CLEMSON: The return of ACC Player of the Year QB Tajh Boyd (3,896 pass yds, 36 TD, 13 INT) makes Clemson a legitimate National Championship contender. DeAndre Hopkins, the conference's top wideout, is gone, but junior WR Sammy Watkins (708 rec. yds, 3 TD) returns to the nation's sixth-best scoring offense (41.0 PPG). He is poised for a huge bounce-back campaign after his injury-plagued 2012 season, which began with a suspension after a drug arrest. Senior RB Roderick McDowell (450 rush yds, 5 TD) replaces Andre Ellington as the team's top back, but RBs D.J. Howard and Zac Brooks will also run behind a bullish O-Line. The Tigers defense has plenty of talent, especially up front with DE Vic Beasley (8 sacks) and LB Spencer Shuey (69 tackles) patrolling the middle. The one trouble spot is the secondary.
MARYLAND: Injuries forced the Terps to use LB Shawn Petty as their quarterback last year, a huge reason the team closed the season with six straight losses and had the nation's second-worst offense (285 total YPG). However, dual-threat QB C.J. Brown (7.3 YPC, 5.0 YPA career) is recovered from a knee injury, and has an outstanding WR duo in Stefon Diggs (848 rec. yds, 6 TD) and Deon Long, who caught a JUCO-record 25 TD at Iowa Western C.C. last year. The ground game (103 YPG, 114th in FBS) will rely on intriguing sophomore RB Wes Brown (382 rush yds). DC Brian Stewart's 3-4 defense held strong last year (337 YPG, 21st in FBS), but lost six starters. ILBs Cole Farrand (78 tackles, 3 FF) and L.A. Goree (46 tackles) are both back though, as are starting CBs Dexter McDougle (58 solo tackles) and Jeremiah Johnson (8 PD).

(UPDATES with Ross, Brown out for Maryland)

*Clemson-Maryland Preview* ==========================

No. 9 Clemson (6-1) at Maryland (5-2), 3:30 p.m. EDT

(AP) - Clemson offensive coordinator Chad Morris says it's time for the ninth-ranked Tigers to get back to basics.

The Tigers (6-1, 4-1 ACC) have struggled to run even their most basic plays the past two games, Morris said Monday, managing just 38 points combined against Boston College and Florida State. They averaged 44 points the first five weeks of the season.

"We're not playing well. We're not playing well at key positions," he said. "We're consistently inconsistent and that's the biggest thing I see over the past two weeks. We've got to get it fixed and we've got to get it right. And we will."

That starts Saturday at Maryland (5-2, 1-2), where the Tigers have had their problems in the past. Clemson rallied from 18 points down in the second half for a 56-45 win at College Park two years ago but has split its previous four visits there.

Unless things get turned around on offense, Morris said, it could be another long day against the Terps.

Morris said Clemson left tackle Brandon Thomas is the only one on offense playing at a consistently high level. As for the rest, including quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins, he said it's been a challenge to make plays.

"We're about as simple as we can be on offense right now. We're unable to really push the envelope forward," Morris said. "Because for whatever reason, we're unable to be consistent in just the base offense."

Morris, Boyd and the Tigers have been one of the country's offensive leaders the past three seasons with a quick-moving, fast-strike attack that often overwhelms opponents.

But it was the Tigers who were overwhelmed last Saturday night in a 51-14 defeat to the then-No. 5 Seminoles, who scored the most points ever by an opponent in Death Valley.

The critical moments came early, Morris said, both with Clemson's mistakes and its failure to respond when given the chance to get back in the game.

Tight end Stanton Seckinger fumbled on Clemson's first play, turning a first-down catch into a short field that Florida State quickly jumped on with a touchdown. Trailing 10-0 later in the quarter, Boyd was sacked by Lamarcus Joyner and Mario Edwards Jr. scooped up the fumble for an easy TD.

"Florida State is certainly not a team you need to help," Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said.

Still, the Tigers were down just 17-7 and twice moved the ball into Florida State territory with a chance to get their home crowd back into the game, yet came away with no points.

"It's just hard to explain," Morris said.

"We've got one guy playing well and 10 not," he said. "We're, what, seven games into it? That's what's disheartening right now."

Boyd, a Heisman Trophy contender, is sure to take much of the flak after being held to 156 yards passing and throwing two interceptions. While acknowledging Boyd's bad performance, Morris spread the blame around and included himself.

"I could've called a lot better plays," he said. "It's not just on Tajh. We could've blocked better up front. We could've run harder. We had six drops."

Clemson faces a Maryland team hurting from the loss of receivers Stefon Diggs and Deon Long, both of whom broke their right legs in a 34-10 loss at Wake Forest last Saturday.

"We got to make sure we move forward," coach Randy Edsall said. "What has to happen is we have to have guys step up and guys go out there and play with the kind of intensity that you have to play with for 60 minutes."

Thomas, Clemson's fifth-year senior, said his teammates were upset with the Florida State loss, but are confident they'll rebound against Maryland. Thomas said he and the other upperclassmen told Clemson's younger players in the locker room not to hang their heads because the season was far from over.

"We can go to a BCS game. Who knows?" he said. "We've got to finish strong. We've got five, six weeks left. Anything can happen."

That means getting Clemson's offense clicking on all cylinders again, and Swinney is confident the Tigers will respond well.

"When you get knocked down, you're not going to lay down," the coach said. "I guess you could, but that's not the way we think."

Boyd threw for 261 yards and three touchdowns last season as Clemson posted a 45-10 win over visiting Maryland, which got 100 rushing yards from Brandon Ross.

Ross, though, will miss this game with a shoulder injury, and the Terrapins will also be without quarterback C.J. Brown because of the lasting effects of a concussion.

Brown sustained the concussion Oct. 5 against Florida State and returned last week, but he was ineffective and pulled in the second half. Brown was replaced by Caleb Rowe, who will start Saturday.
