CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd threw for a career high 397 yards and DeAndre Hopkins had 173 yards receiving as No. 15 Clemson beat Georgia Tech 47-31 on Saturday.
The shootout expected with two struggling defenses materialized. The Tigers (5-1, 2-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) gained 601 yards, while the Yellow Jackets (2-4, 1-3) gained 483 yards.
Boyd threw for two touchdowns, including a 35-yard touchdown to Hopkins that put Clemson up 38-31 with 10-29 left in the game.
Georgia Tech bobbled the kickoff and started its next possession at the 2 yard line. Tigers linebacker Spencer Shuey sniffed out an option pitch two plays later for a safety that crushed the Yellow Jackets' chances. It was the first time either team led by more than a touchdown.
