Georgia Tech Beats No. 20 Clemson 28-24
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) _ Reggie Ball threw an 11-yard pass to Calvin Johnson with 11 seconds left to give Georgia Tech a 28-24 win over No. 20 Clemson on Saturday night.
The freshman reached high over the Tigers’ Justin Miller just inside the goal line near the left sideline to haul in his third touchdown of the game.
The winning score came a play after Clemson’s Geoff Rigsby fourth-down snap skipped pass punter Cole Chason, who had to fall on the loose ball deep in his own territory.
The Tigers (1-1, 1-1 Atlantic Coast Conference) still had one more chance. Airese Currie returned the kickoff to the Georgia Tech 31. But Charlie Whitehurst’s pass to Kelvin Grant fell incomplete as three Yellow Jackets swarmed the receiver in the end zone.
The wild game saw five touchdowns in the final 8 1/2 minutes, including three scores by Georgia Tech (2-0, 1-0) in the final 4:36.
