Jamal Golden returned an interception 85 yards for a touchdown, and No. 24 Georgia Tech beat No. 18 Clemson 28-6 on Saturday.

Clemson quarterback Deshaun Watson did not return after a first-quarter knee injury. Cole Stoudt threw three interceptions after replacing Watson, including one Chris Milton returned 62 yards for a touchdown.

With the loss by Clemson (7-3, 6-2 Atlantic Coast Conference), No. 2 Florida State clinched the ACC's Atlantic Division before playing Miami on Saturday night.

Justin Thomas' 65-yard run set up his 5-yard touchdown pass to DeAndre Smelter in the third quarter as Georgia Tech (9-2, 6-2) earned its fourth straight win and kept its hopes alive in the ACC's Coastal Division.

Georgia Tech fans rushed to the field after the win.
