Nothing happened [against Furman] to warrant not playing both those guys.”Swinney didn’t give more details than that, though.“We’ll see as the week [of practice] goes,” Swinney told ESPN. “I won’t lay out what our plan is before the game. You like to have a little secrecy as to your plan. But I’ll tell you both of them are going to play.”Lawrence threw for 137 yards and 3 touchdowns in the season-opening win. Clemson and Texas A&M are on ESPN.last_img
