Kelly Bryant, Clemson handle Virginia Tech on the road 31-17

No. 2 Clemson traveled to Blacksburg to face No. 12 Virginia Tech in what may have been the toughest test left on the Tigers' regular season schedule. Clemson forced three turnovers, quarterback Kelly Bryant accounted for 280 total yards and the Tigers went home with a 31-17 win.

Clemson extended its winning streak on the road to 12 games and has yet to lose this season, something fewer than 20 teams in the country can say. The Hokies entered the game undefeated and had rightfully gained a lot attention since reaching their highest rank since 2011 in the Associated Press poll. Freshman quarterback Josh Jackson was 29-for-44 passing for 251 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He had thrown only one interception on the season prior to facing Clemson. The Hokies were held to 90 rushing yards on 28 carries.
