No. 16 Clemson, QB seek to keep offense humming

      By PETE IACOBELLIAP Sports Writer

      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Clemson coach Dabo Swinney and offensive coordinator Chad Morris have repeatedly said that the 16th-ranked Tigers' attack would not slow down even with new faces in control. The first chance to prove that comes Saturday at No. 12 Georgia.

      Morris has spent a lot time since finishing a second straight 11-2 season pounding his new guys about how few believe they can achieve without record-setting quarterback Tajh Boyd and receiver Sammy Watkins. Cole Stoudt, Boyd's backup the past three years, has taken it all in and taken it to heart.

      Stoudt says he's not cocky, just calm and confident about his first-ever start. He's also and how the Tigers will keep clicking with just three players returning who started in January's Orange Bowl win over Ohio State.
