  The Heisman favorite passed for 404 yards and five touchdowns while playing only the first half and then one series in the second. He was 14 of 15 passing for 233 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions in the second quarter alone. The Tigers outscored Georgia Tech 35-0 during the period. Lawrence did throw his first interception in 364 calendar days and in 366 pass attempts, but other than the one mistake, which came when he was pressured and threw the ball up for grabs, Lawrence was just about perfect. "He's just having fun. I mean he's enjoying himself. He's really focused on the moment," Swinney said. "He's so focused on his execution and his details, his reads, his footwork, all the little things. Just really proud of him." - The State

  Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence was picked off late in the first quarter of Saturday's game at Georgia Tech. The interception was Lawrence's first of the season and his first since Oct. 19, 2019 at Louisville. Lawrence was intercepted by Zamari Walton. The pass was intended for Cornell Powell but Lawrence faced pressure and threw it up for grabs. (Georgia Tech turned the ball over on downs a few plays later.) - The State

  Clemson easily held off Alabama on Sunday to retain the No. 1 spot in The Associated Press college football poll, extending its longest run atop the poll to seven weeks. The Crimson Tide ran away from Georgia on Saturday night to make the case to be No. 1, but it wasn’t enough to topple the Tigers. Clemson defended its turf with a historic blowout against Georgia Tech. The 66-point rout was the largest ever in an Atlantic Coast Conference football game. Clemson received 54 first-place votes out of 62 from the panel of sports writers and broadcasters. The Crimson Tide got the remaining eight first-place votes. Notre Dame moved up to a season-high No. 3, No. 4 Georgia dropped one spot and Ohio State moved up to No. 5 a week before the Big Ten starts playing. Clemson has been No. 1 since the preseason. The Tigers have been top-ranked 23 times in school history but never more than five times in a season before this year. North Carolina took a big fall, dropping nine spots to No. 14 after losing at Florida State. Oklahoma State is No. 6, with Texas A&M, Penn State, Cincinnati and Florida rounding out the top 10. - AP College Football

  Trevor Lawrence brushed off the first interception he has thrown this season and passed for a career-high 404 yards and five touchdowns as No. 1 Clemson overwhelmed Georgia Tech 73-7 on Saturday. Lawrence completed 24 of 33 passes. All of his scoring passes came in the Tigers' dominant first half. Clemson led 52-7 at halftime and kept adding to the lead in the second half, even with second- and third-(and maybe fourth-) stringers on the field. Lawrence left the game after Clemson's first possession of the second half. Clemson (5-0, 4-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) outgained Georgia Tech 671-204. The Tigers compiled an equally lopsided 29-7 advantage in first downs.

The second-longest streak of passes without an interception in ACC history ended late in the first quarter when Zamari Walton picked off a pass by Lawrence. Under pressure from Georgia Tech's pass rush, Lawrence overthrew Powell. Walton ended Lawrence's streak of 367 passes without an interception. It was Lawrence's first interception since Oct. 19, 2019 at Louisville. North Carolina State's Russell Wilson set the ACC record with 379 consecutive passes without an interception from 2018-19. Otherwise it was one of the best games of Lawrence's career. His previous high was four touchdown passes. He passed that mark in the first half, connecting for two scoring passes with Amari Rodgers. - AP College/Clemson Football

  The top 10 showdown was built up as a matchup between a pair of Heisman candidates in Clemson's Lawrence and Miami's D'Eriq King. Two players exited the game with plenty of Heisman buzz, but both of them play for Clemson. Lawrence accounted for more than 300 total yards and four scores, while Etienne had 149 yards on the ground, 73 yards receiving and a pair of touchdowns. "It just makes your jaw drop sometimes as a quarterback," Lawrence said of Etienne's performance. "You hand it off and there's been a couple of times these past two games where you think he's tackled at the line of scrimmage or will get a yard or two and he pops out and he's gone." King, on the other hand, completed only 43 percent of his passes and turned the ball over twice. - The State

  Miami has one 10-win season since 2004, which is before Trevor Lawrence began elementary school. But Clemson's star quarterback and one of the favorites to win the Heisman Trophy is still well aware of the U's history. Lawrence has seen the highlights. He knows about the swagger Miami was known for. The Hurricanes didn't just make plays in their heyday. They made them, celebrated them and let you know about it. "I just know historically Miami's always been a powerhouse," Lawrence said. "They've always had a certain swag about them that when you play them you know what you're going to get. I think they're definitely getting back to that, and that's really good to see."

