Clemson Survives As Tide Rolls

Jonathan Grant | November 1st, 2020

The Clemson Tigers came into Saturday in a unique position. For the first time in a long time, they were going to be without starting QB- and Heisman contender- Trevor Lawrence under center. Despite not having their influential man, they were able to shake off pesky Boston College to remain unbeaten via a 34-28 win. While the score doesn’t look particularly impressive, it must be said that this is a big deal for them, as it keeps them unbeaten and is likely to see them remain at #1.

Not many teams could do without a QB that good, and they managed to do so against an up-and-coming team. Lawrence, who will definitely miss the Notre Dame game next weekend now, was replaced by DJ Uiagalelei, and not much looked different. He was great, throwing for 342 yards and a couple of TD’s, as well as scampering for one. Meanwhile, Travis Etienne racked up over 200 yards of total offense. Meanwhile, the #2 Alabama Crimson Tide rolled over their opposition, thumping Mississippi State 41-0. Mac Jones threw four TD passes and had just under 300 yards while Najee Harris had 119 rushing yards on 21 carries. The Tide led by 17 after the first and by 27 after the second as they coasted to a very comfortable win that will see them challenging- or hoping to challenge- for that top spot in the nation come the next set of rankings.
