WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) A year of criticism didn't shake DJ Uiagalelei's belief that he could lead an offense capable of putting up big numbers for Clemson.
He and his teammates proved that in a shootout road win against a ranked opponent. It's a good thing, too, considering the No. 5 Tigers' margin for error in an Atlantic Coast Conference it dominated for six years looks slimmer than usual.
"I feel like every time I step on the field, I definitely have that confidence," Uiagalelei said after Saturday's 51-45 double-overtime win at Wake Forest. "And I feel like as an offense, I feel like very time we step on the field, I think we can just get better and better and better."
