TAMPA, Fla. -- Maybe Clemson defensive coordinator Kevin Steele's inspiring speech in the hotel didn't sink in after all.
Georgia Tech's offense just steamrolled through Clemson's defense. That's been the case for most of the game so far, it's just that the Jackets have stalled in the red zone and had to settle for three field goals in the first half (an ACC championship game record for Scott Blair, by the way.) Georgia Tech is doing its usual amazing job of eating up the clock, as that last scoring drive, which put the Jackets ahead 23-13, took 5:32.
Josh Nesbitt scored his 18th rushing touchdown of the season. He's now one behind the ACC record of 19, which Ryan Williams holds a share of. Da'Quan Bowers has a career-high 10 tackles so far tonight.
