No. 8 Clemson 55, Georgia Tech 31
Tajh Boyd passed for 340 yards and four touchdowns to break Philip Rivers’ Atlantic Coast Conference career record in host Clemson’s victory over Georgia Tech (6-4, 5-3 ACC) on Thursday night.
Boyd has 97 touchdown passes, two more than Rivers — now with the San Diego Chargers — had at North Carolina State from 2000-03. Boyd left the game and headed to the locker room in the third quarter after hurting his collarbone. But a few minutes later, Boyd bounced around the sidelines, tossing a football and said he was OK to re-enter the game. He didn’t need to, not with Clemson (9-1, 7-1) ahead 41-24.
