CLEMSON, S.C. - C.J. Spiller scored a touchdown Saturday in his final game at Death Valley and No. 18 Clemson beat Virginia 34-21 on the day the Tigers wrapped up their first trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference title game.

The Tigers (8-3, 6-2 ACC) won their sixth consecutive game, but had the Atlantic Division wrapped up as they kicked off thanks to North Carolina's 31-13 victory against Boston College.

Clemson will face Coastal division winner Georgia Tech in two weeks at Tampa, Fla.

Spiller had a 4-yard touchdown run and set the ACC's single-season all-purpose yardage mark, surpassing the 2,059 of Virginia's Thomas Jones in 1999.

Virginia (3-8, 2-5) kept things close in the first half, its 21 points more than it had put up in any of its previous five games. However, the Cavaliers were shut out the final 30 minutes and lost their fifth in a row.
