WHO PLAYS WHEN? Dabo Swinney hasn't split the first-team quarterback reps to an even 50/50 between starter Kyle Parker and backup Tajh Boyd.
"Kyle's had the majority of the first team reps, but Tajh has had quite a bit, not just this week, but all through [bowl] camp, which has been really good for him," Swinney said.
Each quarterback has received reps with the first-team during team period, scout period and the good-on-good.
"I think we've had a good mix there," Swinney said.
An "ideal" scenario would have Boyd playing in every quarter on Friday.
"That would be a perfect situation, but there are unknowns," Swinney said. "They've got to play well. You're not just going to play somebody to play them—that's Kyle and Tajh. Kyle's got to play well and Tajh has to perform, when he gets in there. A lot of that will be determined with how they play."
GOING FOR TWO: Just one more game remains for DeAndre McDaniel, who needs two interceptions to tie the all-time Clemson record for career picks.
"I want to make sure that I at least put my name by Terry Kinard," McDaniel said.
Kinard set the school record during his four-year career, which spanned 1979-82.
McDaniel tied the single-season record last season with eight.
"Now this year, I'm still trying to find a way to get beside the all-time," he said. "I've still got another game to do it, so I want to try to get it this last game."
WREAKING HAVOC: Da'Quan Bowers is also on the cusp of setting a school record. He needs just one sack to set the Clemson single-season record for sacks, held by linebacker Keith Adams, who had 16 in 1999.
Another sack would make Bowers the ninth player in Clemson history to have 20 career sacks.
He's recorded sacks in 10 games this season, which included a stretch of eight-straight, which was snapped in the South Carolina game.
Bowers plans on introducing himself to whoever's playing quarterback for South Florida, whether it's B.J. Daniels or Bobby Eveld.
"Whichever guys is back there, he better know where I am," Bowers said.
He would set single-season record for tackles for loss by a defensive lineman with three. Bowers has 25. The record is shared by William Perry and Rob Bodine.
