Tell us what you will be looking for from the Tigers on Saturday when they travel to Raleigh to face NCST.

Personally, I will be looking at how many snaps the backup OL will get. Marcus Tate has struggled at times, esp last week against the three-man front, something Clemson will see again this weekend. Let's see what Paul Tchio can do. He played well vs UGA. Let's also see what Mitchell Mayes and even Hunter Rayburn can do.
 
Has to be some imagination used. I get the limitations with the OL, but you’ve got to try something else to at least make the d think something else may be coming.

Agree with all the above, and add: impose you freakin' will on the defense a few times. This crazy idea you have to play only by their terms is so not football to me. When even your slot man is taller by inches than many backs, it's crazy to have almost no passing game. Davis Allen should be a big help in the short and middle field. Like you say it'll take creativity because DJ won't have the luxury of time.

I'm not going to expect Elliott to press his offense. His mantra has always been to play what they give you like a lot of coaches, but he REALLY means it for almost every play.

Miss St QB had all the time he wanted to throw the ball against the NC State defense.
