Tajh Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for another as BCS No. 20 Clemson routed No. 5 Virginia Tech 38-10 on Saturday night to win its first Atlantic Coast Conference championship in 20 years. The Tigers (10-3) clinched their first Orange Bowl berth since 1981, the year they won their only national championship. Clemson won't be playing for a national title this season, but the victory was still sweet considering they'd lost three of four games to close the regular season. Clemson scored three touchdowns on five plays in a span of 4:24 in the third quarter to break open a 10-10 tie at halftime. Clemson became the only team to beat Virginia Tech (11-2) twice in the same season. The Tigers beat the Hokies 23-3 in Blacksburg, Va., on Oct. 1.
