Freshman quarterback.

Big road game.

Prime time kickoff.

Division title on the line.

No worries.

“I don’t really get nervous,” says Clemson quarterback Trevor Lawrence.

And why should he? He’s just having fun.

“I like playing in big games – it’s fun to go on the road and experience new things,” Lawrence said. “It’s just another big game for us to prove ourselves and play well. The last game like that was Texas A&M and it was a really good experience, really fun, so I’m excited for this one, too.”

The fact that Saturday night’s showdown between No. 2 Clemson and No. 17 Boston College will unfold in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, only adds to the appeal for the long-haired kid from Cartersville, Georgia.

“I’ve never been to any of these places, never even been up north, really,” said Lawrence, who admits that his farthest foray northward is the state of Virginia. “So it’s going to be cool to go up there and play.”

Everything is cool for Lawrence, the laid-back 19-year-old who has seized leadership of a team only one victory away from securing a fourth consecutive trip to the Atlantic Coast Conference Championship Game.

He wasted little time in announcing his arrival this season, tossing three touchdown passes in a season-opening victory against Furman, then unseating incumbent quarterback Kelly Bryant by Game 5.

Lawrence has since emerged as one of nation’s top rookie quarterbacks, leading all FBS freshmen in passing efficiency and touchdowns. His 18 touchdowns lead the ACC despite Lawrence not starting any of the team’s first four games.

On Wednesday Lawrence was the only freshman in the nation to be named one of 16 semifinalists for the Davey O’Brien Award, which is presented annually to the top college quarterback.
