Clemson’s first semi-close ACC road game meant a tighter rotation than the success in blowouts of Wake Forest, Florida State and Georgia Tech.

According to the school, Clemson played 66 of the 72-man roster, meaning that 282 of the 288 ACC travel-roster Tigers played this season.

Brent Venables’ group still saw a good amount of rotation between the first and second teams with 18 of the 23 contributors playing double-digit snaps in the 27-7 win.

Seeing each snap Saturday, Trevor Lawrence played a career-high 73. Freshman RB Lyn-J Dixon continues to impress in limited action, totaling his seventh play of at least 20 yards in just 73 snaps this season. Stepping in for Mitch Hyatt due to injury, Jackson Carman played a career-high 34 snaps and impressed coaches in his time out there.
