Third-ranked Clemson's defense shows improvement

AP Sports Writer

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson cornerbacks Martin Jenkins and Darius Robinson are glad to finally make contributions on the field.

The two had interception returns for touchdowns in the first half as the third-ranked Tigers (2-0) turned a tight game into a 52-13 blowout over FCS opponent South Carolina State on Saturday.

Jenkins missed last season with a hernia injury while Robinson broke his ankle in midseason and missed the final six games. The friends collaborated on a rap song they hoped would be a Clemson anthem, "We Too Deep." They're much happier after making a difference in stopping opponents and winning games for the Tigers.

Jenkins had a 52-yard interception return TD. Robinson's went for 35 yards. It was the first time in Clemson history the Tigers have had two pick-6 scores.
