Tajh Boyd Adds to Heisman Hype with Monster 1st-Half Performance vs. Syracuse
Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd is at it again. This time the victim is the Syracuse Orange, a team Boyd has dissected in just one half to further polish his Heisman credentials.
At halftime Boyd had a tally that is outrageous for some quarterbacks at the end of four quarters. Boyd completed 18 passes for 363 yards and four touchdowns as the Tigers took a commanding 35-7 lead.
As ESPN points out, the numbers are not just great—they're a bit historic:
Clemson QB Tajh Boyd is 1st FBS player with 350 Pass yds & 4 Pass TD in a 1st half since Hawaii's Bryant Moniz in 2011 vs UC Davis.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) October 5, 2013
Perhaps the most ridiculous fact to come out of the performance? The yardage and touchdown numbers are his highest of the season as he has failed to throw more than three scores in a game this year and has surpassed the 300-yard mark just one other time.
If there is one negative to come out of Boyd's ridiculous half, it's that he threw his first interception of the season.
We'll let that fly, and it's a safe bet the Heisman voters will as well.
