“No excuses on why I didn’t score, but we’ve got to finish in the red zone,” Benson said. “That’s where we’re at right now as an offense. I wish I would’ve scored. … It would’ve been good momentum. When we’re in the red zone, we’ve got to score.”
Benson finished with 129 yards on 16 carries as Clemson broke away for a comfortable 24-10 win. At halftime, Benson had 120 yards rushing, while the team had 110 total yards.
“KirVonte ran hard,” Johnson said. “He ran hard. … You know, there wasn’t a whole lot of room. We had a hard time cutting them off.”
