Defensive line making impact for No. 3 Clemson

Posted: Updated:
AP -

Clemson defensive tackle Grady Jarrett is glad to see the third-ranked Tigers getting attention for their defense.

 The accolades will continue if the unit keeps shutting teams down.

Clemson has held its past four opponents to 14 points of less, something that hadn't been done since the first four games of the 2000 season. And a big reason is the play of the defensive line, which leads the Atlantic Coast Conference with 19 sacks. Defensive end Vic Beasley leads the country with eight sacks.

The Tigers (5-0, 3-0 ACC) hope to keep that defensive success going against Boston College (3-2, 1-1).

The defensive line was considered a question mark when the season began, but Jarrett says the linemen have put in the work and are improving each game.
