Mickens, a senior, has racked up 12 tackles and a pass deflection so far this season. Briningstool, a junior, has pulled in 10 catches for 90 yards and a touchdown. Shipley, a junior, has racked up 292 yards and a touchdown. Swanson, a senior, is averaging 47.7 yards per punt with a long of 62 yards.
Clemson will be looking to bounce back from last week’s overtime loss to Florida State. The Tigers came just shy of getting a huge upset, but after missing a field goal the Seminoles took the game in overtime.
It will be a tough task on Saturday as Syracuse comes into the game undefeated and looking to stay that way. Last week, Syracuse took down Army. The Orange are looking for a signature win before getting into two tough games against Florida State and North Carolina.
