Clemson Vs. Virginia Tech Halftime Score: Tajh Boyd Shaky, But Tigers Lead

If you told a Virginia Tech Hokies fan that Clemson Tigers quarterback Tajh Boyd would have already thrown 16 incompletions and an interception in the first half, your terms would be accepted and everyone would eat turkey sandwiches with smiles. But Clemson's defense has allowed only 137 yards and three points, and the Tigers lead, 10-3.

That lone touchdown came on an Andre Ellington one-yard lunge that concluded a nine-play, 48-yard drive. Boyd does have 112 yards passing, which is, well, way more than anybody else has mustered so far in this game. Logan Thomas is only six-of-14 for 38 yards passing. Can you tell there's a weather element?

In a game that's supposed to be Clemson's chance to prove it's for real for real and not just really good at home -- so far, so good.
