Dantzler celebrates his touchdown run.

Heisman Watch

Woody Dantzler's quest for the 2001 Heisman Trophy got off to a
less-than-inspiring start.



Dantzler completed 15-25 passes for 154 yards and a touchdown, but rushed for
just 46 yards on 18 carries (2.6 average). He led Clemson's offense across
midfield just once in the second half, and that was on the first possession
of the third quarter.



A Child (Or Children) Shall Lead Them:

Three Clemson receivers made their first career receptions Saturday.



True freshman Roscoe Crosby's was the easiest, and the quickest. Crosby took
a shovel pass on the Tigers' first play from scrimmage and gained 12 yards.
He finished with three catches for 64 yards, including a long of 33.



Redshirt freshman Derrick Hamilton (3-13) and true freshmen tight end Ben
Hall (1-18) also had their first-ever catches Saturday.



Only Airese Currie was shut out.



In a rush

With a 10-yard scramble in the second quarter, Woody Dantzler became
Clemson's all-time leading rusher at quarterback. Steve Fuller (1975-78) held
the record with a career total of 1,737.



Dantzler finished the game with 46 yards on 18 carries, giving him 1,746 for
his career.



Big foot, little foot

UCF dual-purpose kicker Javier Beorlegui had a career-best 64-yard punt in
the third quarter. However, his streak of 10 consecutive field goals, dating
back to last season, ended when he missed a 48-yarder in the second quarter.



Picking his spots

Clemson sophomore holder Jeff Scott's 22-yard touchdown run on a fake field
goal in the third quarter was his third career carry, all off fakes, for 40
yards.



Butterfingers

Each team fumbled six times, with UCF losing one and Clemson two.
