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.
VIRGINIA: UVa scored 20 points or less eight times during its 4-8 campaign, and lost QBs Michael Rocco (transfer) and Phillip Sims (academics). Either QB David Watford (4.7 YPA, 3 TD, 4 INT in '11) or redshirt frosh QB Greyson Lambert will start in new OC Steve Fairchild's pro-style offense. RB Kevin Parks (734 rush yds, 5 TD) paces a poor ground game (129 YPG, 98th in FBS), but TE Jake McGee (5 rec. TD) and WRs Darius Jennings (568 rec. yds, 5 TD) and Tim Smith (405 rec. yds 4 TD) are experienced pass-catchers. New blitz-happy DC Jon Tenuta was pleased with 14 sacks in the spring game, and expects DE Jake Snyder (44 tackles), 280-pound DT Brent Urban and an intact secondary, highlighted by CBs Demetrious Nicholson (15 PD) and DreQuan Hoskey (30 solo tackles), to carry a defense that lacks sure-tackling linebackers.

*Clemson-Virginia Preview* ==========================

No. 8 Clemson (7-1) at Virginia (2-6), 3:30 p.m. EDT

(AP) - Clemson was money in the bank last season when it came to scoring in the red zone.

Not this year.

Tigers offensive coordinator Chad Morris has been working to find ways for the country's former gold standard in the red zone to regain its edge when No. 9 Clemson gets inside the 20.

Clemson led the FBS in red-zone scoring a year ago, capitalizing on 56 of 59 chances. Points have been much harder to come by this fall for the Tigers (7-1, 5-1 ACC), who are tied for 58th nationally in red-zone offense as they get set to visit struggling Virginia (2-6, 0-4) on Saturday.

The red-zone issues cropped up again last week at Maryland, where the Tigers settled for three field goals in their first four trips. Clemson was able to break away late for a 40-27 victory, but the problems of getting past the goal line have Morris working overtime to correct.

"While we would've liked to have scored touchdowns every time we got inside the 5-yard line, it didn't happen that way," Morris said.

It has happened fewer and fewer times for the Tigers this season. They've managed 24 TDs in the 37 times they've reached the opposition's 20. Clemson under Morris the past three seasons has used a quick-strike offense to put games away by halftime. Instead, team leaders like quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins have been pressed into action late to secure victories.

"We had some guys that were open, we had some underneath cutters coming that we didn't hit," Morris said, detailing his team's red-zone failures. "That's an area that we've got to continue to emphasize and we've got to get better at."

Clemson looked like its high-scoring, old self for the season's first month, averaging nearly 43 points in a 5-0 start. The scoring problems that began in a 24-14 win over Boston College were exposed to the nation a week later in Florida State's 51-14 dismantling of the then-third-ranked Tigers. During one series, the Seminoles held Clemson out of the end zone from a yard away after the Tigers first-stringers ran eight plays inside the 20.

When the faults resurfaced early against Maryland - the Tigers were up just 19-13 in the third quarter after a fourth field goal from inside the 20 - it set off concern for Morris, who has been accustomed to offensive success since arriving before the 2011 season.

Things eased at Maryland after Boyd and tailback Rod McDowell scored short-yardage TDs in the second to give Clemson a comfortable margin at the end.

Coach Dabo Swinney said the effort was a strong sign the Tigers had put the crushing Florida State loss behind and were pointed toward a special season.

"They responded. We had a chance to take control of the game early (but didn't), and that was disappointing," he said. "But I was really pleased with the way we competed and just kept playing."

Virginia coach Mike London sees a Clemson offense that's been highly productive throughout the season. The Cavaliers faced a similar attack, London said, earlier this year in a 59-10 loss to No. 2 Oregon.

London thought the Ducks had more speed than the Tigers, "but they're comparable in terms of the athletic skill and what their offense allows them to do with those players."

Part of Clemson's offensive issues came from Boyd's sore ankle suffered against Florida State that forced Morris to limit his runs, which have been an effective part of the attack. Boyd still finished with 13 carries, several when he scrambled away from Maryland's pressure.

Boyd banged up his knee against Maryland, but nothing serious enough to keep him from playing in his home state Saturday, Morris said.

"He'll be running," Morris said. "That's part of our offense."

Boyd bounced back after getting held to 156 passing yards against Florida State, throwing for 304 yards and a touchdown. He also became just the third ACC quarterback (North Carolina State's Philip Rivers and Duke's Thaddeus Lewis are the others) with over 10,000 career passing yards.

Virginia fell 35-25 at home to Georgia Tech last Saturday for its fifth straight loss. The Cavaliers have allowed an average of 36.3 points in the last four defeats.

David Watford went 43 of 61 for a career-high 376 yards and passed for two TDs last week, setting school records for attempts and completions.

"Of course I know any of my guys would trade the stats and all the accolades for a boatload of wins, and I would do the same thing," Watford told the school's official website. "It just shows we just have to keep working."

This will be the first meeting between these teams since Clemson's 34-21 home win Nov. 21, 2009.
