Clemson subbed out starting quarterback Trevor Lawrence, but the Tigers' Number 2 offense still scored a late TD to cover against Pittsburgh--winning 42-10 and ruining a Perfect 45 for the PGT's Heart of a Hooligan (44). Alabama came from two TD's down in the fourth to beat Georgia 35-28--behind QB Jalen Hurts who lost his job a year ago to Tua Tagovailoa the man he replaced on Saturday. The Crimson Tide remained unbeaten but lost ATS, also ruining a Perfect 45 for Zeke (44). Hooligan picked up his league leading eleventh GridCard win, and Zeke earned his third Hamlin-Hopper.
