Clemson junior Sammy Watkins was named the ACC Receiver of the Week for the second time this season following a record-setting day in the Tigers' ACC road win at Maryland. Clemson's Brandon Thomas picked up ACC Offensive Lineman of the Week honors.

OFFENSIVE LINEMAN – Brandon Thomas, Clemson, Gr.-R, OT, 6-3, 305, Spartanburg, S.C.
Thomas played 93 of Clemson's 98 offensive snaps with a 90 percent grade and five knockdown block to lead the Tigers to a season high 236 yards rushing and 540 total yards in Saturday's 40-27 ACC road win at Maryland. It was the third straight game that Thomas emerged as Clemson's top offensive lineman with a grade in the 90s.  The left tackle provided the key block on both of running back Rod McDowell's touchdown runs in the fourth quarter, when the Tigers scored 21 points to put the game away.

RECEIVER – Sammy Watkins, Clemson, Jr., WR, 6-1, 205, Fort Myers, Fla.

Watkins set a school record with 14 receptions for 163 yards in Clemson's victory over Maryland, breaking the previous record of 13 catches in a game set by DeAndre Hopkins against Auburn and LSU last year. It was Watkins' fifth game of at least 100 receiving yards this season and the 12th of his career to tie Hopkins' Clemson career record for 100-yard games. Watkins finished the game with a season-high 209 all-purpose running yards, helping the Tigers to 40 points and 540 total yards. Watkins had four catches of at least 20 yards in the game.
