Clemson football and quarterback DJ Uiagalelei have a big opportunity in front of them on Saturday against Wake Forest. That opportunity is going to look even bigger after Uiagalelei and the Tigers read Wake Forest’s injury report. The Demon Deacons are going to be playing with a decimated secondary in Week 3. ESPN’s Pete Thamel has the details.
Per Thamel, Wake Forest football’s top cornerback, Caelen Carson, will miss the game vs. Clemson. Not only that, but fellow defensive back starters Coby Davis and Brendon Harris will also be sidelined. That means that DJ Uiagalelei has a chance to take advantage of the Demon Deacons’ depleted secondary in the huge ACC clash.
That’s good news for Clemson football, as their passing offense, which has produced just under 250 yards per game thus far, could use a spark.
