  The jewelry and Bible verses around Uiagalelei's neck and wrists say as much as the stats do about this delightfully different 19-year-old. Uiagalelei offered a tour on Monday. The large "Big Cinco" medallion fits with the No. 5 jersey and goes back to his high school days at St. John Bosco in Bellflower, Calif., 20 miles southeast of downtown Los Angeles. "Someone just called me Big Cinco," Uiagalelei said. "I just heard the name. I said, "Oh, I like that. That's pretty cool. That's like a different thing." So Big Cinco started using #BigCinco in social media posts. The Big Cinco necklace got some play during ABC's telecast of the Boston College-Clemson game, in which Uiagalelei threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns. "I like wearing chains," he said. There's another No. 5 chain. The "T" chain honors his mother, Tausha. But this kid is more than a little glitz. - Charleston Post Courier

  The freshman only learned he'd be starting Thursday afternoon, but he looked poised and confident Saturday. He finished 30-of-41 passing for 342 yards and two touchdowns, and he opened the second half with a 30-yard touchdown run. The way he handled Clemson's first drive was particularly impressive. After the Eagles stormed down the field in four plays to score, Uiagalelei orchestrated a six-play, 65-yard drive capped by a smart throw to running back Travis Etienne against the blitz. Etienne sprinted into the end zone for 35 yards. "He's incredibly poised," Swinney said. That's good news for the Tigers, who will need Uiagalelei to perform well next week in the big showdown with No. 4 Notre Dame. - Charleston Post Courier

  Freshman DJ Uiagalelei threw for 342 yards and two touchdowns in relief of Trevor Lawrence, home with COVID-19, and No. 1 Clemson rallied from 18-points down in the first half to defeat Boston College 34-28 on Saturday. Travis Etienne became the ACC's all-time rushing leader and his second TD put the Tigers (7-0, 6-0 Atlantic Coast Conference) ahead for good. A jarring week for Clemson ended with its 28th straight win over league competition, 10th straight over the Eagles and 27th in a row at home. Clemson was missing several key players. Lawrence was out after testing positive for the virus and starting linebackers James Skalski and Mike Jones Jr. were missing because of injuries. The Eagles (4-3, 3-3) took advantage, putting Clemson in a 28-10 hole in the second quarter with the virus-reduced crowd stunned to near silence. That's when Uiagalelei showed why he was a five-star prospect coveted by every college power and the heir apparent once Lawrence leaves for the NFL. Uiagalelei ran for a 30-yard TD on Clemson's opening third-quarter drive to begin the comeback, then threw an 8-yard scoring strike to Amari Rodgers that drew the Tigers within 28-26. Etienne, Clemson's other Heisman contender, put the Tigers in front for good with a 17-yard touchdown run with 11:34 to go. - Clemson/AP College Football

  Clemson coach Dabo Swinney revealed following Saturday's 73-7 victory over Georgia Tech that both of Clemson's backup quarterbacks are dealing with injuries. D.J. Uiagalelei, Clemson's top backup QB, was held out of Saturday's game because he was sore, according to Swinney. Uiagalelei was available, Swinney said, but Clemson didn't want to use him unless it had to. Swinney declined to say what specifically is sore for Uiagalelei. ESPN reported during the game that Uiagalelei is dealing with a sore shoulder. "I'm not gonna get into the specifics of anything other than he was sore," Swinney said postgame. "He got beat up a little bit in the game last week (against Miami). We just wanted to hold him." - The State

  The Tigers have gone to a jumbo package near the goal line to mix things up in recent years, but Clemson could call upon Uiagalelei - a quarterback - for a different look in 2020. Handing the ball to Etienne or letting Trevor Lawrence throw or run are great options at the goal line, but Uiagalelei's size makes him unique. The 250-pound freshman QB rushed for a pair of touchdowns on Saturday, and Swinney hinted that we could see Uiagalelei called upon near the goal line during closer games in the future. "I'd say anything is possible," Swinney said. "He's 250 pounds. He's a big, strong man. But anything is possible, that's for sure." - The State

  As the top-ranked pro-style quarterback for the class of 2020, five-star prospect D.J. Uiagalelei had plenty of options in regards to where he would play college football. They included most of the top programs in the country, such as Alabama, Georgia, LSU, Ohio State and Clemson. The California native could have gone to a place where he would have had a good shot of earning the starting QB job as a true freshman. Instead, Uiagalelei did the opposite, going to a place where he knew he would have to wait his turn, barring an injury. But Uiagalelei views the chance to play behind Trevor Lawrence as a blessing and not a hindrance.

