Seminole defense looks to slow downTigers' Watkins
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Clemson wide receiver Sammy Watkins easily blew past Florida State defenders last year.
Watkins caught seven passes for 141 yards and two long touchdowns in the Tigers' 35-30 win over the Seminoles on their way to the Atlantic Coast Conference title.
The fourth-ranked Seminoles (3-0, 1-0 ACC) weren't the only ones who couldn't contain Watkins, who finished his freshman season with 2,288 all-purpose yards and 13 touchdowns and All American honors.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said Monday he believes Watkins may have been the most dominating freshman talent to come into the college game since Georgia's Herschel Walker.
Now it's up to Fisher's defensive coordinator, Mark Stoops, to come up with the answers to slow down Watkins when Florida State hosts 10th-ranked Clemson (3-0, 0-0) on Saturday.
