Quarterback Cole Stoudt looks to throw downfield

Clemson-S.C. State Honor Roll

Martin Jenkins: His 52-yard interception return for a TD got the ball rolling for the Tigers.

Darius Robinson: He followed suit with a 35-yard interception return for a score, as Clemson went ahead 24-0 midway through the second quarter.

Cole Stoudt: He got an emergency call when Tajh Boyd suffered a minor shake-up, and then took over in the third quarter. His 19-of-20 passing performance set a new Clemson single-game record for completion percentage, and he finished with 143 yards and three touchdowns.

C.J. Davidson: While Stoudt was completing everything he threw, Davidson, the former track long and triple-jumper shredded the Bulldog defense for 63 yards on 13 carries. He finished the game as the Tigers' leading rusher.

Germone Hopper: The redshirt freshman led all receivers with six catches for 66 yards and two touchdowns. His made his first college reception for a score, and later showed some toughness by hanging onto the ball at the goal line after a punishing hit.

Bradley Pinion: He was 5-of-6 on touchbacks, and the one non-touchback S.C. State retuned from five yards deep in the end zone. For two games, he's 12-of-13. He also punted four times for a 48.8 average.

Martavis Bryant: Tajh Boyd went to Bryant early and often, and he hauled in four passes for 87 yards.

Adam Humphries: He finished the game with six receptions, tying Hopper for the team lead, for 45 yards.

Kellen Jones: The sophomore linebacker, a transfer from Oklahoma, got into the thick of the action and recorded a team-high seven tackles, with two tackles for loss and a sack.

Tajh Boyd: It wasn't his sharpest game, but he hit 14 of 23 passes for 169 yards and left the Tigers in command.

Robert Smith: He provided solid back-line play and finished with five tackles, including a sack.

D.J. Reader & Quandon Christian: They were on the front end of Clemson's two interception returns, Reader with a quarterback-pressure and Christian with a deflection.

Travis Blanks & Stephone Anthony: They combined for an early takeaway - a strip by Blanks and a fumble recovery by Anthony, that set the stage for the Tiger defense.

Second Team OL: The Tigers' backups - Isaiah Battle, Patrick Destefano, Jay Guillermo, Reid Webster and Shaq Anthony - paved the way for two first-half touchdown drives, while Kalon Davis got first-team play in place of Tyler Shatley.
