For the second time this season, Cartersville High product Trevor Lawrence has matched up against a former Canes teammate on the gridiron. And for the second time, Lawrence and Clemson put up 52 points in a blowout win.

Facing Wake Forest and Cartersville all-state performer JaCorey Johns, Lawrence passed for 272 yards and a season-high four touchdowns. After throwing eight interceptions in his first seven games, Lawrence hasn’t thrown a pick in a month.

Clemson will likely remain the No. 3 team in the College Football Playoff this week, setting the Tigers up to play themselves into the four-team field with wins over South Carolina (Nov. 30) and in the ACC championship game (Dec. 7).
