Clemson vs Louisiana Tech: Quarterback Tale of the Tape

·2 min read

The Clemson Tigers are gearing up for their third game of the season, this time against the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs. The Bulldogs are in the first year of the Sonny Cumbie era, he took over the program after Skip Holtz was relieved of his duties. La Tech finished 3-9 last season.

Cumbie brought one of his quarterbacks from Texas Tech, Parker McNeil. McNeil wasn’t named the starter for game 1 but he took most of the snaps last week against Stephen F. Austin. The senior transfer quarterback is tasked with trying to take down a top-5 opponent in Clemson. The Tigers are led by junior QB D.J. Uiagalelei.

As the kickoff for Clemson-Louisiana Tech draws near, we take a look at the tale of the tape between the two signal callers.
