      Boyd leads No. 8 Clemson past Georgia Tech, 55-31


      CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd passed for 340 yards and four touchdowns to break Philip Rivers' Atlantic Coast Conference career record in No. 8 Clemson's 55-31 victory over Georgia Tech 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 ACC) ahead 41-24.


      Georgia Tech (6-4, 5-3) had feint hopes of winning the ACC Coastal Division, but fell behind 20-0 early in the second quarter and could not catch up.


      Sammy Watkins had touchdowns catches of 41 and 44 yards for the Tigers.
