CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va.-- Clemson quarterback came back to his home state and threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to help No. 9 Clemson roll over Virginia 59-10.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Tajh Boyd threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score and No. 9 Clemson broke the game open with three touchdowns in the last 4:18 of the first half in a 59-10 victory against Virginia on Saturday.


The Hampton, Va., native became the Atlantic Coast Conference's career leader in touchdown-making with a 33-yard pass to Sammy Watkins to start the scoring for the Tigers (8-1, 6-1 ACC). It broke a tie at 112 TDs with North Carolina State's Philip Rivers. Boyd later added TD throws of 10 yards to Roderick McDowell and 96 yards to Watkins, and scored on a 1-yard run 13 seconds before halftime to make it 35-7.

Virginia (2-7, 0-5) lost its sixth in a row and for the 15th time in its last 19 games. It also suffered its second 59-10 loss at home this season, having lost by the same score against No. 2 Oregon in the second week of the season.