The Hurricanes have their highest ranking since being ranked No. 7 the last time they played Clemson in the 2017 ACC title game. Miami wasn't up to the task that day, getting pounded 38-3. The Hurricanes finished 0-3 down the stretch that year after starting 10-0 and haven't really been relevant from a national standpoint since, earning seven wins and six wins the following two years. "I think that's just part of what they do," Lawrence said of the trash talk. "That's part of how they operate, whether that's to get in people's heads or just to kind of hype themselves up, that's part of the game plan, I think. It's going to be a lot of fun. Those games are always fun to be a part of." - The State

  Trevor Lawrence was happy with Clemson's win over Virginia. He was also glad the top-ranked Tigers were challenged a bit this early in the season. Lawrence threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns as Clemson opened 3-0 for the sixth straight year with a 41-23 victory over the Cavaliers on Saturday night. The Tigers (3-0, 2-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) were not crisp at times against Virginia (1-1, 1-1). However, like so often the past few years when pressed, Clemson and Lawrence found what it took to succeed. "I guess we're in a pretty good position when we're kind of disappointed in an 18-point" win, Lawrencre said.

"I'm really glad we got challenged in some new ways. Part of being a great team is making adjustments and getting better." A big part is having talented players like Lawrence, tailback Travis Etienne and receiver Amari Rodgers. Etienne ran for 115 yards and a score. He also caught a 4-yard scoring pass. Rodgers had two TD catches in the final six minutes of the opening half to give Clemson a 24-3 lead that Virginia could not overcome. "They jump out on teams so quickly, they put you on your heels and never let you recover," Cavaliers coach Bronco Mendenhall said. Virginia tried, though, cutting it to 27-17 midway through the third period. That's when Lawrence found Etienne for a final scoring throw to restore Clemson's momentum. - Clemson/AP College Football

  Trevor Lawrence appears destined to be the No. 1 overall pick in next year's NFL draft, and he is already being described as one of the top pro quarterback prospects of all time. Lawrence has been the talk of social media on more than a few occasions over the past couple of weeks, but not just for his play on the field. He is also regularly trending on social media on Sundays as fan bases post about how he could help their team and how they should "tank for Trevor" to get the No. 1 overall pick. "Obviously if you're on social media at all you can't help but see some of it," Lawrence said with a smile. "But it's just funny. It's a new team every week, so I don't think there's any real insight of what's going to happen. It's a long season."

Lawrence, who announced prior to Clemson's opener that this would be his final season of college football, is trying not to pay too much attention to it either. But he can't help but chuckle when he logs onto Twitter and sees that NFL fan bases are tagging him in tweets, begging and pleading for him to end up with their team. "It's just kind of funny, but I don't take it too seriously," Lawrence said. "I know in this position you can't really predict where you're gonna go, what's going to happen. All I can do is enjoy my time while I'm here, perform the best I can, and enjoy where I'm at right now. We'll see next year what happens." - The State

  The star quarterback and Heisman favorite completed 8 of 9 passes for 168 yards and three touchdowns against The Citadel. He also rushed for a touchdown. Lawrence's only incomplete pass was a drop by Amari Rodgers, and through two games he has thrown one inaccurate pass all year. Other incompletions were due to a receiver slipping, drops, etc. For the season Lawrence is 30 of 37 passing for 519 yards, with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He also has three rushing scores. "He's really playing exactly the way he's practicing. What you're seeing on game day is exactly what we see in practice, just incredible focus," Swinney said. "Complete ownership of what we're doing. Great poise, discipline. Great feel for the defensive structures and protections and just really throwing the ball with a lot of confidence. He's special. He's a joy to watch." - The State

  Trevor Lawrence threw nine passes Saturday. Three of them went for touchdowns. It was that kind of day for No. 1 Clemson. Lawrence and star running back Travis Etienne got plenty of rest as the top-ranked Tigers rolled to a 49-0 victory over The Citadel. Lawrence was 8 for 9 for 168 yards, including first-half scoring passes of 54 and 17 yards to Frank Ladson Jr. and 44 yards to Amari Rodgers. "Might have been my most efficient day since I've been here," he said. "That was just fun." Lawrence also rushed for his third TD already this season, leading the way as the Tigers (2-0) improved to 35-0 against teams from the Football Championship Subdivision.

