Clemson, SC (WLTX) -- It wasn't pretty, but sophomore quarterback Tajh Boyd led the 9-1 Clemson Tigers to victory over ACC Atlantic Division rivals Wake Forest, securing a shot at the ACC Title.
Clemson (9-1, 6-1 ACC) will face the Coastal Division Champion on Dec. 3 in Charlotte for the ACC Championship Game. The Tigers last played for the ACC Title in 2009, losing to Georgia Tech, 39-34.
On Saturday, Boyd threw two touchdown passes, but gave up two interceptions for the day. Meanwhile, junior running back Andre Ellington, who missed Clemson's only loss against Georgia Tech (7-3, 4-3) two weeks ago due to injury, rushed for two more touchdowns.
Clemson will most likely play a rematch with Viriginia Tech (9-1, 5-1) for the title, after the Hokies stunned Georgia Tech with a 37-26 victory Thursday night. Virginia (6-3, 3-2) has a chance to win out, beating Duke, Florida State (6-3, 4-2) and Virginia Tech for their ACC Championship opportunity.
The Cavaliers host Duke (3-6, 1-4) Saturday, and meet FSU next Saturday. The Hokies host North Carolina (6-4, 2-4) next Saturday, and will clash with the Cavaliers in their annual rivalry game on Nov. 26.
