Clemson, S.C. • Tajh Boyd ran for two touchdowns and passed for another, and Jonathan Meeks had a 74-yard interception return score to help No. 14 Clemson win its third straight over Virginia Tech, 38-17, on Saturday.

Andre Ellington had a 12-yard touchdown run and 96 yards for the Tigers (6-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast Conference), who relied on their much-maligned defense to bail them out of this one.

Clemson finished with three interceptions and twice stopped fourth downs to end drives by the Hokies (4-4, 2-2). Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas passed for 207 yards and ran for 99, accounting for two touchdowns. Still, he continually was harassed by the Tigers and threw two of the three picks.

Boyd was just 12 of 21 for 160 yards, 131 fewer than he averaged coming in. —
