UPDATE: Clemson running back Travis Etienne did return to the game in the third quarter.


Clemson has had a ton of success running the ball this year thanks to Travis Etienne and his freshman running back record of 13 touchdowns this season. However, he took a massive hit in the Sugar Bowl and according to ESPN’s Holly Rowe, he has been pulled from the game.

He only had one carry for three yards early into the game before he was pulled and now the load will fall to Kelly Bryant, Adam Choice and Tavien Feaster.
