barely got moving against their Southeastern Conference rival. Quarterback Tajh Boyd threw for just 83 yards and Sammy Wakins dropped what looked like an early touchdown pass that Morris says could've swung momentum.
