Jonathan Meeks’ pick-six highlights big day for Clemson D vs. VT

Clemson’s defense stymied Virginia Tech in the Tigers win over the Hokies Saturday afternoon at Memorial Stadium.

In a game where its offense uncharacteristically struggled, Clemson’s defense rose to the occasion, coming up with a season-high three interceptions and holding Virginia Tech to just seven second-half points in a 38-17 win Saturday on Military Appreciation Day at Memorial Stadium.  The win marked the 11th straight at home for the No. 14 Tigers (6-1, 3-1 ACC), which tied a school record that was last accomplished in 1991, as Dabo Swinney’s team is now 4-0 at Death Valley this season after going 7-0 at home in 2011.
