Clemson-Syracuse Honor Roll
Adam Humphries: He got things started with a 60-yard TD catch on the third play from scrimmage, added a 42-yarder later in the first quarter, and finished with three catches for a career-high 119 yards. He made the Orange pay the price for concentrating on Sammy Watkins.
Tajh Boyd: It was another humdinger of a game for the Tigers' senior leader, who never flinched, delivered his passes and picked the Orange's secondary apart. He threw for a school record 455 yards on 20-of-27 passes, and tied his own school mark with five touchdown passes. He went over the 10,000-yard mark in total offense.
Sammy Watkins: He came off the sidelines, where he was nursing a hip injury, to run a 91-yard touchdown pass from Boyd that smothered the last of Syracuse's upset hopes. He finished with four catches for 126 yards.
Martavis Bryant: The big man was back in stride, with three catches for 79 yards, including a 40-yard touchdown.
Stanton Seckinger: He's adding a consistent big-play pass-catching threat to the tight end spot - three receptions for 48 yards on Saturday, including an 18-yard touchdown.
Zac Brooks: With nine carries for 46 yards and a touchdown, he continues to develop nicely as a mainstay running back.
Grady Jarrett: Matched up against a Rimington Award candidate center, Jarrett stuffed the middle, moved the line of scrimmage, and made eight tackles - including two in the backfield.
Vic Beasley: The sack attack continues, with two more sacks (now eight for the season) and four tackles for loss.
Robert Smith: He was solid in the back, and made five solo tackles, with a pair of assists.
Jayron Kearse: He stepped in when Travis Blanks was injured and performed without missing a beat. He finished with five tackles and his first career interception.
Bashaud Breeland: His stat line was modest, but his impact on the game was huge, including an interception.
Darius Robinson: His two picks helped keep the momentum flowing in Clemson's favor.
Shaq Lawson: He's a tough man to keep out of the backfield - a sack and two tackles for loss.
Chad Kelly: He came on late and performed well in front of the Upstate NY crowd, directing, and contributing to, Clemson's final TD drive.