The 6-foot-4, 250 pounder is learning everything he can from Lawrence in their one season together, before Lawrence leaves for the NFL. "For me, if there was a quarterback like Trevor, coming here and being able to learn from him, that's a bigger accomplishment than going into a place and starting Day 1," Uiagalelei said. "I'm right behind the best quarterback in the country and the best player. For me, I get to pick his brain and see how he does it and just learn from him." Uiagalelei compares his situation now to the one Aaron Rodgers was in when the Packers quarterback was playing behind Brett Favre early in his NFL career. - The State

  If Lawrence were to miss time, Clemson's backup quarterbacks have played 43 snaps combined. "We've gotta have guys ready to play," Swinney said. "We've got to get Hunter Helms ready as well. He was a preferred walk-on that came in here. So we've got to develop as much depth at that position and get as much experience at that position as we can." Uiagalelei is the biggest name of the group as a former five-star recruit and the top-ranked pro-style quarterback in the country. But Phommachanh has been in Clemson's system for a year and has improved by leaps and bounds from when he arrived on campus, by all accounts.

"Obviously Taisun got to play four games last year but still needs a lot of experience. D.J.'s just getting here. So we definitely hope to play as many of those guys as we can as often as we can," Swinney said. "I do know who our starter's going to be. If we get the opportunity to see who goes out there next then we'll see who ole coach Street runs out there." Uiagalelei has received praise since arriving on campus with Swinney saying in the spring that his arm talent "makes Trevor look kind of normal." - The State

  One of the most intriguing battles for Clemson entering fall camp was the backup quarterback job, and with the Tigers' season-opener at Wake Forest less than three weeks away, it remains an ongoing competition. Redshirt freshman Taisun Phommachanh and true freshman D.J. Uiagalelei spent the past couple of weeks competing to see who will be the first guy off the bench behind Heisman favorite Trevor Lawrence. "Man, he's made huge strides in a year. Very talented," Swinney said. "They're different. They're similar in some regards and they're different as well. D.J., he's as advertised. A very, very gifted player. He's 250 pounds. He's just not a typical freshman coming in here. He has just really picked things up quickly. It's a heck of a competition and a great battle. They're both doing some really good things."

Uiagalelei was rated as the No. 10 overall player in the country and the top pro-style QB for the class of 2020. Swinney said of Uiagalelei this spring that, "Sometimes he just kind of makes Trevor look normal with his ability to rip that football...never really seen a guy quite like him." Uiagalelei picked up where he left off when Clemson started fall camp. "He's so talented...super strong arm. He just is a good player, good instincts, even though he hasn't quite figured out all of the offense yet because he just got here," Lawrence said. "But he just is a good natural player, can run, make people miss, obviously he can escape, -do everything you really need from the quarterback position." - The State

  College athletes would get a cut of the millions of dollars generated by the National Collegiate Athletic Association under proposed legislation announced Thursday by a group of Democratic senators. The "College Athletes Bill of Rights" would allow players to earn money from marketing their names, Images and likenesses, and give them a share of the $15 billion intercollegiate sports industry. The proposal also would require standards for health and safety, take steps to ensure that athletes get a college education and are able to graduate from their schools, help athletes pay their medical bills and other expenses incurred from sports-related injuries as well as any illnesses from the coronavirus, and remove penalties for athletes wishing to transfer to another school.

It also provides for a panel of athletes, administrators and others to set rules for college sports. The proposal came as some colleges have abandoned plans to play intercollegiate sports this fall due to the pandemic. The Big Ten, Pac-12, and Big East all have canceled their fall seasons. The senators, who include Cory Booker, a former Stanford University football player, and Kamala Harris, running for vice president this fall, said they formally would introduce legislation later this year. - Star Ledger
