CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Tyrod Taylor threw three touchdown passes and scrambled for another and surging Virginia Tech captured its third Atlantic Coast Conference title in four years with a 44-33 victory over Florida State on Saturday night.
After the 12th-ranked Hokies (11-2) had their national title hopes dashed in a five-day nightmare of consecutive loses to start the season, coach Frank Beamer's squad recovered by dominating the ACC behind the versatile Taylor.
Now Virginia Tech is headed to the Orange Bowl thanks to its 11th straight win.
Taylor's top target was Danny Coale, who caught six passes for a career-best 143 yards and a score.
Ty Jones rushed for three touchdowns for No. 20 Florida State (9-4), while EJ Manuel had an interception returned for a touchdown.
