ACC Saturday Football

Ryan Williams
VIRGINIA TECH 31, MIAMI 17 – Ryan Ryan Williams ran for 142 yards and two touchdowns, including a career-long 84-yarder with 13:24 remaining, as No. 14 Virginia Tech beat No. 24 Miami Saturday to clinch the ACC's Coastal Division title. The Hokies (9-2, 7-0) won their ninth straight, the program's longest streak since 1999, and will get an opportunity to play their way into the Orange Bowl in Miami's home stadium Jan. 3.

Danny Coale added four catches for 83 yards and a touchdown for the Hokies, who gave up 464 yards but intercepted Miami freshman quarterback Stephen Morris three times in the final 9 minutes.

T.J. Graham #6
N.C. STATE 29, NORTH CAROLINA 25 – Owen Spencer caught a tipped ball in the end zone for a touchdown on fourth down and T.J. Graham returned a punt 87 yards for another score to help NC State rally past rival North Carolina 29-25 on Saturday.

Russell Wilson threw two touchdown passes for the Wolfpack (8-3, 5-2 ACC), including the improbable 2-yard score to Spencer late in the third quarter. With the win, NC State put itself in position to claim the league's Atlantic Division title and earn a spot in the ACC Championship Game, needing only a win next weekend at Maryland.

BOSTON COLLEGE 17, VIRGINIA 13 – Montel Harris carried 24 times for 114 yards, including a go-ahead 4-yard touchdown late in the third quarter, to lift surging Boston College to bowl eligibility with a 17-13 victory over Virginia on Saturday.

The win was the fourth straight for the Eagles (6-5, 4-4 ACC) and makes them bowl eligible for the 12th straight season. Virginia falls to 4-7, 1-6 ACC.

Tevin Washington #17

GEORGIA TECH 30, DUKE 20 – Mario Butler returned an interception 85 yards for a touchdown, Tevin Washington threw a 79-yard scoring pass to Stephen Hill and Georgia Tech beat Duke 30-20 on Saturday to ensure eligibility for its 14th straight bowl appearance.

CLEMSON 30, WAKE FOREST 10 – Kyle Parker threw two touchdown passes, Jamie Harper rushed for 142 yards and Clemson beat Wake Forest on Saturday, giving the Tigers bowl eligibility for teh 12th straight season.They helped the Tigers (6-5, 4-4 ACC) win their first road game of the season and reach the 6-win mark for the 12th straight year.

Christian Ponder #7
 FLORIDA STATE 30, MARYLAND 16 – Christian Ponder threw for 170 yards and a touchdown, and Florida State beat Maryland night to remain in the hunt to play in the ACC title game.

Florida State (8-3, 6-2) has completed the ACC portion of its schedule and can finish no worse than tied atop the Atlantic Division. But if North Carolina State (8-3, 5-2) defeats Maryland on Saturday, the Wolfpack would gain a share of first place and would win the tiebreaker because of their 28-24 win over FSU last month.

The Terrapins (7-4, 4-3) were eliminated from contention. Maryland needed to beat the Seminoles and Wolfpack to win the division crown for the first time.
