From the moment Virginia Tech coach Frank Beamer shook hands with Clemson's Dabo Swinney after a 23-3 loss, Beamer hoped the Hokies would get a rematch.
They will — Saturday's ACC championship game. And things look much different now.
The No. 5 Hokies (11-1, 7-1) haven't lost since that Oct. 1 game and played their most complete game Saturday, a 38-0 victory against Virginia.
The No. 21 Tigers (9-3, 6-2) started 8-0, but have lost three of four, including a 34-13 loss to South Carolina on Saturday night.
Virginia Tech returns to the ACC title game for the fourth time in five years. Clemson lost to Georgia Tech in the 2009 game.
