“He’s just so poised. He just sees it. And he’s got a gift of an arm,” Tigers coach Dabo Swinney stated. “But I just love his humility and how consistent he is with his preparation, day in and day out. Easy, easy guy to coach. Easy guy to get behind and support. His teammates love him.”
Along with the arm of Lawrence, the protection of the Tigers (14-0) stifled the Fighting Irish (12-1) in all sides, limiting them to 248 yards.
Still, issues had been shut early, as neither aspect may handle greater than a area objective within the first quarter. But early within the second, Lawrence discovered freshman receiver Justyn Ross for a 52-yard scoring strike to provide Clemson a momentum it might by no means relinquish.
Ross completed with six catches for 148 yards and two lengthy touchdowns.
Notre Dame misplaced All-America cornerback Julian Love left the sport within the first quarter with what coach Brian Kelly stated was a head damage. It was at about that point that Lawrence began having his manner.
