, QB, Clemson
New Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris didn't think he could win with Boyd as his quarterback coming out of spring practice. But Boyd has directed Morris' spread offense to perfection, completing 61.3 percent of his passes for 1,742 yards with 15 touchdowns and two interceptions. Boyd, a sophomore, ranks No. 16 nationally in pass efficiency (160.2 rating) and No. 14 in total offense (310.3 yards per game).

Freshman of the mid-year: Sammy WatkinsSammy Watkins

Watkins doesn't look like an average freshman and he certainly doesn't play like one. He leads the No. 8 Tigers with 38 catches for 623 yards with six touchdowns. He ranks third in the ACC with 6.3 receptions per game and second with 103.8 receiving yards per contest.

Coach of the mid-year: Dabo Swinney, Clemson
Depending on who you believed in Clemson this summer, Swinney either entered the season firmly on the hot seat or pretty darn close to it. But the Tigers, who haven't won an ACC title since 1991, are among the country's biggest surprises with a 6-0 record. Clemson beat three straight ranked foes, defeating then-No. 21 Auburn, No. 11 Florida State and No. 11 Virginia Tech.
