An astounding performance overshadowed by the BcS carnage that followed it has been recognized by the Walter Camp Foundation.

In its weekly release, the Camp folks announced that Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd has been named as its National Offensive Player of the Week.

In the Tigers’ wild 62-48 win over North Carolina State, Boyd set a school and ACC record for touchdowns in a single game with eight (five passing, three rushing).  The junior also set the single-game school record for yards of total offense with 529, 426 coming through the air and a career-high 103 on the ground.

Defensively, Stanford’s Shayne Skov earned Camp honors for his play in the Cardinal’s upset of then-No. 1 Oregon.  The linebacker was credited with 10 tackles, one for a loss, in the win.

    No one seems to be noticing that the Pac-12 has 6 teams in the top 25 BCS rankings. Go Pac-12!!!

    As I was watching the Steelers game last. night, I couldn’t help thinking that if Boyd is around in the third round of the draft this year the Steelers need to take him. He plays a lot like Roethlisberger and could learn under him. Leftwich is spent.
