Murray vs. Boyd highlight Georgia-Clemson matchup


CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Georgia's Aaron Murray and Tajh Boyd at Clemson are poised to put on an aerial display.

And if the two record-setting quarterbacks have a good game Saturday when the fifth-ranked Bulldogs play the No. 8 Tigers at Death Valley, the winner will likely become an early front-runner in the Heisman Trophy race.

The seniors postponed careers in the NFL for a final college season. Now they share the spotlight in a nationally televised marquee matchup on college football's opening weekend.

Murray had led Georgia to back-to-back East Division titles in the Southeastern Conference. Boyd helped Clemson reach the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game in 2011.

Bulldogs coach Mark Richt says fans who like quarterback play "will really enjoy" Saturday's matchup.
