QB Tajh Boyd

Clemson, Soph.

Last week: 23-of-40 passing for 295 yards, one TD and two INTs in 31-17 loss to Georgia Tech.

Season (nine games): 195-of-318 passing for 2,674 yards, 25 TDs and five INTs; 89 rushes for 164 yards and four TDs.

Clemson's chances at a BCS title, and ultimately a Heisman campaign that was building steam fell, apart on Saturday with a loss to the Yellow Jackets. After accounting for 10 TDs and just one pick over the previous two games, Boyd had more turnovers (two) than scores (one) for the first time this season. Aside from the third quarter, when he had 179 of his 295 passing yards, he failed to do much damage against the ACC's top-rated pass defense.

Next up: Saturday, Nov. 12 vs. Wake Forest
