The No. 8 Clemson Tigers are 5-0 for the first time since 2000 and hope to keep that winning streak going against the struggling Boston College Eagles at Memorial Stadium on Saturday.

Though heavy favorites, the Tigers have struggled against the Eagles the last two seasons, scoring just two touchdowns and none on offense. Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd is off to a hot start, completing 103-of-168 pass attempts for 1,459 yards with 14 touchdowns and two interceptions, leading an offense that is on target to break several school records, including points, total yards and passing yards per game.

Boston College has gotten off to a 1-4 start, losing at home to the Duke Blue Devils and the Wake Forest Demon Deacons to go 0-2 in the ACC. Coach Spaziani's offense has struggled without offensive coordinator Kevin Rogers (leave of absence) and senior running back Montel Harris, who has appeared in just two games and has 135 yards on 31 attempts on the season. Harris became the school's all-time leading rusher in last week's loss to Wake Forest. Without Harris, opponents have been able to key in on sophomore quarterback Chase Rettig, who has completed just 52 percent of his 169 pass attempts for 1,052 yards with five touchdowns and four interceptions. All-American linebacker Luke Kuechly has been a force for the Eagles, leading the nation with 83 tackles.
