A few surprising results came across the wires on Saturday in another crazy week of college football. One of the biggest results of the weekend will have a direct impact on Boston College, and what Boston College does next could totally change the complexion of the College Football Playoff.

ACC Football Week 12: Second-Best No More.

It is no surprise that Clemson lost to Georgia Tech, a good team in their own right.

What is surprising is that they lost by three touchdowns, and how unfortunate they are that they lost Deshaun Watson again immediately after getting him back.

Cole Stoudt had his worst game of the season in relief of Watson, who left the game in the first quarter with a knee injury.

Meanwhile, while Watson was absent from most of the proceedings, the rest of the Tigers had few answers for the Yellow Jackets. Clemson managed only 190 yards of total offense in a masterful performance by the Georgia Tech defense. Chris Milton’s 62-yard pick-six late in the third quarter sealed it up.

At 9-2, it might be time now to recognize Georgia Tech as the second-best team in the ACC.
