Other than when they played Clemson earlier this year, where they lost by more than 2 TD’s, VTech never played anyone this season. I am not sure why they were favored in this game. Clemson is a darn good team with plenty of talent.

I watched the game. Virginia Tech looked a lot like Houston did earlier today - seriously out of whack.

Clemson was definitely on their game today.

Really not hard to stun an over rated team in VT.

first Atlantic Coast Conference championship in 20 years.

I thought Clemson got the ACC title 2-3 years ago when the NCAA took it away from Georgia Tech for some sort of violation. Perhaps they meant the first title they actually had to play and win.

This makes up for having to endure last Saturday’s shutout at Scott Stadium.

There is only one way to guarantee another SEC National Championship.

LSU vs Alabama

My question is the SEC scared of Oklahoma St.?

By the way, I consider the 81 Clemson Defense on the same level as the 85 Bears on a collegiate level.

Few remember them, but they were shutdown...similar to the LSU team this year when they need to be.

As an LSU fan, I agree.

Ala. had their shot.

I did briefly watch the game last night, before heading over to college b-ball, Big East vs. SEC, and Clemson was doing this game to remember a number 91 who past away unexpected in the last few weeks.

Who was this former number 91? Heard he was good as a college football player.

Thanks!

LSU very well might obliterate OU....but, I’m talking about OSU. Big XII Champs. Oklahoma State University. Ride em!

Probably because they lost three of their last four prior games.

The NCAA took away the win but Clemson wasn’t awarded it. Stats now show no ACC Championship winner for 2009.

Glad we won. I was worried for a few.
