Cade Klubnik was thrilled to see the offense play “a heck of a game.”
Clemson’s starting quarterback knew he and his teammates needed a strong, improving performance like they one they got in a 48-14 win over Florida Atlantic on Saturday at Memorial Stadium.
It was imperative to build confidence, especially with what’s coming. The Tigers take on the third-ranked Florida State Seminoles at noon on Sept. 23 in one of the most pivotal matchups of the ACC season.
Obviously, it’s going to be a heck of a game,” said Klubnik, who threw three touchdown passes, rushed for another score and didn’t turn the ball over in a game for the first time this season. “They’ve got a great team. Honestly just going to enjoy this game for 24 hours and then on to the next. I’m excited.”
Here’s what else Clemson’s QB had to say after the win:
- Klubnik praised the offensive line for being able to handle the “funky stuff” FAU was doing up front.
- On playing in control the whole game: “I just felt like we looked like us.
- Klubnik on freshman WR Tyler Brown, who had two TD catches: A lot of energy, electric, fast, great route-runnner, ball is in there air he goes and gets it. “He’s a guy I can depend on.”
- Klubnik was especially proud of how Brown responded from a muffed punt, more so than even the touchdowns.
- On the Memorial Stadium atmosphere: Something about Death Valley at night. It’s beautiful. Electric and it’s fun.
- Klubnik was impressed with Hunter Helms leading the offense on an 80-yard drive in the fourth quarter.
- On meeting actor Mark Wahlberg, who hung out in Clemson all weekend visiting his daughter, who’s a student, and speaking to the football team: “I had to get a picture with him.
