Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd set a new ACC record in the first half of a Thursday night game aginst Georgia Tech. Boyd’s 96th career touchdown pass, caught by Martavis Bryant, put Clemson up 27-7 on the visiting Yellow Jackets. Clemson leads Georgia Tech 27-10 at the half.

Boyd passed former North Carolina State quarterback Phillip Rivers for the ACC career passing touchdown record, which he had tied just minutes earlier with a short pass to Mike Williams.

Clemson jumped out to a 20-0 lead before Georgia Tech managed to get on the scoreboard. Clemson’s defense held Georgia Tech to three punts and a fumble on their first four possessions, and the Tigers offense eventually took advantage with big pass plays. Up 6-0, Boyd’s first touchdown pass went 41 yards down field to Sammy Watkins, his only catch of the first half. the record-breaking touchdown to Bryant went 76 yards.

Georgia Tech needs to win this game to have a realistic chance to play in the ACC Championship Game, but the way this game is unfolding that does not look too promising.

Clemson is already locked out of playing in the ACC Championship Game because Florida State clinched the Atlantic Division for a second straight season. Clemson is in contention for a potential BCS at-large spot though. A win will keep them in the running.
