ATLANTA (AP) — Tajh Boyd said it. So did his coach. Monday night's Chick-fil-A Bowl against LSU is a prime-time national stage for Boyd and Clemson's high-scoring offense. His coaches and teammates see Boyd as the player destined to grab the bowl spotlight. The dual-threat quarterback led Clemson with 34 touchdown passes to tie Philip Rivers' Atlantic Coast Conference single-season record.
