Clemson will go up against Boston College this weekend and they will not have Lawerence in the lineup. This year Lawrence has once-again looked stellar, with 1,833 passing yards and 17 touchdowns to two interceptions. Lawrence posted a message on social media after the announcement went public.

Lawrence hopes to be cleared for the next game when the Tigers go up against No. 4 Notre Dame for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff next Saturday.
Next Man Up
With Lawrence out, the Tigers will turn to freshman DJ Uiagalelei who has completed 12-of-19 passes for 102 yards this season. He has also rushed for two touchdowns. He is a versatile option, but coach Dabo Swinney may have to simplify and change up his approach on offense. The game plan is not the only thing that changed when it was announced that Lawrence would miss the game against Boston College.
Odds On the Move
According to the best college football sportsbooks, Clemson opened up as a 32-point favorite, but that has changed. Clemson is currently as low as a 27-point favorite over Boston College and the public is betting on the underdog. Just 47 percent of the money coming in on this game is on Clemson after the news broke. Track the latest odds on this game and see if the needle continues to move against Clemson without their biggest star in the lineup.