Clemson came out fast, stayed sharp and played just about everybody available in the runaway victory. "Good to see that maturity and leadership, no matter who we play," coach Dabo Swinney said. Lawrence missed his first throw - Rodgers dropped a ball that hit his hands - before hitting his last eight. The Heisman Trophy favorite was largely done when Clemson went up 28-0 in the first quarter. He returned for one second-quarter series and quickly added points with a perfectly thrown pass down the left side to Ladson. "It was good for us to take care of business early and build depth," Lawrence said. - Clemson/AP College Football

  Trevor Lawrence threw for 351 yards and combined for three touchdowns, and No. 1 Clemson continued its domination of Wake Forest with a 37-13 victory on Saturday night in the season opener for both teams. Trevor Etienne ran for 102 yards and a touchdown for Clemson, which improved to 70-5 since the start of the 2015 season under coach Dabo Swinney. Clemson has now outscored Wake Forest 152-19 over the last three seasons, holding the Demon Deacons to just one touchdown. Clemson is looking to win its sixth straight Atlantic Coast Conference title and reach the College Football Playoff national championship game for the fifth time in the six seasons. The last time the Tigers were on the field they lost 42-25 loss to LSU in which Lawrence was held without a touchdown pass. But the Heisman Trophy hopeful looked in solid form against the Demon Deacons. After going three-and-out on its first drive, Clemson scored on its next three possessions, including a pair of short walk-in touchdowns by Lawrence to take a 17-0 lead. On both occasions, the Demon Deacons sold out on the fake handoff to Etienne, allowing Lawrence a free path to the end zone. Lawrence's passes were on the mark for the most part, as he completed 22 of 28 passes. He spread the ball around to eight different receivers in the first half alone as Clemson took a 27-0 lead. - Clemson/AP College Football

The nationally top-ranked Tigers are predicted to finish first in the ACC by 132 of the media panel's 134 voters and are also picked to win the ACC Football Championship Game. In addition, Clemson junior quarterback Trevor Lawrence was selected as the ACC Preseason Player of the Year, and the Tigers led all schools with five players voted to the 27-member 2020 Preseason All-ACC Team. Notre Dame, which will compete as an ACC football member this season, received the remaining two first-place votes. North Carolina placed third in the preseason balloting, followed by Louisville, Virginia Tech and Miami. - Atlantic Coast Conference Football

  A former NFL general manager believes if Lawrence ends up with the Jaguars, Clemson coach Dabo Swinney could join him. Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum said on ESPN's "Get Up!" TV show Monday morning that Swinney joining Lawrence in Jacksonville is "the perfect situation." "There's a lot of speculation in the league that Dabo Swinney, who has been on the short list of multiple head coaching searches, could be a coach that teams want to talk about. And this would really be the perfect storm," Tannenbaum said. Swinney was asked in 2018 if he would be interested in coaching in the NFL and replied "never say never."

"I've never really thought much about it. Nobody's really ever called me and said, 'Hey, do you want to come coach this NFL team?' I've never really put much thought into it," Swinney said at the time. "I've always just been so focused on what I'm doing. I guess you never say never." Swinney signed a 10-year, $93 million deal with Clemson in April of 2019. Swinney's deal includes a buyout if he leaves for a college coaching job, but there is no buyout if he leaves to take an NFL job. - The State

  A new study released by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that less than 7% of the revenue generated by National Collegiate Athletic Association - more than $8 billion annually - finds its way to football and men's basketball players through scholarships and living stipends. "Intercollegiate amateur athletics in the U.S. largely bars student-athletes from sharing in any of the profits generated by their participation, which creates substantial economic rents for universities," the National Bureau of Economic Research study states. The top NCAA Division 1 schools earn approximately $8.5 billion in annual revenue, with 58% percent of that revenue coming directly from men's football and men's basketball programs. The two highest-paid football positions (starting quarterback and wide receiver) would earn $2.4 and $1.3 million, respectively, and starting basketball players would be paid between $800,000 and $1.2 million per year. - Forbes.com

  Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and running back Darien Rencher helped start a movement to try to save the college football season over the weekend. The two organized the "WeWantToPlay" initiative that went viral earlier this week. Lawrence's tweet outlining the conditions under which college football players hope to have a season in 2020 had more than 15,000 retweets and 62,000 likes as of Wednesday afternoon. It was shared by President Trump on Monday, with Trump's tweet receiving an additional 40,000 retweets and 136,000 likes.

