Clemson wide receiver Jaron Brown celebrates when teammate wide receiver Adam Humphries caught a touchdown during the first quarter at Memorial Stadium in Clemson.

Honor Roll:

DeAndre Hopkins: He came up short of the 82 yards he needed to break Aaron Kelly's school reception yardage record, but extended his streak of consecutive games with a TD catch to seven - a Clemson record - and added to his record total for career touchdown receptions 23. He finished with four catches for 59 yards - all in the first half.

Corey Crawford: He spent too much time in Maryland's backfield for the Terps to have a chance to keep their offense moving.

Sammy Watkins: He was a step away from breaking a long return on the opening kickoff, and had four first-half receptions for 60 yards. He sat out the second half with a leg injury.

Adam Humphries: His first-quarter end zone dive resulted in the first touchdown catch of his career. He led the Tigers in receptions with five.

Tajh Boyd: Another solid day's work - 18-of-26, 261 yards and three touchdowns, a performance marred only by two lost fumbles.

Andre Ellington: Tough running against one of the ACC's strongest and quickest defensive fronts - 13 carries for 55 yards and a touchdown.

Stanton Seckinger: Like Adam Humphries, he had his first touchdown reception - a four-yard strike from Cole Stoudt.

Brandon Ford: He showed great concentration in hauling in a 22-yard touchdown pass that slipped through the hands of a Maryland defender.

Stephone Anthony: He came off the bench and led the Tigers in tackles with seven, including one in the backfield.

Grady Jarrett: He exerted consistent pressure in the middle and had two tackles for loss.

Spencer Shuey: In tandem with Anthony, he's made the middle linebacker spot one of Clemson's defensive strengths. He six tackles, including a sack for a 15-yard loss.

Travis Blanks: He had six tackles, including one for loss.

Cortez Davis: He's growing in confidence and competence, adding depth to the Tigers' secondary. He had five tackles against the Terps.

Martavis Bryant: His run of big plays continued with a 48-yard reception.

Malliciah Goodman: He had a sack, forced fumble and a fumble recovery, all wrapped up in one play.
