Spiller earns honor; 6-day option for UVa

Clemson senior running C.J. Spiller earned his third player of the week nod by rushing for a career-high 165 yards on 22 carries (7.5 yards per rush), hauling in three passes for 67 yards—including a 58-yard touchdown—and totaling 71 yards on three kickoff returns in Clemson's 40-24 win against Florida State.

In addition to his 58-yard touchdown reception, Spiller carried the ball for a five-yard touchdown run to seal the win for the Tigers, and has scored in all nine of Clemson's games this season.
