Clemson quarterback Kelly Bryant got his first start as a Tiger on Saturday afternoon in Death Valley and put on a show from the first drive in the 56-3 victory over Kent State. The junior completed 16 of 22 passes for 236 yards and one touchdown, while rushing for 77 yards and another score on seven carries.
The record performance for an opening game as a Clemson quarterback may have surprised many, but it didn’t surprise Bryant. His 313 total yards was a record on opening day for a quarterback.
The media caught up with Bryant following the win.