A Clemson player having a social media post go viral during fall camp is not something that could have happened during the previous nine years due to a rule that was in place for nearly a decade before this season. During the summer of 2011, Clemson leaders went to head coach Dabo Swinney with a plan to help limit distractions. As a part of that plan, they told Swinney they wanted social media posts banned from the start of fall camp until after the final game of the year. But now, with social justice issues on the minds of several players and the college football season in danger, players are being allowed to speak up. - The State

  A group of senators led by Cory Booker of New Jersey and Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut on Thursday released a plan for reforming college sports with an athletes bill or rights. The legislative plan calls for college athletes to have the ability to earn money for their names, images and likenesses with "minimal restrictions," and much more. The senators also want to ensure for the athletes long-term medical coverage and treatment, enforceable medical standards, academic freedom and revenue sharing agreements.

Last month, NCAA President Mark Emmert appeared before the Senate Judiciary Committee for a hearing about name, image and likeness. Booker and Blumenthal questioned Emmert about athlete welfare and said then their plan for a bill of rights was in the works. Booker and Blumenthal were joined in a statement by seven other senators, including Democrats Chris Murphy of Connecticut, a frequent NCAA critic, and vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris of California. The NCAA is in the process of changing its rules to permit athletes to earn money off their names, images and likenesses for things like endorsements and appearances. - AP College Football

  President Donald Trump said Wednesday that he has spoken with Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and LSU head coach Ed Orgeron about moving forward with the football season. Lawrence has helped spearhead the #WeWantToPlay movement. That's a coalition of players calling on colleges not to cancel the upcoming season because of coronavirus concerns and give student-athletes greater say as it considers safety issues. Trump said Orgeron "feels his players just want to be out there." The president said he's hopeful that both college and high school football would be played in the fall. The Big Ten and Pac-12 said Tuesday they were postponing their football seasons. - AP College Football

  Michigan defensive back Hunter Reynolds saw the tweets from Trevor Lawrence and other college football players pushing for the opportunity to play this season despite the pandemic. Reynolds, one of the organizers behind a players' rights movement in the Big Ten, didn't like the way some on social media seemed to be pitting Lawrence's message against the efforts of #BigTenUnited and #WeAreUnited. "There was a lot of division," Reynolds told AP early Monday morning.

Reynolds got on a call with Lawrence and the star quarterback's Clemson teammate, Darien Rencher, and within a matter of hours the summer of athlete empowerment found another gear. College football players from across the country united Sunday in an attempt to save their season and ensure they will no longer be left out of the sport's biggest decisions. Lawrence, Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields, Oklahoma State All-America running back Chuba Hubbard, Alabama running back Najee Harris and numerous other players from Florida State to Oregon posted a graphic on social media with #WeWantToPlay and #WeAreUnited. - AP College Football

  Several top NFL prospects have opted out of the 2020 college football season, but not the player many pundits project as the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 professional draft. Clemson junior quarterback Trevor Lawrence said Friday evening that he weighed his options as far as whether or not to sit out during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, but ultimately he decided to move forward and play for the Tigers this fall. "I think everyone's thought about it just with everything going on, but since I've made the decision to play I haven't thought about it again. That's my decision. I'm committed," Lawrence said. "I want to play my last year here. That's what I'm excited to do. It's my third year and I even have another one. So I think people are forgetting I've got four years."

The Georgia native added that he had conversations with another potential first-round pick in Clemson running back Travis Etienne about whether or not they should play this year. Lawrence and Etienne both came to the same conclusion. "Me and Travis are definitely here. We're committed to playing. Once I decided I'm playing my mind is off of that," Lawrence said. "After this past year everyone was saying all of this stuff I've got to work on, so at some point you've got to make decisions for yourself. I'm just excited to play football. That's what I do. That's what I love to do." Lawrence "totally gets" other players in college football opting to sit out, but he feels good about the protocols Clemson has in place to keep players in the program safe. - The State

  Trevor Lawrence has had plenty of big moments at Death Valley. Clemson's star quarterback had one of the biggest of his life on Friday. Lawrence proposed to his longtime girlfriend and high school sweetheart Marissa Mowry on Friday at Memorial Stadium, and the two are now engaged, they announced on social media. "Easiest YES of my life!!!" Mowry posted on Instagram. "FOREVER. You're everything I've dreamed of. I love you and can't wait to marry you. #Engaged" Lawrence added on his own Instagram post.

