If Trevor Lawrence comes away with another National Championship, the Clemson football QB will accomplish a historic feat.
Clemson football QB Trevor Lawrence has never lost a game.
The sophomore quarterback currently holds a record of 26-0 as a starter and has already won two ACC Championships and a National Title in his Clemson football career.
With all the success he has had, Lawrence has an opportunity to reach a historic feat and join an exclusive group with another win.
If Clemson football beats LSU Monday night, Lawrence will join a group of quarterbacks. Since the 1950s, there have only been a handful of quarterbacks to lead their teams to consecutive National Championships:
- Steve Davis (Oklahoma 1973-75)
- Jerry Tagge (Nebraska 1969-71)
- Tommie Frazier (Nebraska 1992-95)
- AJ McCarron (Alabama 2010-13)
It should be noted that USC’s Matt Leinart also achieved the feat in 2003-04, but the 2004 National Title was later vacated. Florida QB Tim Tebow won two National Titles, but they weren’t in consecutive seasons (2006, 2008).
Oklahoma’s Tommie Frazier is the only CFB quarterback all-time whose consecutive National Championships came with zero losses or ties. Lawrence would join him should the Tigers beat LSU.
All of these quarterbacks are considered some of the greatest in College Football history. If Lawrence won, he would join their ranks and have a solid argument for being the best player in Clemson football history before he ever even played his junior season as a Tiger.
Honestly, he likely will clinch an induction into the College Football Hall of Fame with a win over LSU, considering that would give him two National Championships as a freshman and sophomore, and there’s really no question that he is leaving a legacy for those who will follow in his footsteps.
Lawrence has an opportunity to leave the collegiate game as one of the greatest to ever play and it all would be amplified with a win over LSU Monday night in New Orleans.
