No. 9 Clemson struggling in football's red zone

Posted: Updated:

Clemson was money in the bank last season when it came to scoring in the red zone.
    
Not this year.
    
Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris has been working to find ways for the country's former gold standard in the red zone to regain its edge when Clemson gets inside the 20.
    
No. 9 Clemson led the FBS in red-zone scoring a year ago, capitalizing  on 56 of 59 chances. Points have been much harder to come by this fall for the Tigers (7-1, 5-1 Atlantic Coast Conference),  who are tied for 58th nationally in red-zone offense.
    
Those issues cropped up again last week at Maryland, where the Tigers settled for three field goals in their first four trips to the Terps 20.
    
Clemson faces struggling Virginia (2-6, 0-4) on Saturday.
