Clemson started the season without a single vote in the AP top 25 poll, now they sit number 5 in the BCS standings. In Clemson history, only four other teams have started 8-0.
Saturday against North Carolina the offensive staff, led by quarterbacks coach / offensive coordinator Chad Morris, helped lead Tahj Boyd to a 6 touchdown performance (5 passing and one rushing). Each of his 5 touchdown passes were to different receivers. In the 3rd quarter alone, the offense went off for 4 touchdowns.
Boyd's success can also be attributed to the great job done by receivers coach Jeff Scott, who already has freshman receiver Sammy Watkins in the Clemson record books for receptions and touchdowns by a freshman.
Dabo talked about it being a special time to be a Tiger in his post game interview.
"It's a special time to be a Clemson Tiger. We have to learn from this tape and just keep doing what we do. We have to empty the tank this week in practice and then leave it all on the field at Georgia Tech."
Clemson will take on Georgia Tech Saturday at 8 Eastern on ABC.
