Who is in?

Rob Kinnan-USA TODAY Sports

Only one thing has changed. Check out who is starting below:

Offense

QB
1. Tyler Murphy (6-2, 213, Gr.)
2. Darius Wade (6-0, 201, Fr.)

This might be Murphy's toughest opponent. The secondary has had two games where they have been torched, but Vic Beasley is not a player you want to sleep on.

TB
1. Myles Willis (5-9, 203, So.)
2. Tyler Rouse (5-8, 194, So.) OR Marcus Outlow (5-10, 207, Fr.) OR Jon Hilliman (6-0, 215, Fr.) OR Richard Wilson (5-10, 212, Fr.)

This is easily the best rushing defense that the Eagles have faced all season. The Tigers let up 328 yards to Georgia in the opener, but have allowed only 55 yards on average on the ground.

FB
1. Bobby Wolford (6-2, 248, So.)
2. Sean Burke (5-11, 234, Jr.)

Same as every other game this season.

WR
1. Charlie Callinan (6-4, 220, So.)
2. Jeffrey Jay (6-2, 197, Sr.)
Nat Dixon (6-3, 172, Fr.)

WR
1. Josh Bordner (6-4, 230, Gr.)
2. Thadd Smith (5-9, 168, Fr.) OR Gabe McClary (6-3, 185, Fr.)

WR
1 Dan Crimmins (6-5, 237, Jr.) 
2. Drew Barksdale (5-11, 195, Fr.) OR Shakim Phillips (6-3, 206, Gr.) OR Sherman Alston (5-6, 163, Fr.)

Same starting three, have to imagine that Allston will be out there often as well.

Y
1. Michael Giacone (6-5, 262, Jr.)
2. Louie Addazio (6-3, 253, So.) OR Joel Rich (6-3, 255, R-Fr)

No changes.

LT
1. Seth Betancourt (6-6, 300, Sr.)
2. Dave Bowen (6-7, 291, Jr.)

LG
1. Bobby Vardaro (6-5, 299, Sr.)
2. Jon Baker (6-3, 281, Fr.)

C
1. Andy Gallik (6-3, 304, Sr.)
2. Frank Taylor (6-6, 304, So.)

RG
1. Aaron Kramer (6-7, 293, Gr.)
2. Jim Cashman (6-7, 301, Jr.)

RT
1. Ian Silberman (6-5, 294, Gr.)
2. Dave Bowen (6-7, 291, Sr.)

Vardaro made a huge difference on Saturday, he seems to be the heart and soul of this line. They are going to have their work cut out for them as Clemson's defensive line is no joke. Tigers have 20 sacks already this season.

Defense

DE
1. Brian Mihalik (6-9, 295, Sr.)
2. Malachi Moore (6-7, 274, Sr.)

DT
1. Truman Gutapfel (6-3, 289 So.)
2. Nick Lifka (6-2, 284 Sr.)

DT
1. Connor Wujciak (6-3, 300, So.)
2. Noa Merritt (6-0, 268, Fr.)

DE
1. Kevin Kavalec (6-3, 242, So.)
2. Harold Landry (6-3, 257, Fr.) OR Seyi Adebayo (6-3, 245, Gr.)

Truman is going to get the start, which shouldn't be a surprise as Addazio and Brown have been very high on him this season. He's a former wrestler, with great strength. Other than that there are no changes.

SLB
1. Josh Keyes (6-2, 223, Sr.)
2. Matt Milano (6-1, 220, So.) OR Christian Lezzer (6-0, 210, Fr.)

MLB
1. Steven Daniels (6-0, 249, Jr.) OR Sean Duggan (6-4, 250, Sr.)
2. Connor Strachan (6-2 231 Fr.)

WLB
1. Mike Strizak (6-2, 229, So.)
2. Ty Schwab (6-1 212 Fr.)

Solid game by this crew. Daniels had a big game and Keyes looked dominant.

LC
1. Manny Asprilla (5-11, 177, Sr.)
2. Isaac Yiadom (6-1 170 Fr.)

SS
1. Dominique Williams (6-0, 212, Sr.)
2. Sean Sylvia (6-0, 208, Sr.)

FS
1. Justin Simmons (6-3, 188, Jr.)
2. Ty-Meer Brown (6-0, 201, Gr.) OR Kevin Bletzer (6-2 198 Fr.)

RC
1. John Johnson (6-0, 194, So.)
2. Kamrin Moore (5-11 186 Fr.)

Clemson has a dynamite passing offense, but much of that seems to be on DeShaun Watson. Cole Stoudt's numbers are much more pedestrian. Against Georgia he threw for 144 yards, and 302 against South Carolina St. He was pretty average last weekend against Louisville as well.

Specialists

K
1. Mike Knoll (6-0, 214, Fr.)
2. Joey Launceford (5-10, 190, Sr.)
3. Alex Howell (6-5, 206, Jr.)

P
1. Alex Howell (6-5, 206, Jr.)
2. Mike Knoll (6-0, 214, Fr.)

S
1. Leonard Skubal (5-10, 201, Jr.)
2. Mike Fischer (6-0, 217, Jr.)
3. Austin Stevens (6-3, 256, Fr.)

PR
1. Sherm Allston (5-6, 163, Fr.)
2. Thaddius Smith (5-9 167, Fr.) OR Marcus Outlow (5-10, 207, Fr.)

KR
1. Myles Willis (5-9, 203, So.) OR Sherm Allston (5-6, 163, Fr.)

The kicking game was a mess last weekend. Hopefully the Eagles can turn it around on Saturday.
