Clemson defense doesn't want to surrender top spot

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Defensive coordinator Brent Venables said the Clemson defense worked too hard to get to No. 1 to give up simply because it lost eight starters.

The defense had been a college football joke - remember West Virginia's 70-33 Orange Bowl win after the 2011 season? - when Venables was hired to toughen it up. No one's laughing these days as Clemson led the country with just 260 yards a game allowed last fall.

A year ago, it was ex-offensive coordinator Chad Morris challenged with replacing the stars of Clemson's record-setting offense such as receiver Sammy Watkins and quarterback Tajh Boyd. Now, it's Venables rebuilding the nation's best group.
