Clemson's 300-pound DT plowed through Georgia Tech's defense for his first rushing TD
Clemson scored every which way in the first half against Georgia Tech on Saturday. Dabo Swinney wasn’t afraid to share the wealth, either, allowing 6-foot-1, 300-pound defensive tackle Nyles Pinckney to get his first rushing touchdown in the contest.
Owning a 24-7 lead in the second quarter, Clemson got the ball down to the Georgia Tech 1-yard line when it decided to have Pinckney finish off the drive. He plowed through the Yellow Jacket defense and crossed the goal line to give the Tigers a 31-7 advantage.
Pinckney’s touchdown dance after reaching the end zone was pretty epic, too.
BIG MAN TOUCHDOWN!
Nyles would not be denied…

That’s how you know everything is working on offense.
Clemson wasn’t stopped at all in the first half of Saturday’s game. The Tigers took a 52-7 advantage into the locker room and are well on their way to a 5-0 start in the 2020 season.
