Tajh Boyd ran for the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter and defensive end Vic Beasley followed with a 13-yard fumble recovery score to keep No. 3 Clemson undefeated and on track for next week's Atlantic Coast Conference showdown with Florida State with a 24-14 over Boston College.

The Tigers (6-0, 4-0 ACC) were out of synch offensively most of the game and trailed 14-10 entering the final period. That's when Boyd led the 48-yard drive that ended with his 6-yard rush into the end zone to put Clemson on top.

When Boston College got the ball back, Chase Rettig fumbled when sacked by linebacker Tony Steward and Beasley was there to scoop up the ball and put the Tigers up 24-14 over the Eagles (3-3, 1-2).

Boyd also had a touchdown pass and finished with 334 yards passing to become the school's all-time leader in passing yards.
