Box Score Breakdown: Clemson’s stat leaders in tough loss at Notre Dame

It is no secret Clemson (8-1, 6-0 ACC) struggled in all aspects of Saturday’s game in South Bend and the statistics tell a similar story.

The Tigers struggled all night to build momentum and very noticeably lacked the caliber of physicality to evenly match what Notre Dame was consistently bringing to the field.

Quarterbacks DJ Uiagalelei and Cade Klubnik both had lackluster performances at the helm, garnering a combined 191 yards for one touchdown, two interceptions, a pick-6 and roughly a 67% completion rate.

On the defensive side, Clemson allowed 348 total yards of offense along with five touchdowns in a showing that highlighted the Tigers shortcomings and lack of experience in the backfield.

Check out Clemson Wire’s breakdown of the box score and the stats recorded in Clemson’s devastating 35-14 loss to Notre Dame on the road.