Lawrence and Mowry have been in a relationship dating back to their time at Cartersville High in Georgia where Lawrence was the star QB. Lawrence is now the star quarterback at Clemson and one of the Heisman favorites entering the 2020 season. Mowry plays soccer at Anderson University. She started all 16 matches last season. - The State

  There won't be any activity at South Carolina's Williams-Brice Stadium or Clemson's Memorial Stadium if things don't change with the trajectory of COVID-19 cases, Gov. Henry McMaster warned Wednesday. McMaster's current executive order bans such things as spectator sports, concerts and movie theaters. That's been the case since the beginning of the pandemic in March. That ban will remain in place until the state turns the corner with the cornavirus, the governor said sternly. "I will not remove those restrictions. I cannot lift those restrictions, if these numbers continue to rise and the danger persists. I can't do it. I won't do it," McMaster said. "This fall will not be like other falls. We will not be able to have college football. We will not be able to have high school football."

On Wednesday, there were 1,497 new COVID-19 infections reported in South Carolina, a day after a record 1,741 new cases. The Palmetto State has been at or above record daily coronavirus case counts over the last three weeks. The daily percentage of positive cases among what's been tested also continues to rise, one indicator that the virus' activity is increasing. "Let me make it very clear. Wear a mask and social distance now so we can enjoy high school and college football in South Carolina this fall," McMaster posted to Twitter minutes after Wednesday's press conference. - The State

  Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence is aware that some fans disagree with his decision to be so vocal while speaking out against racism, and to those people Lawrence has a message: good riddance. "It's important for us to stand up for something. It's easy to stay quiet because some people don't want to make people mad," Lawrence said. "But my thoughts on it are - those aren't the kind of fans, followers, whatever (that) you want, if it makes them mad if you stand up for equality." The Tigers star and arguably the face of college football, Lawrence first spoke out about George Floyd's death and the need for change on Twitter May 29, four days after Floyd died when a Minneapolis police officer kneeled on his neck for more than eight minutes.

"There has to be a shift in the way of thinking. Rational must outweigh irrational. Justice must outweigh injustice. Love must outweigh hate. If you put yourself in someone else's shoes and you don't like how it feels - that's when you know things need to change," Lawrence posted. "I'm siding with my brothers that deal, and continuously deal, with things I will never experience. The injustice is clear... and so is the hate. It can no longer be explained away. If you're still 'explaining' it - check your heart and ask why." Lawrence not only posted on social media about there needing to be a change, he took steps towards trying to make a difference. - The State

  The NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee on Thursday announced the approval of a modified "training camp" model for the 2020 season, including walkthroughs to begin in late July. Because most programs had little or no spring practice due to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, schools will be allowed to begin full-squad activities at an earlier date than normal. According to the NCAA's announcement, the new policies assume local and state health policies allow for football activities. "This is the culmination of a significant amount of collaboration in our effort to find the best solution for Division I football institutions," said Shane Lyons, chair of the committee and director of athletics at West Virginia. "Our student-athletes, conference commissioners, coaches and health and safety professionals helped mold the model we are proposing." If schools have their first regular-season game scheduled for Sept. 5, teams could hold mandatory weight training, conditioning and film review for up to eight hours per week from July 13-23. No more than two of those hours could be used for film review. - Birmingham News

  Clemson head football coach Dabo Swinney is catching more heat after a photo surfaced on Twitter Saturday that appeared to show him wearing a "Football Matters" shirt. The shirt added to Swinney's problems after his response to the death of George Floyd that has prompted widespread protests and a national discussion on race. Floyd, a black man, died after Derek Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer, pressed his knee into the back of Floyd's neck for more than eight minutes. The tweet showing Swinney in the shirt has since been deleted, but there are plenty of screenshots of the post. Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who has forcefully spoke out against racial injustice, defended Swinney wearing the shirt. Coach Swinney's shirt, in any way, is not mocking the Black Lives Matter movement. He has been wearing the shirt for months in meetings. Swinney, 50, spoke about the death of Floyd last week. - The Oregonian

  The 2020 college football season could be shortened so that conference championship games would be completed by Thanksgiving, according to a report Wednesday by The New York Times. NCAA president Mark Emmert met with members of Congress via conference call Wednesday to discuss contingency plans in relation to the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, according to the report. The news came as college football players began returning to campus for the first time since March to participate in strength & conditioning workouts.

