Cade Klubnik called Saturday’s game against Wake Forest his “most inaccurate day” throwing the football.
Clemson still won 17-12 on the heels of a great defensive performance, but the Tigers’ starting quarterback was 18-of-28 passing for 131 yards and no touchdowns or interceptions. He did rush for a 7-yard score in the second quarter.
“I’m not sure what it was. Just little things, a couple of bad throws. It was probably my most inaccurate day,” Klubnik said. “I missed two or three throws that I don’t really miss. I don’t know why. I have high expectations for myself so I’m going to be rethinking those throws all night long.”
Here’s what else Klubnik had to say after the win that improved the Tigers to 4-2 overall, 2-2 in ACC:
On how the game went: “(Wake) had a great game plan coming into it. Super proud of our defense and just excited to get the win.”
On Dabo Swinney tying Frank Howard for most Clemson wins at 165: “To see coach Swinney have that, it’s a remarkable achievement.”
On a 16-play, 75-yard drive: “That’s good offense. That’s good ball right there. To finish with a touchdown is really good.”
On the off-week plans: “Rest mentally. Getting better. That’s the most important thing.”
On handling the final drive after the onside kick attempt: “To finish with that, driving down like that, finishing with the knee is good stuff.”
On rushing for 48 yards on 12 carries: “I haven’t been able to do a lot those (runs) the last two weeks. I got to get on the edge.”
On Wake’s defensive scheme and the lack of big passing plays: “They were trying not to get beat over the top.”
What he wants to work on during the open date: “Continue to work on red zone…coming out with a lot of energy and not taking an off week. We have an opponent in two weeks so we’re getting ready for them.”
