Clemson's Boyd leads ACC players of the week

Posted November 5, 2012

— After leading Clemson to a 56-20 rout of Duke Saturday, Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd was named the ACC Offensive Back of the Week Monday.

Boyd was one of two Tigers honored by the league Monday after going 16-for-23 for 344 yards and five touchdowns. Boyd also added a touchdown on the ground giving him six on the day, the most by a player in the ACC all year.

The 718 total yards produced by Clemson was the second most in a single game in school history and the most by any ACC team this season.

Clemson lineman Brandon Thomas was also given a weekly honor at his position.

Wake Forest wide receiver Michael Campanaro set a school record with 16 receptions Saturday in a 28-14 win over Boston College and was named the league’s top receiver for the week. Campanaro racked up three touchdowns on 123 yards receiving as well.

Wake Forest corner back Kevin Johnson shared weekly accolades with Virginia’s Maurice Canady after a seven-tackle one-interception game. Canady, a freshman, also had seven tackles and an interception against NC State as he was making his first career start.

Virginia defensive lineman Chris Brathwaite had two sacks, two and a half tackles for loss and forced a fumble in the Cavaliers 33-6 win over NC State and was rewarded with a weekly honor also.

Othe weekly players of the week for their positions were Georgia Tech linebacker Jeremiah Attochu, Miami special teamer Gabe Terry and Miami freshman Duke Johnson.

    Boyd has looked pretty good recently. I think he's going to shine as this season finishes. I expect Clemson to make it to a BCS bowl this post season.

    Clemson looked awesome against Duke. It helps to have a 30+lb advantage on the line. In a ddition, it looked like Clemson receivers had about a 2 step advantage on Duke defenders.

    This game was not match! Boyd had a great night-throwing long almost at will.

    He earned ACC Player of the Week!!

    Boyd has played as well as any QB in the Country lately. He has set records down there this season. He's not through yet either. Watkins can make any QB look great, but Hopkins looked a lot like Watkins against Duke. Boyd had some great runs this season too. VT sacked Boyd 5 times two weeks ago. A shame that we had 4 TO's. Sorry, I had to put that in.
