Clemson freshman quarterback Trevor Lawrence was named the national quarterback of the week by Pro Football Focus.

Lawrence posted the highest grade of any college player this week with a 94.2, connecting on 27-of-36 passes for 393 yards with a touchdown:

"Lawrence may not have the touchdown totals as some other quarterbacks this week but his arsenal of throws against South Carolina may be one of the better displays of arm strength and accuracy of the entire 2018 season," PFF's Cam Mellor wrote. "He littered the field with big-time throws (PFF’s highest-graded throws), throwing a national-best 7 BTTs as he dominated across the middle of the field, completing 18-of-21 passes for 246 of his 393 yards and his lone touchdown of the day. The Clemson offensive line kept him clean on 36 of his 38 dropbacks and he made the Gamecocks pay, completing 26-of-36 passes (with 4 drops) for 377 yards and 18 first-down passes."

Lawrence is tied for the conference lead in touchdown passes with Virginia's Bryce Perkins (22) and also leads the way in passer rating (156.82).
