Georgia Tech tops Clemson to keep ACC title hopes alive

Atlanta, GA ( – Jamal Golden and Chris Milton returned
interceptions for touchdowns, leading 24th-ranked Georgia Tech to a 28-6
victory over No. 18 Clemson on Saturday at Bobby Dodd Stadium.

Clemson quarterback DeShaun Watson returned to the starting lineup after
missing three games with a broken bone in his throwing hand, but the freshman
left the contest late in the first quarter with a left knee injury.

The Tigers held a 3-0 lead at the time and were driving for another score, but
Cole Stoudt entered and everything changed.

Stoudt ran twice to set up 3rd-and-4 at the Georgia Tech 4-yard line, but his
poor pass on a throwback screen was easily intercepted by Golden, who raced 85
yards to the end zone for the game-changing score.

The Yellow Jackets (9-2, 6-2 ACC) dominated from there in their final league
game and won their fourth straight to remain in the hunt for the ACC Coastal
Division crown. Georgia Tech will take next week off before closing the season
at Georgia on Thanksgiving weekend.

Clemson (7-3, 6-2) also concluded its ACC slate and had a six-game winning
streak stopped. The Tigers will close the season with non-conference home
games against Georgia State and the traditional matchup with arch-rival South
