CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Tajh Boyd threw for a touchdown and ran for another before leaving No. 8 Clemson's 36-14 victory over Boston College with a hip injury Saturday that raised concerns about how long the Tigers could stay undefeated without him.

The severity of Boyd's injury wasn't immediately known. He came in leading the Atlantic Coast Conference in total offense and has been the catalyst for the Tigers' first 6-0 start in 11 years.

Clemson (3-0 ACC) got five field goals from Chandler Catanzaro and 117 yards and a touchdown from tailback Andre Ellington to put away Boston College (1-5, 0-3).

The Eagles played without ACC preseason player of the year Montel Harris, who aggravated a knee injury in last week's loss to Wake Forest.
