Korn in charge at Clemson's practice

CLEMSON, S.C. - Clemson returned to the practice field Sunday with a new starting quarterback in freshman Willy Korn.

With the Tigers season slipping away after two straight defeats, coach Tommy Bowden decided Friday to sit fifth-year senior Cullen Harper.

Harper was picked the preseason favorite to win Atlantic Coast Conference player of the year this summer. Clemson was also the preseason choice to take its first ACC crown in 17 years. However, consecutive losses to Maryland and Wake Forest seriously dented those hopes.

The players were given Friday and Saturday off after the 12-7 loss to the Demon Deacons.

Clemson (3-3, 1-2 ACC) faces Georgia Tech at Death Valley on Saturday.
