Clemson Quarterback Depth Football

Clemson's Swinney not worried despite several QB transfers

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) — Clemson coach Dabo Swinney is not concerned about his quarterback spot, even though the once-loaded depth at the position has been cut in half.

When the Tigers ended last season, the Atlantic Coast Conference champions appeared more than set behind center with Kelly Bryant returning as starter and three experienced backups who'd been through Clemson's system in Zerrick Cooper, Tucker Israel and Hunter Johnson.

Alabama-USC to open 2020 football season in Arlington, Texas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — Alabama and Southern California will meet in Arlington, Texas to open the 2020 college football season.

The game announced Wednesday will be a rematch of the 2016 AdvoCare Classic at AT&T Stadium. The Crimson Tide won 52-7 in the programs' eighth meeting but first in more than three decades.

Alabama athletic director Greg Byrne says the matchup on Sept. 5, 2020 gives fans "a bowl-like experience coming out of the gates."