Emmert told House members that the season would begin as scheduled on Labor Day weekend if local health guidelines allow it. Teams typically play their final regular-season game on Thanksgiving weekend, with conference championship games the first week of December. However, with a "second wave" of COVID-19 feared as weather turns cold, there appears to be urgency to finish the season earlier than normal. Several schools are planning to return to on-campus classes this fall, but cease in-person instruction following the Thanksgiving holiday. - Birmingham News

  As arguably the face of college football, Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence has a large platform. The rising junior and likely No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft used that platform to speak out against "injustice" Friday afternoon. Lawrence, who has 85,000 Twitter followers, sent out a pair of tweets on Friday, presumably in response to George Floyd's death. Floyd, an unarmed black man, died in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Monday after being handcuffed by officers. Video came out later showing an officer kneeling on Floyd's neck for several minutes while Floyd cried out that he couldn't breath.

Several prominent figures have spoken out against the incident over the past several days, including Lawrence. "There has to be a shift in the way of thinking. Rational must outweigh irrational. Justice must outweigh injustice. Love must outweigh hate. If you put yourself in someone else's shoes and you don't like how it feels-that's when you know things need to change," Lawrence posted on Twitter. - The State

  The commissioners who represent the five biggest conferences in college athletics wrote a letter to Congress, pleading for the passage of a federal law to regulate potential endorsements earned by college athletes hoping to profit off their name, image and likeness. The letter, first obtained on Friday by Stadium, comes as several states have proceeded with passing their own policies on name, image and likeness, forcing the hand of college administrators. Last month, even the NCAA publicly acknowledged its support for updating rules regarding amateurism by 2021.

In the letter, commissioners from the Pac-12, the Southeastern Conference, the Big 12, the Big Ten and the Atlantic Coast Conference took it upon themselves to ask Congress for a "single, national standard for NIL" that would supersede any state law. The letter said that "time is of the essence." "We intend to work with the NCAA to help shape those rules, but the Congressional process should move forward in the meantime," the letter read. "In the absence of federal NIL legislation, we expect most if not all states to pass their own disparate NIL laws in early 2021 to take effect in the summer of 2021 if not sooner." - Los Angeles Times

  Sports fans around the country have been glued to the television during "The Last Dance" centered on Michael Jordan during the past several weeks. Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is no different. "Did I watch it? Are you kidding me. I had my ankles taped, my eye black on. I mean I was daggum ready, man," Swinney said during an interview with WCCP following the first two episodes last month. "It was like mandatory watching in the Swinney household. I sent the whole team a message saying, 'Hey, we end all debate tonight. Make sure you're tuned in.'" Swinney has made his admiration for Jordan well known over the years, and last football season Swinney told the story of how he met Jordan while on his bachelor party. Swinney revealed during his interview with WCCP that in his 20-plus years of coaching he has taken several lessons from Jordan and shared them with his team.

"One of the greatest quotes, and I've used it many times with my teams over the years... (Jordan) was asked one time why he plays so hard on Game 49 on the road or whatever. And his response was, 'Because it may be somebody's first time ever seeing me play,'" Swinney recalled. "Obviously he was magical with his skills, but it was the mental part of it. How hard he worked when nobody was watching and just his love of winning...I just always had such great respect for him, and to me he's just been such an ultimate competitor." It helps to explain why Swinney's teams have been so good against lesser competition during his time as the head coach. Swinney's program is known for treating every game the same and not looking ahead. - The State

  If we needed any more examples about how shaky the prospects are for the 2020 college football season, they were delivered in the last couple of days. There was Mark Emmert, the grand exalted poobah of the NCAA, saying this on Friday - "All of the commissioners and every president that I've talked to is in clear agreement: If you don't have students on campus, you don't have student-athletes on campus." This, a day after Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said this - "I suspect there may be some institutions that are 100% online, and if they are and if that's also what the student-athletes are doing, I think that meets the criteria." Gentlemen, prepare for a wild ride this summer. We will have a college football season because we have no choice.

The college athletics financial model is so fragile that college football must be played in some shape or form so that enough money can be generated to fund the other sports. "Whatever form it takes," said Tony Barnhart, Mr. College Football, "it takes." Exactly. One of the biggest problems college sports has is the lack of one voice with ultimate authority. As a result, there is no clear definition of how we are going to attack what will be a strange season. "I've been saying for years there needs to be a commissioner of college football," said Fox Sports' Tim Brando. "You look at how the NFL is handling this and how college football is handling this and it's painfully obvious that there is leadership on one side and not the other." - Gainesville Sun

  Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) on Thursday sent the strongest signal yet concerning Congressional interest in legislation relating to college athletes' ability to make money from the use of their name, image on likeness. Wicker sent a letter to the NCAA, each of the Power Five conferences and dozens of other college sports organizations and schools asking for responses to 20 questions related to the issue. The letter cites the Commerce Committee's "jurisdiction over matters related to interstate commerce generally and sports in particular," and asks for written responses by June 5. This indicates the likelihood that there will be a hearing on the matter before the full committee and that the committee will be the launch point for any bill that originates in the Senate.

