DALLAS (AP) Clemson and Notre Dame werent even a month into this season when they made unexpected quarterback switches while undefeated with seniors who had won a lot of games.
Neither of those senior starters was even injured, but the Tigers and Fighting Irish decided to make early changes. Both teams are still without a loss and now in the College Football Playoff.
Trevor Lawrence was named Clemsons new starter going into the Sept. 29 game against Syracuse after the true freshman had played behind Kelly Bryant each of the first four games. That was a week after Ian Book supplanted Brandon Wimbush as Notre Dames No. 1 quarterback .
