The Tigers will be without freshman cornerback Andrew Booth for the rest of this one, in all likelihood.At the end of a play a few moments ago, Booth was seen clearly punching Louisville’s Trenell Troutman. The bizarre decision to punch someone in the helmet aside, there is obviously no room for it.After the play, Andrew Booth was sent to the locker room. According to those at the game, head coach Dabo Swinney did it before the referees even had the chance to eject him from the game. That was obviously coming, if anyone caught the pretty obvious punch.Video of the play: Clemson cheap shot— △⃒⃘ (@ItsPaoloni) October 19, 2019Clemson has full control of the game, even if Louisville has stayed in it longer than some though. The Tigers just tacked on a third touchdown of the game.Trevor Lawrence has completed 15-of-22 passes for 179 yards and two touchdowns, but he does have two interceptions on the day.Travis Etienne has been the biggest weapon for Swinney’s team, as he often is.  The dynamic running back has 174 yards and a touchdown on just 13 carries, with 35 receiving yards on top of it.Clemson’s fearsome defense has held Louisville’s offense to just 177 total yards on the afternoon so far.Today’s game is being broadcast on ABC.[@ItsPaoloni]last_img read more