Thursday's letter comes a week after the NCAA Board of Governors, the association's top policy-making group, approved a broad set of recommendations concerning rules changes related to athletes' use of their name, image and likeness. The moves would allow athletes to have endorsement deals, make money from public appearances and social media, sell their memorabilia and autographs, as long as schools aren't involved in arranging these activities and they are not used as recruiting inducements. - Austin American Statesman

  Joe Burrow and LSU might have gotten the best of Trevor Lawrence and Clemson in the national championship game in January, but that doesn't necessarily mean that Burrow will be better than Lawrence at the next level. Fox Sports radio host Colin Cowherd recently discussed whether or not Lawrence or Burrow is the better pro prospect and said the choice is an easy one. Lawrence is expected to be the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, while Burrow went No. 1 overall in the 2020 draft last month. "Downgrading Trevor Lawrence because he lost to probably the best college football team ever makes no sense," Cowherd said, adding that people he talks to around the NFL don't believe Burrow is the better pro prospect. "Not a single GM I know thinks that. Not one." Burrow had arguably the greatest season of any college football QB ever in 2019, passing for 5,671 yards and 60 touchdowns, with six interceptions, while completing better than 76 percent of his passes. Lawrence passed for 3,665 yards, 36 touchdowns and eight picks last season, but Cowherd believes the disparity in numbers is due in part to the disparity in talent between the two teams. "High school? Not close. I saw Trevor Lawrence play in high school. He's bigger than Burrow, stronger, better arm, bigger hands, better athlete. Everything," Cowherd said. - The State

  The commissioners of the major college football conferences told vice-president Mike Pence on Wednesday there would be no football this fall until campuses were deemed safe for students following the coronavirus pandemic. The 10 commissioners - representing the SEC, ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, Pac-12, Conference USA, Sun Belt, American Athletic, Mid-American and Mountain West - as well as Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick spoke to Pence via a 30-minute conference call. The call took place as part of the government's exploration of when it might be safe to "re-open" to nation's economy. American Athletic Conference Commissioner Mike Aresco told the AP he and his colleagues sought to impress upon Pence the difference between college and professional sports, most notably that colleges cannot quarantine athletes (who are also students) the way pro leagues could if needed.

Various professional leagues, including the PGA Tour and Major League Baseball, have tentative plans to try and play or resume their 2020 seasons without fans in attendance. Pence was "hopeful and optimistic" and asked good questions, Bowlsby said. All major American professional and college sports have been shut down since mid-March due to COVID-19, resulting in the cancellation of the NCAA basketball tournament, College World Series and spring football practice. Fall football practice typically begins in August, with the season set to open on Labor Day weekend. However, most players are on-campus beginning in June to participate in voluntary workouts with teammates, as well as attend classes. - Birmingham News

  The College Football Playoff spring meetings, pretty much a staple for Las Colinas, have been reduced to a teleconference later this month by the coronavirus. And CFP executive director Bill Hancock is sporting a beard for the first time in 44 years. But the CFP itself has yet to be impacted. Even with all the speculation about everything from shortened seasons to no games whatsoever to spring football, Hancock said his group is focused on a season that's very familiar. "Oh, we are knee-deep in planning for this year's CFP as we always do in the spring," Hancock said by email Monday. "We're confident about the season."

That would mean kickoff on Labor Day. Those snapshot CFP rankings beginning in November. Selection Sunday in December. And the New Year's Six bowl games, which includes the Cotton Bowl on Dec. 30, and the CFP title game. Asked specifically about Plans B, C and even D, Hancock said the playoff hasn't explored any contingency plans. "No, we have not," Hancock said, pointing to the title game site. "We're busy planning for Miami on January 11." For now, Hancock doesn't want to speculate about moving the title game and all the New Year's Six games to sometime in April or May. "I wish I could help, but it's way premature to speculate about that," Hancock said. "The situation in our country seems to change every few days. There's really no need to speculate in April." - Dallas Morning News

  There have been plenty of theories floated around over the past couple of weeks in regards to what will happen to the college football season in 2020. ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit is on record as saying he would be "shocked" if the NFL or college football takes place this fall, while Brett McMurphy of Stadium recently reported that one of the possibilities being considered is playing games into next spring, with the national title game taking place in May or June of 2021. Then there is Dabo Swinney's opinion. Clemson's head coach went an entirely different route when speaking with the media Friday morning, stating that he fully expects college football to begin on time in about five months. "My preference is to let's get to work and let's go play. That's the best case scenario. I think that's what's going to happen. I have zero doubt that we're going to be playing," Swinney said. "The stands are going to be packed and the Valley's going to be rocking. I don't have any doubt."

