Swinney: No. 8 Tigers back on track after big win

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Perhaps the biggest thing Clemson coach Dabo Swinney was happy about Thursday night was his team's positive showing at home in the national spotlight.

Clemson dominated Georgia Tech 55-31 in the first Thursday night game at Death Valley since 2002.

A month ago, Clemson was poised for a nationally televised Atlantic Coast Conference showdown that turned into a 51-14 drubbing against Florida State, raising questions whether the Tigers were a team to take seriously in college football.

In that Thursday night game in 2002 against North Carolina State, a quarterback named Philip Rivers led the Wolfpack to a 38-6 victory against Clemson.

The Tigers rebounded against the Yellow Jackets behind QB Tajh Boyd, who passed for four touchdowns to overtake Rivers as the ACC's career leader.
