Clemson throttled Notre Dame in the college football playoff semi-finals Saturday night 30-3.

It might have started close, but the Tigers were just way too much for the Fighting Irish to handle. Freshman phenom quarterback Trevor Lawrence sliced and diced all over ND’s defense.

He also managed to throw one of the most beautiful touchdown passes that I’ve ever seen.

It really was a truly impressive performance from Dabo Swinney’s crew. You could feel Clemson pulling away in the second quarter, and next thing you know they’re flying all over the place on Notre Dame. (RELATED: The College Football Playoff Begins Saturday. Here’s Everything You Need To Know)

You almost had to feel bad for the Irish.

Now, Clemson will face the winner of the Alabama/Oklahoma game for the national championship. They will be formidable if Lawrence plays like he did tonight.
