Jackets Clip Clemson

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) - Josh Nesbitt ran for one touchdown and
threw for another as Georgia Tech ruined the emotional debut of
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney.

Swinney was named on Monday after longtime leader Tommy Bowden
stepped down. And while there was plenty of emotion from Tiger
fans, Georgia Tech made the plays when it counted most.

The biggest was Nesbitt's 24-yard touchdown throw to Demaryius
Thomas with 5:22 left as the Yellow Jackets retook the lead, 21-17.

Clemson had been down 14-3, but rallied in the second half on
two touchdown passes from Cullen Harper to Aaron Kelly.
