Trevor Lawrence went down with a concussion, but the Tigers’ defense, running game and Chase Brice wouldn’t let Syracuse win the game Saturday afternoon in Death Valley. In this edition of What They Are Saying we look at was has been said on Twitter about Clemson’s victory over Syracuse.
What a drive. 94 yards. @ClemsonFB on verge of escaping.. and a storybook moment for last week’s 3rd string QB Chase Brice. That’s one for the rocking chair.. even more so if Tigers continue on course for the CFP. Wow.

The call. The execution. The celebration.

Yes, Clemson deserves credit for the win, but are they really in the same company as Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State right now? I don't care who their QB is – they have to convince the committee they're one of the four best teams. Raise your hand if you thought they were today. https://t.co/1G4WkAEUdB

I'm not the only one who didn't think Clemson looked top 4 this week: https://t.co/eyJhQ2Oksa

Clemson engineered a 13-play, 94-yard drive that culminated in a game-winning touchdown with 41 seconds remaining. It represents the longest game-winning scoring drive by Clemson to take the lead in the final minute of a game since at least 1959. #ALLIN 🐅 pic.twitter.com/YCjgmxsOp1

As usual, there’s a Twitter eruption because #Clemson fans are on the field after beating Syracuse. For the 5,000th time, Clemson fans go on the field after EVERY SINGLE GAME and have for decades.

Shoutout to freshman Chase Brice.
He began the week as QB3, finished it coming off the bench and leading Clemson to a comeback win. pic.twitter.com/jFsksf75tR

That was one of the most special victories I have witnessed. I am proud of @ClemsonFB for their will to win! Go Tigers!
— Jim Clements (@ClemsonPrez) September 29, 2018
That was a statement by Clemson, in a lot of ways. Defense flipped a switch when it had to, and that ground game was dominant.
And seriously, Cuse is a good team. Not a great team. Not yet. But this is the best Syracuse team in the lifetimes of most of their players.

What a great example for players that aren’t starters. Chase Brice (@ChaseBrice7), former @Grayson_FB Championship QB, began the week as QB3, finished it coming off the bench and leading Clemson to a comeback win.#BITS pic.twitter.com/oC1gP5ACbF
