The Clemson Tigers have been one of the most impressive offensive teams in the country this season.
The team has gained over 500 yards six times this season and is 5-1 in the ACC Atlantic division, just one game behind Florida State. A chance to keep pace in the conference will be on the line when the Tigers welcome the Maryland Terrapins at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.
Clemson had a huge game last Saturday, defeating Duke on the road 56-20. According to the Associated Press, "Clemson passed and rushed for more than 300 yards against the Blue Devils, only the second time that happened in program history."
Tahj Boyd has been one of the most explosive players in the country, passing for 2,680 yards and 25 touchdowns while also rushing for 350 yards and five touchdowns. He threw for a school-record six touchdowns in the win.
DeAndre Hopkins was stellar in Saturday's win, catching three touchdowns in the first quarter and gaining 128 receiving yards.
Maryland has one of the weakest offenses in the nation, gaining 295 total yards per game. Clemson on the other hand averages over 40 points per game and 324 passing yards.
"It's amazing to see the guys go up and down the field and you know there's really nothing that the other team can do because once they stop the run, we can pass the ball," said offensive lineman Kalon Davis. "If they go for the pass, we can run the ball. It's just a really good thing to see."
Clemson will try to utilize receiver Hopkins against a subpar Maryland secondary. Hopkins has made 62 receptions for 1,037 yards and 13 touchdowns and has also been a deep threat, averaging 16.7 yards per catch
The Terrapins are coming off of a 33-13 loss to Georgia Tech and will have a hard time stopping Clemson after losing leading-tackler Demetrius Hartsfield to a season ending ACL injury.
"We probably could have been a little better prepared" said linebacker Cole Farrand. "But the whole defense was giving 100 percent the entire day and you can't ask for anything more."
Although the team is ranked 96th in passing yards, freshman Perry Hills has been solid in seven games this year, throwing for 1,336 yards and eight touchdowns.
