The No. 8 Clemson Tigers are in full control of their destiny in the ACC.
After taking care of business against Boston College 36-14 in Death Valley and improving to 6-0, the Tigers, despite the win, are left in further doubt as they are uncertain of the status of starter Tajh Boyd, who had to leave the game late in the third quarter due to a hip injury. His status is still uncertain, and he has been listed as questionable when the Tigers travel to Maryland in Week 7.
But despite the injury, the Tigers managed to step it up on special teams, as Chandler Cantanzaro nailed five field goals and Tajh threw and ran for touchdowns in Clemson's win against a rival that has caused them so much headache since joining the ACC back in 2005. The Tigers performance against the Eagles was good, but they must still improve in some areas to defeat an opponent that has given them even bigger headaches: the Maryland Terrapins.
