Boyd provided nightmares for Georgia's defense the first time around.
Head-to-Head: 38-16 Georgia (Last meeting Aug. 31, 2013, 38-35 Clemson)
These two treated college football fans to one heck of a battle back on Aug. 31. The Tigers topped the Bulldogs then 38-35 in Death Valley.
Who would say no to a rematch?
Since then, both teams have looked great. Clemson has won its last four games by an average score of 45.8-12.0 while Georgia has used victories over two Top 10 teams (South Carolina, LSU) to jump back up to No. 7 in the polls.
However, it might be tough for this rematch to even happen.
The Bulldogs still need to navigate through the SEC, with matchups against No. 25 Missouri and No. 17 Florida still remaining. Not to mention, if the team survives that stretch of the schedule, it will then likely have to face a Top Five opponent in the SEC title game.
On the other hand, the Tigers just have to worry about No. 6 Florida State and the ACC title game.
However, there’s no doubt these two would treat fans to quite a showing.
Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray had a disappointing showing against Clemson the first time around—20-of-27, 323 YDS, 0 TD, 1 INT. Expect the senior to look to make up for that performance the next time around.
For the Tigers, quarterback Tajh Boyd will look to repeat his strong performance from the first time around—312 TOT YDS, 5 TD.
This should be the perfect back-and-forth battle with whomever having the ball last likely winning.
