Heisman Watch

Clemson quarterback Woody Dantzler completed 21-30 passes for 207 yards and
two touchdowns, both 7-yard throws to J.J. McKelvey.



He finished with 55 rushing yards on 13 carries (4.2 average) , with long of
21.



Worried in Kansas City?

Clemson freshman wide receiver Roscoe Crosby had a short afternoon, leaving
early in the first quarter with a sprained knee.



He finished with one catch for 9 yards - the first play of the game for the
second straight week. The Clemson staff said after the game that there
appeared to be no swelling in Crosby's knee, and he will be re-evaluated
today.





Career Days

— Junior wide receiver J.J. McKelvey had a big day playing in place of
Crosby.



McKelvey finished with 8 catches for 73 yards, including the first two
touchdowns of his career. McKelvey, a 6-foot-4 junior from Moncks Corner,
had just three catches all last season.



— Wofford receiver Isaac Goodpaster, who had just one catch last season, had
one Saturday for 15 yards and his first career touchdown.



— Terrier running back J.R. McNail rushed for 65 yards in the first half,
easily topping the 43 he had all last season. McNair finished the day with
68.



A leg up

— Clemson sophomore kicker Aaron Hunt nailed a career-high 43 yard field
goal in his only attempt Saturday. His previous long had been 31 yards.



His longest career attempt was a 41-yarder last season.



Stat happy



— Star safety John Leake led Clemson's defense with 12 tackles, while
linebacker Chad Carson and safety Charles Hafley had 11 each.



Defensive end Bryant McNeal had five tackles, four for losses totaling 19
yards.



— Wofford won the time of possession battle, keeping the ball for 32:10 as
opposed to Clemson's 27:50.



— Redshirt freshman wide receiver Derrick Hamilton was productive again in
his second career start, catching four passes for 55 yards.



— Brian Mance had 78 yards on two kick returns, including a 57-yarder which
set up Clemson's first score.
