But Clemson QB Trevor Lawrence isn’t most people.According to ESPN, when he was asked this past week what he thought about this year’s Alabama team, Lawrence has this to say:“They’re a great team every year. They’re really good, really well-coached, athletes everywhere.”As far as playing against the No. 1 team in the country, Lawrence showed no fear whatsoever:“Yeah, we’d love to [play Alabama]. We’ll play whoever comes in front of us.”Alabama and Clemson have faced each other in each of the last three College Football Playoff tournaments. The two teams split the national title games, but Alabama got the better of the Tigers in last year’s Sugar Bowl.Lawrence, a freshman, is in his first year as a starter for Clemson. He has helped lead the Tigers to a 10-0 record and the No. 2 ranking in the country.However, if the College Football Playoff ranking stays the way it is, the only opportunity Clemson will have to face Alabama will be in the national title game.last_img
