Clemson wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins catches a 43-yard touchdown pass over South Carolina's D.J. Swearinger (36) and Akeem Auguste in the first quarter against South Carolina on Saturday.

Honor Roll

Xavier Brewer: His end-zone interception gave the Tigers their last best chance. He finished his final game at Death Valley with a career-high 12 tackles, including a sack and a tackle for loss.

DeAndre Hopkins: He tied an ACC record by catching a TD pass in his ninth consecutive game, matching the conference mark set by Virginia's Herman Moore.

Jaron Brown: Three catches for a team-high 68 yards.

Tig Willard: Nine tackles, including 2.5 behind the line of scrimmage.

Garry Peters: He held his own in coverage for most of the game and finished with eight tackles.

Tajh Boyd: Not his best outing by far, but he's been responsible for the Tigers' last 10 touchdowns.

Andre Ellington: He ran hard, and led the Tigers in rushing with 73 yards.

Rod McDowell: Three first-half sprints for 47 yards. He'll contend for the starting job next fall.

Spencer Benton: He averaged 41.6 yards on five punts, and angled two out of bounds inside the 15.

Chandler Catanzaro: He cashed in his only field goal chance.

Spencer Shuey: He rarely came off the field, and finished with six tackles and a PBU.
