SC Pass Defense no longer #1 but Clemson is

After allowing North Carolina qb T.J. Yates to throw for 285 yards, USC dropped from first to third nationally in pass defense (149.1 yards a game). After being known as having best pass defense in the nation, the torch is passed to Clemson. It did not help that the Gamecocks were without three of their top defensive backs at the end of Saturday’s game. Starting cornerback Carlos Thomas (neck) and reserve safety Stoney Woodson (hamstring) did not play. Starting safety Darian Stewart (knee) left after breaking up a Hail Mary pass on the next-to-last snap.

The Gamecocks now trail Clemson (135.2) and LSU (149.0).
