Tajh Boyd: Not only is he rewriting the Clemson record book and playing his way into the thick of the Heisman conversation, he's maturing as a quarterback and a leader. He wasn't sharp early, but ended up passing for 397 yards - a career best and second in school history - and ran for 63 yards on 15 carries. His 460 yards included big play after big play, many in crucial third-down situations. And he caught a two-point conversion pass.
Nuk Hopkins: Seven receptions for 173 yards two more touchdowns. Defenses are having a hard time keeping him in front of them. His two-point conversion toss to Boyd was one of the game's biggest plays.
Sammy Watkins: By his standards, a quiet day - six catches for 42 yards, with nothing longer than nine yards; but Georgia Tech's defense had to account for him on every play.
Andre Ellington: It was a workhorse day for the ACC's leading rusher - 82 yards on 24 carries, and he'll likely pay for it with whirlpool time on Sunday. His longest play was a 40-yard catch-and-run.
Chandler Catanzaro: Continued perfection - field goals of 23, 20 and 21 yards salvaged points from missed TD opportunities, in the process extending his school-record streak to 19.
Spencer Shuey: He was on the field often in key situations, and chased down the pitch in the end zone for safety that gave Clemson some hard-earned breathing room. "We had been preparing for that play all week," Shuey said. "I got a good read and a good jump on the ball."
Jaron Brown: Just one catch, but a big block on the Boyd-to-Ellington 40-yard connection.
Spencer Benton: Call him Mr. Touchback - six out of nine, with the others near the goal line.
Rod McDowell: Tough running inside the tackles, a sprint to set up his own one-yard touchdown, and a 23-yard wheel route reception.
Tig Willard: He may have missed some tackles, but ended up at the top of Clemson's list with eight stops.
DeShawn Williams & Grady Jarrett: Tough, relentless and resilient in the middle. Jarrett's fumble recovery helped the Tigers break out of a back-and-forth slugfest.
Bashaud Breeland: He made a critical cover play on a deep pass, moments before leaving the game with an ankle injury.
Xavier Brewer: While the Tigers often struggled to cover Tech's option pitch, he made two big stops on the edge.
Josh Watson: Tigers' full rush on Tech's final field goal try resulted in Watson's block. "They were kicking low line drives," he said. "We knew we could get our hands on it at the beginning of the game."
