Clemson uses goal-line stand to hold off Georgia Tech

The game was delayed nearly two hours just before the half because of the threat of lightning around Memorial Stadium.

CLEMSON, S.C. — Will Shipley ran for two touchdowns and No. 6 Clemson survived a wild finish to escape Georgia Tech with a 14-8 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday night. 

Shipley had two scoring runs of 3 yards, the last coming midway through the fourth quarter as the Tigers needed a goal-line stand in the final seconds to escape close call from the Yellow Jackets in the ACC opener for both teams.

Clemson's defense has not given up a touchdown in its three games this season as its offense continues to search for a successful rhythm.
