Going up against the Clemson defense is no easy task, a fact that members of the Florida State offense are well aware of.

Starting tight end Ryan Izzo and starting left guard Kareem Are both addressed the media on Tuesday and the central point of both conversations surrounded Clemson and how to shut them down.

Are’s interview circulated around how to limit what Clemson’s talented defensive line is able to do against FSU’s offensive front as well as how important it will be to get off to a fast start in Saturday’s game, an issue that has plagued Florida State for the entire season so far.

Izzo, on the other hand, praised Clemson for how well they have reloaded this year after losing so many key members of the 2015 defense that led them to be national runners-up in addition to questions on what has limited FSU from finishing drives.
