No. 3 Clemson leads Louisville 17-3 at halftime thanks to a last-minute touchdown drive led by Trevor Lawrence.
Lawrence got off to a rough start with two end zone interceptions on Clemson’s first three offensive possessions. The sophomore quarterback appeared to have another risky throw in the air at the end of the second quarter, but 6-foot-4 wide receiver Justyn Ross soared above Louisville defenders to pull down the 25-yard touchdown pass.
Lawrence finished the first half completing 12-of-16 passes for 165 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. So even while it seems like Lawrence is off to a rough start, he’s still been able to move the ball through the air and locate matchup advantages in the end zone when he extends the play with his feet.
Louisville has two turnovers of its own that have prevented the Cardinals from taking advantage of Clemson’s mistakes, and things are certainly hanging in the balance at halftime after allowing Lawrence’s 60-second touchdown drive. This game was a one-touchdown game for much of the first half, but now Clemson has a two-touchdown lead and will get the ball to start the second half.
