CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Tajh Boyd hasn't stopped seeking the perfect performance out of No. 7 Clemson's offense and he's ready to give it a final shot at Death Valley.

Boyd and the rest of Clemson's senior class dubbed the "Dandy Dozen" by then first-year coach Dabo Swinney make the traditional game-opening run down Memorial Stadium for a final time Saturday when the Tigers (9-1) play FCS opponent Citadel (5-6) Saturday.

Swinney says Boyd has elevated the Tigers from a solid program to one that competes for championships.

The quarterback had strongly considered Oregon and Ohio State before selecting Clemson. He's since set 52 school records in three years as a starter. He's the only Atlantic Coast Conference quarterback with more than 10,000 yards passing and 1,000 yards rushing.
