RALEIGH — N.C. State's defense spent spring practices and preseason training camp working against the team's new no-huddle offense. That should offer some preparation for third-ranked Clemson's fast-paced attack Thursday night at Carter-Finley Stadium.
Coach Dave Doeren, the Wolfpack’s first-year coach, spent the first couple months after he was hired installing the new offensive scheme. But his coaching staff has also pushed for players on offense and defense to work faster in everything they do. N.C. State (2-0) opened with a win against no-huddle offense Louisiana Tech, but hasn't faced anything as fast as Clemson's attack.
