The No. 3/2 Clemson football team opened 2018 ACC play with a 49-21 win over the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at Bobby Dodd Stadium in Atlanta, Ga. on Saturday. With the win, which marked Clemson’s fourth straight victory over Georgia Tech for just the third time in program history, Clemson remained undefeated at 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the ACC, while Georgia Tech dropped to 1-3 overall and 0-1 in conference play.
Offensively, Clemson was powered by Trevor Lawrence and his receiving corps, as the freshman quarterback completed 13 of 18 passes for 176 yards and four touchdowns to four different receivers. The Tiger defense did not allow a Yellow Jacket pass completion until late in the third quarter and limited the Georgia Tech offense to just over three yards per play for the game. J.D. Davis led the team with 10 total tackles, including eight solo tackles.
