​The Clemson football team needs very little to get going. 

They outlasted No. 13 Auburn and ran over No. 17 Louisville, while shutting down the unstoppable 2016 Heisman winner Lamar Jackson, en route to a perfect 4-0 record. 

​​The Tigers have put themselves up there with Alabama, as one of the best teams in the country. This Saturday, they'll face another test with a trip to No. 12 Virginia Tech.

A recent interview with Clemson DE Clelin Ferrell, a Virginia native, revealed some extra motivation in this weekend's matchup. 

The young defensive end grew up adoring the Hokies, but after he chose Clemson over the in-state school, the Tech staff quickly turned on him. 

This Clemson D is the last squad you want to piss off. They'll rally for their teammate Farell, who'll have 20-30 friends and family members in the stands. 

This weekend the Hokies will learn that you never poke the bear.
