Honor Roll...

Tajh Boyd: He overcame a shaky start and lit up the night, and continued rewriting the Tigers' offense record book. He was responsible for eight touchdowns - five passing the three rushing - and broke Woody Dantzler's school total offense record with 529 yards.

Sammy Watkins: He set a new career high with 11 first-half receptions for 110 yards.

Brandon Ford: He caught two touchdown passes, boosting his season total to eight and tying Dwayne Allen's year-old record by a Clemson tight end.

DeAndre Hopkins: He hauled in a 62-yard touchdown pass from Boyd, in the process becoming Clemson's all-time leader in reception yardage.

Adam Humphries: With six catches, he figured heavily into the Tigers' attack.

Andre Ellington: He rushed for 122 yards on 22 carries, and had a 50-yarder called back by penalty.

Martavis Bryant: His big-play streak continued with a 40-yard touchdown reception.

Spencer Shuey: He led the Tigers with nine unassisted tackles and shared the team lead with 10 total.

Xavier Brewer: He matched Shuey with 10 stops and broke up three passes.

Malliciah Goodman: His fumble-causing sack of Mike Glennon late in the second period was one of the game's turning points.

Vic Beasley: He was hard to handle from start to finish, and added three sacks to his team-leading total and forced a fumble.

Rashard Hall: With the Wolfpack leading and driving for more, he snared his 14th career interception in the end zone. It was the 17th takeaway of his career.

Spencer Benton: He recorded his 28th career tackle on kickoff coverage.

Chandler Catanzaro: Field goals 46 and 43 yards put the Tigers on top early.

Tig Willard: He also shared the team lead with 10 tackles, and had two quarterback hurries.

Grady Jarrett: He made three tackles and blocked a field goal.

Don't forget Grady Jarrett tipping the field goal attempt. I think he deserves honor roll for that.
