The swagger is back in the Clemson offense. The Tigers lost their offensive mojo in the wake of the Florida State debacle. But they put together four consecutive electric offensive quarters from the end of the Maryland game thru the third quarter at Virginia, and they now believe they are back in unstoppable mode.
During that span the Tigers scored on 9 of 16 possessions, and keep in mind the starters were out by the middle of the third quarter of the Virginia game.
Quarterback Tajh Boyd has, of course led the way and is now the all time leader in touchdown responsibility in the ACC. Sammy Watkins is building a late case for Heisman Trophy consideration, and Rod McDowell has been a sparkplug on the ground.
Offensive coordinator Chad Morris has been pushing his unit to play sharp and eliminate the turnovers, the drops and the penalties that have popped up throughout the season. Except for the one interception thrown by Boyd, Morris got a very clean performance from his group in Charlottesville.
The Tigers are now 13th in the country in total offense at 507 yards per game, and they are 16th in scoring at 39.8 points per game.
