Clemson would have really loved to have Kelly Bryant today.

The same week Clemson benched its senior quarterback in favor of true freshman Trevor Lawrence, leading to Bryant announcing his intent to transfer, Lawrence took a big hit against Syracuse in his first career start, and did not return to the game.

Instead of turning to Bryant, Clemson had to ride with Chase Brice, who'd attempted just six passes in his career entering the game.

At one point in the game, Syracuse led by nine points and seemed to be on its way to an upset over Clemson in back-to-back years, but the Tigers survived 27-23 as Brice finished 7-for-13, throwing for 83 yards and an interception.
