Upset alert: Top-ranked Clemson trailing at half with QB Trevor Lawrence sidelined
Clemson is really struggling in its first game without star quarterback Trevor Lawrence.
The top-ranked Tigers received the news Thursday that they would be without their Heisman contender due to a positive COVID-19 test. Lawrence must now sit out at least 10 days and be cleared before returning to football activities.
That absence is starting to be felt in Saturday’s game against Boston College. The Tigers are heading to halftime trailing to the Eagles, and a big offensive blunder is a key reason why.
After it looked like Clemson would march into the end zone to tie the game at 14-all, a fumbled exchange led to a defensive score by Boston College that made the score 21-7.
97-YARD SCOOP AND SCORE FOR BC 😱
