Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd pulled over for speeding day before Clowney ticket (w/ video)
Known for their speed on the football field, Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd and South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney might want to slow it down on the highway.
Boyd, the Tigers' senior standout, was pulled over for speeding while driving 84 mph on Interstate 20 in Kershaw County on Friday, Sheriff Jim Matthews told WIS-TV in Columbia. Boyd was let off with a warning.
That was the day before USC star Clowney was fined $355 for driving 110 mph in a 70-mph zone on Saturday on I-77 in Fairfield County.
Both players are preparing for bowl games. Boyd and Clemson will play Ohio State in the Orange Bowl on Jan. 3, and Clowney and the Gamecocks face Wisconsin in the Capital One Bowl on Jan. 1.
