Clemson running back James Davis has been named the national offensive player of the week by the Walter Camp Foundation. Each week the foundation names and offensive and defensive player of the week. The defensive player of the week was Ameer Ismail of Western Michigan.
Davis rushed for a career-best 216 yards and two touchdowns as
12th-ranked Clemson defeated 13th-ranked Georgia Tech, 31-7 on
Saturday evening at Death Valley. Davis scored on runs of two and
five yards and had a pair of runs over 50 yards in gaining the most
