Clemson Football: Middle of the field is key to 2020

Take just 30 minutes and pop in any Clemson football game tape from 2019, especially the College Football Playoff, and the offense is the same over and over again. Nearly every throw Trevor Lawrence makes is to the boundary to receivers running nine (fly routes) and they rarely used the middle of the field.


How obvious was this? LSU was giving Trevor Lawrence and Tony Elliott the middle of the field and they failed to take advantage of it. The few times that Trevor did incorporate the middle of the field, they went for big gains.
