Associated Press
The ACC roundup …BOSTON ó Jonathan Dwyer ran for 108 yards, scoring the go-ahead touchdown on a 43-yard run midway through the fourth quarter on Saturday as Georgia Tech beat Boston College 19-16.
Getting the game in before the remnants of Tropical Storm Hanna swept through New England, BC took a 16-10 lead when Chris Crane hit Ifeanyi Momah on a tug-of-war touchdown pass with 3:03 left in the third. But Crane was sacked in the end zone for a safety, and four plays after the free kick Dwyer broke free on a pitch around the right side for the touchdown.
Clemson 45, Citadel 17
CLEMSON, S.C. ó C.J. Spiller ran for three touchdowns and Clemson took its first steps back from last week’s loss to Alabama with a victory.
