Clemson defensive tackle Jarvis Jenkins said he and the rest of the defensive line are glad Nebraska’s defensive front is getting all the attention when the two units are compared.
The Huskers’ defensive front has been responsible for 23½ of Nebraska’s 30 sacks and 54 tackles for losses. It also has four interceptions and 10 pass break-ups. The Clemson defensive front has nine sacks and 46½ tackles for a loss.
"We like that everyone is talking about their defensive line and not giving us a real shot to slow Nebraska down," said Jenkins, who is tied for the team lead in sacks (two) and has a team-high 10 tackles for a loss. "That just motivates us to go out there and be more physical."
CB: Nebraska finished the regular season tied for 25th in the nation in sacks with 30. Clemson has 14 total sacks on the season - at 106th nationally in that category.
