CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) -- Tajh Boyd threw for five touchdowns and ran for three more scores to lead No. 11 Clemson to a record-shattering 62-48 win over North Carolina State on Saturday.

The Tigers (10-1, 7-1 Atlantic Coast) gained 754 yards, two off the school record. The 110 combined points were just seven off the ACC record set by Georgia Tech and North Carolina last week.

The Wolfpack (6-5, 3-4) led 24-13 early in the second quarter before Clemson scored 42 straight. Boyd was responsible for every Clemson touchdown. The junior was 30-for-44 for 426 yards and ran for 105 yards -- the combined 531 yards set another school record.

The Tigers won a share of the ACC's Atlantic Division title, but the loss to Florida State keeps them out of the title game.
