Russell Wilson's college record safe after rare mistake by Trevor Lawrence


Trevor Lawrence's NFL career is yet to be authored, but if his college track record is any indication, he could end up in some fine company.

Lawrence tossed an interception late in the first quarter during Clemson's laugher over Georgia Tech -- marking the first time he'd thrown a pick in nearly a calendar year, according to ESPN.

During that time, the superstar QB completed 366 passes without an INT -- just 14 shy of the ACC record set by former North Carolina State quarterback Russell Wilson during the 2008-09 seasons, the site reported.

Lawrence's incredible run of ball security came to an end on what appeared to be a botched blocking assignment in the backfield by a running back who was late picking up a hard-charging defensive end.

The 6-foot-6 junior unleashed a risky throw downfield off his back foot, overshooting his targeted receiver, who looked to be in one-on-one coverage.

The ball landed in the waiting arms of Yellow Jackets cornerback Zamari Walton for a relatively easy pick.

For Lawrence, it was his first INT since Oct. 19, 2019, against Louisville.

Clemson and their QB had the last laugh, however, putting up 52 points in the first half -- including five touchdown tosses for Lawrence.

The presumed No. 1 pick in next year's NFL draft was lifted in the third quarter with his team enjoying an insurmountable lead. He finished his day 24-of-32 for 404 yards and the five TDs.