Swinney acknowledged that there are plenty of other possibilities being thrown around, just not any that he is willing to consider. He doesn't have "any doubt" that fall camp will start on time in August and the college football season will start on time shortly thereafter. Swinney pointed to different accomplishments by the United States in the past as the reason for his optimism. "I mean this is America, man. I mean we've stormed the beaches of Normandy. We've sent a car and drove around on Mars. We've walked on the moon. This is the greatest country and the greatest people in the history of the planet," Swinney said. "We've created an iPhone that I can sit here and talk to all you people in all these different places. We've got the smartest people in the world. Listen, we're gonna rise up and we're gonna kick this thing right in the teeth and we'll get back to our lives." - The State

  Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend have restarted their efforts to raise money for those affected by the new coronavirus. They announced their decision Saturday on social media. The two had set up a GoFundMe page earlier this week until told by Clemson compliance officials the site violated NCAA rules against using an athlete's name, image and likeness for crowd funding. But the NCAA said Tuesday that Lawrence and other athletes could use such sites to raise money in this case. Lawrence's girlfriend, Marissa Mowry, is a soccer player at Anderson University, about 15 miles from Clemson's campus. They created the "Trevor Lawrence and Marissa Mowry COVID-19 Relief Fund" designed to provide direct assistance to families affected by the pandemic. - AP College Football

  Count Kirk Herbstreit as one of those who believe there will not be a college football season this fall, thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The ESPN analyst talked about why he thinks COVID-19 will keep teams on the sidelines. "I'll be shocked if we have NFL football this fall, if we have college football. I'll be so surprised if that happens," Herbstreit said, per TMZ. "Just because from what I understand, people that I listen to, you're 12 to 18 months from a (coronavirus) vaccine. I don't know how you let these guys go into locker rooms and let stadiums be filled up and how you can play ball. I just don't know how you can do it with the optics of it." On Monday, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell sent a memo Thursday to all 32 teams stating the 2020 NFL Draft is still a go April 23-25, but Herbstreit said he would shut down the season. "Next thing you know you got a locker room full of guys that are sick," he said. "And that's on your watch? I wouldn't want to have that." "As much as I hate to say it, I think we're scratching the surface of where this thing's gonna go." - Birmingham News

  It turns out Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend didn't do anything wrong when they were trying to help coronavirus victims and their families. What sounded like a noble effort but might have been an NCAA violation is OK after all. The NCAA said Tuesday the couple can resume their fundraising efforts after Clemson officials had shut down their gofundme.com page - "Covid-19 Family Relief and Support" - for fear the quarterback was committing a violation.

Lawrence and his girlfriend Marissa Mowry received the go-ahead from the governing body for the page after Clemson's compliance office had halted their efforts Monday afternoon - hours after they launched it. The roller-coaster ride had left Lawrence - one of the leading Heisman Trophy candidates heading into next season - and Mowry, a soccer player at Anderson (South Carolina) University, apologizing for trying to do what they thought was right before the NCAA stepped in. The NCAA said in a statement it did not ask Clemson to take down the gofundme.com page. The NCAA said it will continue working with its member schools to ensure athletes and those affected by the virus are supported. - AP College Football

  The Clemson spring football game is the latest athletics event to be postponed by the coronavirus, Clemson University announced Sunday night. The game was originally scheduled for April 4, but Clemson announced Sunday that all university events, programs and activities have been suspended through April 5, including the spring game. There is currently not a planned date for it to be rescheduled, a Clemson spokesperson told The State. "Clemson Athletics is in full support of the University's announcement. The priority at this time is the safety of our student-athletes, coaches and fans and mitigating the impact of COVID-19," Clemson Athletics said in a statement. "We will continue to engage with the university, local authorities and the ACC as we look to act in the best interest of our community." Clemson has already completed nine of its 15 spring practices, and there is no guarantee that the other six will take place. - The State
