CLEMSON - For the second straight week, the Clemson Tigers are up against
their biggest game of the season. And for the second straight week, Tommy
Bowden's team realizes how critical this game is.

"Things have been pretty serious around here this week," said Tommy Bowden
after Thursday's practice. "Except for last Monday's practice after we
found out Florida State had won, this week has been pretty much the same
as last week."

That could be a good thing considering Clemson's 44-10 win over Wake
Forest this past Saturday.

With Boston College coming Death Valley and the ACC Atlantic Division
Title on the line, the Tigers are pulling out all the stops, including
putting Willy Korn at scout team quarterback. Bowden has been pleased
with his performance this week.

"He's done a good job. He's not able to throw 100% because of his
shoulder, but he's been good considering the circumstances."

Korn has been doing his best to imitate Boston College quarterback Matt
Ryan. Bowden said that Ryan throws the ball about 55 times per game, but
about 50 of those are short to intermediate in range.

"Even though their quarterback throws the ball short to intermediate
distances a lot of the time, he's still very accurate. He's accurate on
his long throws also."

Bowden and his staff have a day and a half left to prepare for Matt Ryan
and Boston College. With the biggest game in Death Valley in 16 years
looming, you can bet that they will spend every last minute getting the
team ready battle.
