Clemson got just about everything it wanted to get back into the chase for a second straight national title.

The Tigers had a dominating win over Georgia Tech, a healthy return of quarterback Kelly Bryant and a couple of losses from teams ranked ahead of them.

Bryant threw for two touchdowns as No. 7 Clemson rebounded from its first loss of the season with a 24-10 victory over Georgia Tech.

Bryant left the Tigers' past two games early because of injuries.

But Bryant showed no sluggishness or lingering of his sprained left ankle or from his concussion last time out as he calmly led the Tigers to their third straight win over the Yellow Jackets.

Clemson still has work left for another championship run.

That starts next week with a showdown for the ACC Atlantic Division against North Carolina State.
