As Clemson climbs in the national rankings, its players are soaring into the national spotlight, and none more so than freshman Sammy Watkins.
• ESPN says Watkins plays above his age. Bleacher Report calls him a "human highlight reel." (Watkins is also a supportive roommate to running back Mike Bellamy, who is not happy with his lack of playing time.)
• Running back Andrew Ellington, who rushed for more than 200 yards against Maryland, is revving up the Tigers' offense.
• Orange and White examines which players are getting the most snaps this season.
• There were 14 "sickening" plays Maryland ran against Clemson on Saturday. Defensive coordinator Kevin Steele describes them.
• Pre-Snap Read, a fine college football blog that I just discovered, looks at Clemson's season so far.
