Trevor Lawrence to Amari Rodgers has been a special connection for Clemson this season and that continued on Saturday in the ACC Championship Game.
Following a missed field goal by Notre Dame, Lawrence threw a 67-yard strike to Rodgers to capture an early lead over the Fighting Irish.

There’s no question that Lawrence has arguably the best arm in college football. And when he has time to step into a throw down the field—as he did on the touchdown play—Lawrence can deliver some spectacular passes.
The first time Clemson and Notre Dame met earlier this season, Lawrence was unable to play due to testing positive for COVID-19. As a result, freshman quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei was forced to start for Clemson, which is an obvious downgrade under center.
Despite Lawrence’s absence, Notre Dame needed overtime to defeat the shorthanded Clemson Tigers. This time around, Lawrence is showing that his presence and talent are enough to swing the tides in Clemson’s favor.
It is well-known that Lawrence is expected to be the No. 1 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. On top of that, it appears that Lawrence is poised to become the quarterback that is tasked with helping the New York Jets emerge from the depths of despair.
Every Saturday, we see Lawrence make some spectacular plays, whether it be with his arm or legs. Even though his 67-yard touchdown pass looked rather easy, it’s because Lawrence can make any throw look easy, which doesn’t bode well for Notre Dame in the ACC Championship Game.
