Clemson freshman wide receiver Sammy Watkins has been tabbed the ACC rookie of the week. Watkins tallied 196 all-purpose yards in Saturday’s win over Wofford. He returned five kickoffs for a total of 110 yards. He also caught four passes for 56 yards and carried the ball three times for 30 yards.
Watkins has put together two impressive games this season. He caught a touchdown pass less than thirty seconds into his first game last week against Troy.
One other Clemson note, ESPN has put the six day window on the Tigers game against Florida State next weekend. A kick time will be announced sometime before noon on Sunday.
Clemson will face defending national champion Auburn at noon this Saturday at Death Valley.
