Richmond Times-Dispatch Weekend - - College Football -


Vir­ginia Tech lost to Clem­son 42-35 in last year’s ACC cham­pi­onship game, a loss that — un­til this week — Hok­ies coach Justin Fuente can­didly ad­mit­ted “still kills” him. The Hok­ies won’t be short on mo­ti­va­tion this week­end, but nei­ther will Clem­son. The Tigers’ de­fense be­lieves it came up short in the ACC ti­tle game. It will be out to prove that the Hok­ies’ near miss in Or­lando, Fla., last year was, in its opin­ion, a fluke. This will be the first matchup at Lane Sta­dium be­tween two un­de­feated teams both ranked in the Top 12, and will fea­ture the lat­est kick­off time ever for a Tech game at Lane. Tech has lost its past four meet­ings with Clem­son and hasn’t beaten the Tigers since 2007.
