Whitehurst was 27-38 for 287 yards in the 2002 game. The 27 completions were the most ever by a Clemson player against South Carolina. Last year he was 18-26 for 302 yards and four touchdowns. He also had six rushes for 43 yards, giving him 345 yards of total offense. The 302 passing yards were the most ever by a Clemson quarterback against South Carolina.
CB Justin Miller -- Miller has three interceptions this year, but his major contribution has been in the return game. He averages 13.2 yards on punt returns with a long of 69 and leads the ACC in kickoff returns with his 33-yard average, with two returned for touchdowns.
LB Leroy Hill -- The senior is first in the ACC in sacks with eight, tied for first in tackles for loss with 16, and fifth in tackles in the ACC with an average of 9.2 stops per game.
RB Demetris Summers -- Between injuries and missed opportunities, Summers is only 12th in the SEC in rushing with 473 yards and one touchdown on 81 carries over eight games, but he still is one of the most dangerous players on the field.
WR Troy Williamson -- Despite catching just one pass for seven yards last week, Williamson still leads the SEC in receiving yards per game and ranks seventh in receptions per game, with 40 catches, 809 yards, seven TDs and 20.2 yards per catch.
FS Ko Simpson -- One of the SEC's top freshmen, Simpson ranks second on the team lead in tackles with 55 stops, 46 solos, and leads the nation with six interceptions, including two in the past two games.
