Shipley ran the ball 20 times for 121 yards in Clemson’s 34-28 win at Florida State over the weekend. He also caught 6 passes for 48 yards. He took on an even larger workload this week as running back Kobe Pace was out with an injury.
For the season, Shipley is up to 567 yards and 8 touchdowns on 97 carries. He’s also still splitting work with Phil Mafah in Clemson’s backfield.
Trotter had a team-high 13 tackles in the win over Florida State. The Noles went with a run-heavy offense this week, and Trotter helped limit their explosive plays.
Clemson has a big game this weekend against undefeated Syracuse. Kickoff is at 12 p.m. ET on Saturday.
