CLEMSON, S.C. — Clemson University head football coach Dabo Sweeney has officially ruled regular starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence out for next Saturday’s game against Notre Dame.
The top-ranked Clemson Tigers are set to travel to South Bend on Nov. 7 to face the 4th-ranked Fighting Irish at Notre Dame Stadium in what has been billed as a highly anticipated match-up in the Atlantic Coast Conference.
Lawrence tested positive for coronavirus just days before the team’s game against Boston College on Saturday, Oct. 30th.
The ACC’s testing protocols mandate that players that test positive for COVID are not eligible to return for a minimum of 10-days.
The Tigers had to come from behind in their game with the the Golden Eagles on of the play of freshman back-up quarterback D.J. Uiagalelei.
He is likely to be the starter again against Notre Dame.
Lawrence is projected to be a first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft if he chooses to forego his next season at Clemson.
