Clemson star QB Lawrence sputters in Superdome again
By admin - January 3, 2021
Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence struggled once again to win at the Superdome in New Orleans. Here are the highlights:
- No. 3 Ohio State celebrated a 49-28 victory over No. 2 Clemson in the College Football Playoff semifinal at the Sugar Bowl in New Orleans on Friday night.
- “I missed a few throws and put too many balls on the ground,” said Lawrence, who fumbled three times but only lost one. “Obviously, it sucks to finish like this.”
- It’s the second consecutive season, Lawrence and Clemson were bounced from the CFP by being blown out in the Big Easy. Last season, Clemson fell 42-25 to LSU in the national championship game.
- Lawrence is expected to be the first draft selection in the 2021 NFL Draft later this year.
- “I tell you what, man, Trevor Lawrence, I know we didn’t win the game, but you saw everything you need to know about that guy tonight,” Clemson coach Dabo Swinney said. “I mean, he just, he wanted to play ’till the last second and give it everything he has. And that’s just who he is as a person.”
