Turnovers were something the Clemson Tigers preached leading into the Charleston Southern game.
The defense was determined to do something this week to change the game.
Linebacker Wade Woodaz provided that spark in the second half when he picked off a pass broken up by Jeadyn Lukus and returned it 35 yards for a touchdown.
“We need to score on defense,” Woodaz said about the message. “It just happened to be me. I really thank (Lukus) for that.”
Here’s what else Woodaz had to say about his big play and the big game:
- Woodaz said the Tigers are like “Rocky,” the fictional boxer who always got back up. “Get back up and keep fighting. That’s how I describe this team.”
- The linebacker said he felt like a running back setting up his blocks after the interception. He wasn’t trying to run too fast.
- Woodaz told Will Shipley he felt like the running back after the score.
