ACC roundup

The ACC roundup …
DURHAM ó Andrew Luck led No. 6 Stanford to yet another strong finish. What concerned the star quarterback was a slow-starting offense that could have placed the Cardinal in deep, early trouble against a more powerful opponent.
Just not against Duke.
Luck matched a career high by throwing four touchdown passes in No. 6 Stanford’s 44-14 rout of the Blue Devils on Saturday.
He was 20 of 28 for 290 yards with touchdown passes of 60 and 3 yards to Coby Fleener, 10 yards to Chris Owusu and 3 yards to Zach Ertz. The TDs helped Stanford (2-0) overcome an uneasy start, roll up 504 total yards and pull away for its 10th straight victory dating to last season.
Clemson 35, Wofford 27
CLEMSON, S.C. ó Clemson coach Dabo Swinney isn’t down about his team’s performance ó and the Tigers shouldn’t be either.
Sure, Swinney acknowledged the struggles of the offensive line and the defensive breakdowns at critical times in a 35-27 victory over Wofford on Saturday. But college football is a bottom line business and Swinney’s happy to be undefeated.
“We got to get better,” he said. “But we’re 2-0 and that’s all that matters.”
Tajh Boyd threw for three touchdowns and ran for another. Andre Ellington had 165 yards and the Tigers defense had a late fourth-down stop to prevent losing for the first time ever to a Football Championship Subdivision school. The Tigers improved to 25-0 all-time against FCS opponents.
Still, it was hard to ignore Wofford’s triple-option offense racking up 272 yards.
Georgia Tech 49, MTSU 21
MURFREESBORO, Tenn. ó Georgia Tech knew it could catch Middle Tennessee State in man-to-man coverage when it scored on the opening play from scrimmage in Saturday night’s 49-21 victory.
Tevin Washington, who threw for two long touchdowns and ran for two more, hit Tony Zenon down the left sideline for a 73-yard TD pass 14 seconds in the game. The quick strike on Zenon’s wheel route, started a 28-0 onslaught .
One week after rolling up over 600 yards and scoring 63 points against Western Carolina, the Yellow Jackets (2-0) proved their triple-option attack could score quickly through the air or grind it out on the ground. Georgia Tech finished with 596 total yards, 382 rushing, in pounding the Blue Raiders (0-2) before a record Floyd Stadium crowd of 30,502 in their home-opener.
C. Fla. 30, BC 3
ORLANDO, Fla. ó Following a somewhat sluggish offensive start, UCF used a trio of fourth-quarter touchdowns to pull away.
