ACC Championship 2011 Score: Clemson Takes Command, Leads 31-10

At halftime, the ACC Championship Game between Virginia Tech and Clemson was as close as you could get -- tied at 10. It is not so close anymore.

Clemson has started off the second half by thrashing Virginia Tech from one side of the field to the other, with the result that the Tigers have now scored 21 unanswered points and seem bound for the Orange Bowl barring a miraculous Virginia Tech comeback.

After scoring on their first drive of the half, Clemson followed it up with a "drive" that consisted entirely of a 53-yard bomb from Tajh Boyd to Sammy Watkins to move the lead to 24-10. Virginia Tech then did what the Hokies have done pretty much all half -- a three-and-out.

Clemson followed up with a pedestrian drive that took them all of three plays -- an incompletion by Boyd and then runs of 12 and 29 yards by Andre Ellington -- to make the already big lead look close to insurmountable the way the Hokies are playing tonight.
