CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Clemson coach Tommy Bowden says he saw too many things the Tigers need to fix in their opening Atlantic Coast
Conference win. Clemson didn't allow an offensive touchdown in its 27-9 win over North Carolina State. It returned to the national rankings at No. 23.
But Bowden didn't like the tackling technique he saw often while
breaking down game film. He says he plans to go fullbore at practice, increasing collisions to improve skills.
The Tigers take on their second Championship Subdivision team of
the season this week in South Carolina State on Saturday at
Memorial Stadium. It's the first meeting between Clemson and the historically black college in Orangeburg.
