Quarterback Tajh Boyd is ready to get himself and the offense of the third-ranked Clemson Tigers back in rhythm after a pair of so-so showings.
Clemson (3-0, 1-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) got away with the drop-offs against South Carolina State and North Carolina State in its past two games. Boyd hopes to crank things up Saturday when Wake Forest (2-2, 0-1) comes to Memorial Stadium.
Boyd spent the offseason as one of the most hyped players in college football based on his record-setting seasons and his decision to pass on the NFL for a final year with the Tigers. And while Boyd accounted for five touchdowns in a 38-35 season-opening victory over then fifth-ranked Georgia, he's looked off-target and out of synch at times in Clemson's past two outings.
Boyd rallied Clemson past the Wolfpack in the second half, connecting on 9-of-11 passes for 100 yards and touchdowns of 30 and 15 yards to Martavis Bryant. Still, Boyd knows he and the offense can and should do better.
