Two-Minute Drill: Brice, Etienne, Thomas step up to help Tigers escape Syracuse

Despite losing starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence and needing a 94-yard drive late in the fourth quarter to win, Clemson rallied to beat Syracuse behind the play of backup quarterback Chase Brice and running back Travis Etienne.

Brice made a critical fourth-down pass to Justyn Ross for 20 yards on the game-winning drive, as well as running 17 yards on the following play, while Etienne rushed for 203 yards and scored three touchdowns, including the game-winner with 41 seconds to play.

Freshman defensive end Xavier Thomas also stepped up and made two huge plays for the Tigers in the final moments.
