3Q update: Clemson 17, Georgia Tech 14


Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

CLEMSON, S.C. -- The only people getting booed here in Memorial Stadium are the officials.

Not a bad sign for the Dabo Debut.

Nor was the 32-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Kelly. Or the 31-yard touchdown pass to Kelly.

Can you believe Kelly scored his first touchdown of the season? Either could I. Looked it up. Yep. First one for the guy who entered the game with 16 career touchdowns and 24 receptions shy of becoming the ACC's all-time leader.

Now he is tied as Clemson's all-time leader in receiving touchdowns with 18.

Clemson is finally using its playmakers in this quarter -- James Davis, Jacoby Ford and Kelly.

Cullen Harper is 5-for-5 passing for 100 yards and two touchdowns in the third quarter. The fans have woken up. The momentum has shifted.

Now this offense looks different.
