Clemson leads Georgia Tech 41-24

Georgia Tech came out of the locker room looking like they were going to give Clemson a fight in the second half. Robert Godhigh, who has been the Yellow Jackets' only source of offensive production, ripped off a 65-yard touchdown run to narrow Clemson's lead to 10.

But Tajh Boyd responded, as he has all night, with a pair of long passes to set up Clemson scores. Boyd hit Martavis Bryant for a 33-yard pass that put the Tigers at the Georgia Tech 1-yard line and ran the ball in from there, picking up his fourth touchdown of the night and his first on the ground. On Clemson's next offensive play, Boyd completed his fourth pass of 40 yards or more when he hit Sammy Watkins for a 44-yard touchdown pass. By comparison, the Virginia Cavaliers have had just three passing plays of 40 yards or more during the entire 2013 season.

There was a scary moment on the last play of the third quarter when Boyd went down at the end of a 7-yard run with an apparent injury to his upper body. Boyd needed some assistance getting up from the ground but was able to walk off the field under his own power before heading to the locker room. He has since returned to the sidelines and was last seen warming up.

Boyd blows up GT secondary, CU leads 27-10 at half

Tajh Boyd wasted little time disposing of any concern that Clemson, after settling for a pair of field goals in the first quarter, would struggle to move the ball against Georgia Tech. The senior quarterback absolutely tore apart the Georgia Tech secondary, completing passes of 41, 47, and 76 yards within 8 minutes and 17 seconds of gameplay. Two of those long completions went for touchdowns, the other was stopped at the 4-yard line. But, even then, Boyd was not deterred, hooking up with Mike Williams on a fade route -- perhaps his best throw of the night -- on the very next play, putting Clemson up 20-0.

After the Georgia Tech offense showed no life whatsoever on its first four possessions, their senior tailback Robert Godhigh caught a swing pass and took off running for a 39-yard gain. Godhigh followed that up with a 32-yard run on the very next play, putting the Yellow Jackets right on the doorstep at Clemson's half-yard line. David Sims finished off the drive by plunging into the end zone to give Georgia Tech its first points of the evening.

Following the Yellow Jackets' touchdown, it briefly appeared as though they might have enough fight in them to give Clemson a game, but Boyd responded by hitting Martavis Bryant for a 76-yard touchdown pass to push the Tigers' lead back to 20. Boyd's connection with Bryant, his third touchdown of the night, gave him 96 career passing touchdowns, moving him past Phillip Rivers for the best mark in ACC history.

Clemson up 6-0 on Georgia Tech after first quarter

Clemson was able to string together two long drives in the first quarter but came away with only a pair of Chandler Catanzaro field goals to show for it. Though the Tigers' offense has not yet shown the explosiveness that we've come to expect, their defense has limited Georgia Tech to 3 total yards of offense on its first three drives. The Yellow Jackets' special teams put the offense in a bad spot right out of the gate, fumbling the opening kickoff and falling on it at the Georgia Tech 2-yard line.
