Bad news: Stuckey breaks foot, out 3-5 weeks

Ouch. Clemson's top receiver, Chansi Stuckey, broke his foot in practice Tuesday and will miss a couple of key games. That's gonna hurt. (Pardon the pun.)

* The "hell" of Wake week: Clemson's Tommy Bowden certainly knows all about it; this game nearly cost him his job the other year.

* Dean struggles: Clemson kicker Jad Dean is trying to work it out. Well, he'd better do it soon. He's already cost us an undefeated season. He'd better not screw us out of any more games.

* Howard's Rock: Yet another story about the mythical stone in Clemson's stadium.

Clemson 51, La. Tech 0: Sweet shutout

The Tigers recorded their first blanking of an opponent in seven years Saturday. Clemson also had three 100-yard rushers for the first time in decades. The poll voters responded, bumping the Tigers up to No. 15. Read all about it here, here, here and here.

* How good is Clemson? Very, very good, according to our opponents.

* Wake Forest ahead: This week's opponent, the undefeated Demon Deacons, have been quite problematic for the Tigers the past few years.
