Brandon Streeter comments on potential quarterback controversy at Clemson
Brandon Streeter told reporters after the game that Clemson does not have a quarterback controversy.
That’s despite DJ Uiagalelei’s third-quarter benching, paving the way for freshman Cade Klubnik.
Klubnik led the Tigers to a trio of scoring drives in the fourth quarter, which was ultimately enough to win the game — along with a stout defensive performance.
However, the Tigers are sticking with Uiagalelei as Streeter said there is “absolutely not” a QB controversy moving forward in Clemson. That echoed a similar sentiment shared by head coach Dabo Swinney after the game.

Klubnik finished the game 2-of-4 for 19 yards. He also carried the ball 6 times for 15 yards. More importantly, remained poised as the Tigers needed points in the fourth quarter.
For Uiagalelei, it was a nightmare outing. The former 5-star recruit had been much-improved this season, but his 3 turnovers nearly cost Clemson a chance to win this game.
The Tigers’ offense will go back to the drawing board — with Uiagalelei at the helm — into their Week 9 bye week. Clemson plays at Notre Dame in Week 10.
