It's been 20 long years, but the Tigers finally made it back.

After four weeks of disappointment, doubt and draining confidence, the Tigers reverted back to the first eight weeks of the season. They defeated the Virginia Tech Hokies 38-10 in an ACC Championship rematch.

Quarterback Tajh Boyd looked as good as he has for most of the season, running back Andre Ellington continues to look healthier than ever and most of all, the defense played unarguably its best game all season when it counted.

Head coach Dabo Swinney has this team and the fan base believing: He has completely turned this team around from 2010. This is nowhere near the 6-7 team Clemson Tiger fans had to endure last year.

Swinney and the team overcame great odds to win this football game. And they did it with a large number of freshmen on the active roster.

With this victory, the Tigers are heading to the Orange Bowl in Miami, Florida to face the West Virginia Mountaineers in what will surely be an interesting match up for these two teams.
